I was curious which sites are the top recommended sites to sell your application on? About 2 weeks ago I filled out a form for Handango and never heard back from them despite two follow up emails. I never got a chance to describe my application to them, I simply filled out my contact information and was told via an automated response that I would hear from them within 2 business days, which never happened.
Anyone know of any other sites that are reputable and not so painful to start the process of selling an application?
Thanks in advance for everyone's input.

Does the app need to talk to a server? You could consider subscription/pay-per-use or even ad support
with a free download. If you have a server it probably isn't hard to use pay pal or even accept credit cards
but you would need some way to get people to find you.
I don't really have an answer, just trying to start a thread

Thanks for the input marc, I do appreciate it. The app I'm currently working on doesn't require a server to talk to. I'm creating my own site to sell it but, I just need the traffic (as you mentioned). I already registered and have an account with Google Checkout (they're free as opposed to paypal). I have registered with a few sites as a developer that already have the traffic (handango, handmark, pdatopsoft, etc...), but none have gotten back to me as yet.
I was hoping that someone has experience with registering and starting up with some of these sites that I could get some advice and/or suggestions from on how to get started myself.

The model which only works for us so far :
- distribute for free a trial or demo application
- to activate it, request the user to go with a payment/authorization from your server and use the server to unlock the app.
I am waiting to see the BB app store... Should be available in the 1Q/2009....
