Orbisius CyberStore allows you to setup your e-store and start selling digital products such as software, e-books, pdf, reports in minutes.
It adds a simple Buy Now button which sends the customer to PayPal to complete the payment and after that he/she is returned to your site.
Users of the former Orbisius DigiShop plugin:
Please backup your database and uploads from /wp-content/uploads/digishop before updating to the new version. Just in case.
You will have to re-add the products and re-insert the shortcode because this plugin is not compatible with the previous code.
Benefits / Features
- Easy to use
- Downloads links are served from the main domain e.g. yourdomain.com/?orb_cyber_store_dl=f47c137
- When download link is clicked the download dialog is shown i.e. the file does not show within the browser (forced download)
- Handles PayPal Live and Sandbox (at the same time - your clients will be directed to PayPal but your transactions will go to the Sandbox, use Sandbox IP Address)
- Functionality to enable/disable products (when a product is disabled the buy now link will not be shown and the file can't be downloaded even with the download link)
- Customize the text for the successful and unsuccessful transaction
- In case of a failed transaction the email is sent to the admin so he can handle the failed transaction manually
- There is a dollar sign button in edit page/post that allows you to choose a product and this will insert the correct shortcode which will be later replaced by Buy Now button
- Protection against multiple calls made from PayPal IPN which paypal makes to notify the site owner for the transaction.
- Download expires after 48 hours
- Download limits: maximum 3 per order
- Allows functionality the form submission to go in a new window
- Optional shipping address requirement (both available as a global setting and per individual product)
- Supports a secure HOP URL. The main idea of the Secure HOP URL is to redirect to another URL. The script must redirect to an address passed by the "r" parameter.
Having this kind of redirect is very useful because when your visitors are about to return to your site PayPal checks and if the returning URL is a non-ssl link then it puts a warning with makes the user experience less than optimal. Orbisius CyberStore includes a sample redirect script that you can install on your secure site.
- Supports free products (since v1.2.3) for download and adds a Download button instead of Buy Now button
- Since v2.0.0 supports variable products e.g. a digital product with multiple licenses, product notes
When this attribute is set in the shortcode will make the plugin show the price above the buy now button.
Why this is important? Because if you enter the price on a page and later go and modify the product price of the product
you may forgot to update the page. That's not good to for the users.
currency_prefix="$" : currency sign shown before the price, it defaults to $ for CAD, USD, AUD
currency_suffix="USD" : text shown after the price
price_label="Price" : text shown before the price
price_suffix="(one time)" text appended after the currency suffix
[orb_cyber_store id="123" render_price="1" price_suffix_label="(one time)"]
This example this will display
Price: $249.95 USD (one time)
If you want the price to be shown for all products insert this in your functions.php of the current theme
add_filter('orb_cyber_store_ext_filter_render_price', '__return_true', 10);
The plugin has several cool Extensions
- PayPal Micropayments - allows you to switch to a PayPal Micropayments account and save a lot in transaction fees.
- Change Language of PayPal Checkout Page
- HTML Email + Richtext editor for order email
- Change Email From
- Style Order Form
