The e-commerce.

how do I do digital products?


Recommended Posts

I have only just got into using oscommerce for the first time as I never needed to use a cart system with my website that I have before.


The products that I would like to sell is digital downloadable products but I can not see how to do this in os commerce and wondered how you achieved this?


Is it possible to have mutiple selections as I would like the consumer to select different file formats and if so could you please help me on setting that up too :S


Lastly will it automatically set up the directory folder out of the root and have a timed and maximum downloads so people cant download everything and abuse it too?


Thank you and hear from you soon

YES, you can use OSC to download different version types of digital products.


In a nut shell, here is the process:


1) Create the product you want to sell in the catalog.


2) Create the attributes for that product (ie: Music 1 is the product, attribute would be music1.wav and music1.zip)


3) Upload the files to the download folder (music1.wav and music1.zip)




That's is it. However, I would suggest you install a Download Controller to ensure proper downloading of these files. The default controller that comes with OSC is adequate but there are some advantages in using a Download Controller contribution.
