If you will be selling digital products (products that customers can download) there are only a few differences between adding physical and digital products.
|Max downloads per file||In this example, we'll give our customers 2 chances to download the file (in case something goes wrong with the first download).|
|Lock downloads to IP address||Enabling this would make it so that the IP address accessing the download link must also match the IP address that made the purchase. Use this cautiously. Since you can limit the number of downloads allowed, this is most likely not necessary. This should be all of the settings you need to adjust for digital products.|
In the Add New Product page, type in the name for your product and a description.
|Variations||Once you have saved the product as a draft, you can then choose the variations for the product. This probably more applicable to physical products but you might be offering a digital file in different file types or or sizes (e.g. images).|
|Product Download||Use the Browser button in this area to select the file you will be selling for download.|
|Product Images||By clicking the Manage Product Images link you can upload images from your local computer or choose images from your Media Library to use for the product image. When using an image already in the Media Library, click the Show link for that image and then select the Use as Product Thumbnail link. Click the Save all changes button to save your product image.|
|Shipping||If you will be selling both digital and physical products and have not disabled the Shipping module for the entire store, you can select Disregard Shipping for this Product. Otherwise, if you have disabled the Shipping module under Store settings, you will not see the Shipping area for the product.|
|Product Categories||Your product categories are listed on the right side of the page. Choose the category or categories to assign this product to.|
|Price Control||Also found on the right side of the page. Enter in the price (and/or any sales price) for your product.|
|Taxes||If you need to assign a specific tax band to your product, you can do so in this area. Please note, if you need to create Tax Bands, navigate to the Taxes tab in Settings > Store.|
While there are other options to choose from when adding new products, they are not required. For further information regarding product options, please see the plugin developer's documentation:
If you do not have any variations to add to your product, you can click the Publish button to save your product and publish it to your site. If you would like to add variations, you can click the Save Draft button to only save the product.
If you have additional products, you can continue adding those as needed.
