Downloads and tangible goods same store


Recommended Posts

Hello got Linda's download contribution.

Problem I have is that some of my products are downloadable and some are tangible goods (printed versions) with attributes set to handle this.


The tangible goods have shipping rates but of course the downloads have no shipping value.

If a customer adds a downloadable product and a tangible product to the basket the checkout cannot handle the calculation and adds the downloads product as a product weight.


What is the best way to configure the store to handle both ?


Separate categories for downloads and printed versions ? with downloads at zero weight and printed versions as a weight value.


Or is there a special secret way to do this that someone has done before ?

Since my site handles both CD-ROM ebooks as well as digital versions, I have found that it is far easier to have the tangible goods in a seperate category. This seems to work just fine when there are both digital and shippable(sp?) goods in the shopping cart at the same time.
