Any commerce software support downloadable products should suffice 
(GIYF).  Customer clicks a link, fills in payment info, they get a 
download page and/or email with download link.  If you're concerned 
about customers distributing unlicensed copies, you might want to look 
into PDF ebook/DRM features -- though generally that requires a copy of 
Acrobat, not just Reader, so you may not feel it worthwhile.  IIRC Adobe 
Acrobat Pro has tools for secured PDF's built-in, and Google has a lot 
to say on this too:
