The e-commerce.

Virtual Products - How?! Help Please!


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I was wondering if someone could help me. I would like to create a store consisting entirely of downloadable e-books and software, where there is no shipping but upon payment the customer gets a download link. Is this possible with osCommerce? On the website it says it is but I can't figure out how.

I would really appreciate you assistance.

Thanks heaps

First, put the product to be downloaded in the download folder on the Internet:



It will be read from the "pub" folder.

Make sure /catalog/pub is 777 and /catalog/download is 755 and these files in catalog/includes/configure.php have the forward slash:


define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'download/');



Thank you so much for this link, but oh my god, what the hell does this mean? Do I have to create the catalog folder? What is with the numbers? Would someone nice and patient care to explain to this dummy in laymans terms what i have to do?


Thank you so much

When we say /catalog/pub, catalog is the name of the folder that osC is in when you download a copy

If your store is in the root folder it will be /pub

To change permission on the folders use your ftp software and right click the folder, you should have a CHMOD function
