A download file or eship delivered product can be sold to customers through the shopping cart option. The download file can be uploaded to the site via the control panel (if small enough), through FTP (if it is large or for ease of uploading multiple files at one time) or can be connected through the Amazon S3 account.
Follow these steps to sell the one time purchase of a download file through the shopping cart:
Click on each section to expand for more information
Under 'Commerce' choose 'Shopping Cart'
From the shopping cart menu, choose 'Add/Edit Products' and choose 'New - Add New Item' from the drop down menu
Enter the product information for the required fields for all products, as well as any other fields that are necessary for this product:
Fields Specific to the Setup of a Download File
A product can be sold as just a download file, or a download file can be sold along with a physical product. These options can be found in the 'Internet Delivery' field.
Download File Only Product
In the 'Internet Delivery' field Choose 'Internet Delivery Only' from the drop down menu
Download File Plus a Physical Product
In the 'Internet Delivery' field Choose 'Internet + Physical Delivery' from the drop down menu. A download will be delivered electronically and a physical product will be shipped to the purchaser.
Choose the Download File
There are three ways to add the download file to this product setup. The download file can be added to the product via the two 'Eship File' fields or the 'Amazon S3 File' field
Upload the File Directly to the Add Product Page
From the first 'Eship File' field click the 'Choose File' and select the file from the local directory.
Choose a File From Your Amazon S3 Account
If an Amazon S3 account has been connected to the site, and the download file can be delivered through the Amazon S3 account, select the file through the 'Amazon S3 File' field by clicking on My Amazon S3 Account.
Choose a File Uploaded via FTP
If the file had been uploaded via FTP to the ftptemp folder, select the name of the file from the second 'Eship File' field.
Add the Download Instructions for the Purchaser
When the user purchases a download file, they will receive an email receipt along with a link and password to access the download.
After clicking the link the user will be brought to a page on your site which will include the download link and any text added to the 'Item Download Instructions'.
Include any other sales information on that page or instructions to download the file. HTML can be added to that field.
Click on the 'Add this Item' button to add the new download or eship file.
