Posted on April 15th, 2019


A downloadable product is a type of product that allows shoppers to get it as a file, such as an eBook, music, video, software application, or update. We can use a downloadable product to deliver an electronic version of your product catalog. The steps to create the downloadable product for your Magento store are listed below.

5) By expanding the section ‘Downloadable Information’, in the ‘Links’ section, enter the Title for the download links you want to use. Then add new link by clicking the Add New Link button.  After that enter the Title and Price of the download. From the two options (Attach File (File) or Enter Link (URL)), select the distribution methods as your wish. In the Sharable field, select Yes if you wish customers to login to their account before accessing the download link. Otherwise select No, so your clients will get the link via their email and enable to share with others. In the Max Downloads enter the number of times clients can download the link. To allow unlimited downloads, mark the Unlimited checkbox under the Max Downloads option.
