Digital Products are at the core of Digital Downloads Pro, and are what link your Shopify products to your digital content and files.
You can create digital products for any product or variant in your Shopify store, and then attach content to be delivered to the customer whenever the linked Shopify product is sold.
Note: Digital Products can have a "draft" or "active" state. Only digital products that are "active" will be delivered to customers when a linked Shopify product is sold.
Creating a Digital Product
Creating new digital products in the app goes through 3 main steps. Linking a Shopify product or variant, adding digital content, and activating when ready.
Linking a Shopify product
The first step is to add a new digital product and link it to one of your existing Shopify products.
Login to Digital Downloads Pro
Go to the "Digital Products" page
Click the "Add digital product" button
You will now see the Digital Product editing page
Click the "Browse products" button to search for your existing Shopify product you would like to link to the digital product. You can select all variants of the product, or a specific variant.
Once done, click "Save"
Adding digital content for delivery
Next you will want to add some digital content (files, license keys and/or custom links) to be delivered to customers whenever the linked Shopify product is sold.
Click on the "Add files", "License key list" or "Custom link" depending on what type of content you would like to deliver to customers. You can add existing content from your Content Library or add new content if needed.
Repeat this step to attach additional content for delivery.
Activating your digital product
After you have completed the 2 steps above to link your Shopify product, and add some content for delivery, you can "active" the digital product.
Click the "Activate" link found at the top of the page.
When a digital product is "active" the system will start monitoring all of your orders, checking if they contain the linked Shopify product. If they do, then the system will create an order in Digital Downloads Pro, and if the delivery and fraud protection rules are met, send an email to the customer with links to access the digital content.
You can repeat the above guide to setup and link as many digital products as needed.
Pause or stop a digital product from delivery
To pause or stop a digital product from being delivered to new customer orders, change it's status to "Archived". This ensures existing customers can continue to access their purchased content, while not delivering it to new orders.
