Digital Downloads Review
With Shopify you have to incorporate an additional app, called Digital Downloads, to sell your digital products through the system.
We’ve often stated that Shopify is the most versatile, feature-packed, ecommerce platform you can find, and selling digital products is no different at all. With their Digital Downloads app, your Shopify customers get access to the digital content immediately! You can also forward product updates to people who who have previously purchased.
The uploading process works just fine, and all of the money goes directly to your payment processing account. You keep all of the money, which is always nice.
The checkout and shopping cart are highly customizable too so you can make it look like your brand.
Shopify’s Digital Downloads app is a free and easy to use app that allows you to offer digital products in your Shopify store. Yup, you don’t have to pay for the app, but the standard Shopify and payment processing fees are required (starting at $14 per month).
It’s a great app overall. It does what it says. It is indeed a great way to sell digital content. We found this to be simple to install and use for selling photographs and video content for immediate download.
