Creating a Digital Product for Download
When you create a digital product for download, you have to first make sure that the Product Type is set to Digital so that you can see the other settings.
After you have set the Product Type to Digital, scroll down and find Digital Downloads. Then, you can do it in either of these two ways:
- Place the file path field according to where it's located on the server.
- Directly upload your product file.
If you have run through all the steps mentioned above and you still can't get the digital download to work, please contact technical support to ask for assistance
