Reading Time: < 1 minuteSo far, we’ve covered a good variety of WooCommerce topics – we touched on order management, product creation and shop customizing. One scenario we haven’t covered yet is selling non-physical products. For example, what would you do if you needed to sell a subscription or a digital download?
In this article we’ll quickly go over how you can setup digital products for download. These are products that are not shipped to the user but rather an item they download – like an eBook.
How can I add digital download products to my store?
You can add a digital download product the same way as you would a simple product or a variable product. The only big difference is that you need to mark it as ‘downloadable’. Next you need to add the downloadable file, or files, to that product.
As you can see, in the example above, the process is very similar to creating any other product. Once you click the Downloadable check box you’ll have fields specific to digital products. In these fields you can control: a) the files included in this digital product, b) the amount of times the consumer can download the product, and c) the number of days before the download link expires.
Overall the process is the same as creating a basic product in WooCommerce with a few new options. If you’re familiar with building products in WooCommerce then creating your first digital product should be a breeze. If you’re trying to create something more advanced though you can always read the official WooCommerce docs on Digital/Downloadable Product Handling.
