Digital Products for Shopify gives you the tools to sell non-physical or digital goods through your Shopify store and deliver them to your customers. The app works by linking a Shopify product/variant to what we call a Digital Attachment in the app. Attachments represent one or more files that are delivered to your customers when they purchase the product on your storefront.
You can fully customize the delivery notifications (email or SMS) using the same liquid template language used for Shopify themes. By default customers are able to download their Digital Product directly from the Shopify order status page, however this can be changed to instead link to a download page that serves information about the files they’ve purchased and buttons to download those files if available (see download restrictions and access controls). Both delivery options can be full customized from within the app and examples of both and the download page are below.
Direct Download from Order Status Page
Download Page Link
If you have restrictions for customers such as limits of number of times an attachment can be downloaded or length of time after purchase it can be downloaded, these options can be configured on the attachment edit page in the app. A related and more advanced feature is access controls for downloads, such as requiring the customer to enter a valid access code or license key to be able to download the file. These codes/keys can be automatically generated for you or you can provide a list in the attachment configuration area in the app.
Search Orders and Track Downloads
Finally, you can browse/filter/search orders for an attachment on the orders page within the app attachment area, or keep track of downloads for the attachment in-app on the downloads page for the attachment.
That covers the core features of the app. Check out the Getting Started guide for a quick walk through of setting up an attachment. If you have any more questions feel free to contact us or browse this help center.
