Google Drive has become one of the easiest and fastest ways to store all kinds of data for digital creators and coaches. It also provides an easy outlet for hosting digital courses and products.

However, this poses a new kind of challenge; manually receiving payment from hundreds of customers that want to pay for your digital product and also manually giving them access to the Google Drive folder hosting your courses.

With Nestuge, hosting your courses on Google Drive and selling them to your customers just got 10 times easier, faster and also AUTOMATED!!

With our Google Drive integration on Nestuge, you can share files to your audience without having to manually accept every request and also receive payments from them.
