    You would be buying the product key and download the Windows install program. If you have the key you could download and create an ISO disk if you wish:
    Create Bootable USB or DVD with Windows 8 ISO

    Try to buy it somewhere reputable. There are a lot of scams.

    I don't know the site. Honestly 15.37 seems far far too cheap to be legit as microsoft.fr is 279.

    Newegg is $140 for OEM or $199 retail Operating Systems, Microsoft Windows OS - Newegg.com

    That site has not been approved as a reseller by M$... They are most likely MSDN keys - if you want to chance it - you can contact M$ and ask them to verify the key ( with Windows 7 we could check whether the key was MSDN via the product ID)

    If it doesn't check out get a refund from Paypal as it will be an illegal transaction.
