EDD Favorites


This plugin requires both EDD Wish Lists & Easy Digital Downloads. It will NOT function without them.

EDD Favorites is a plugin for EDD Wish Lists that allows your customers to “favorite” downloads. With 1 click (and another click to remove) the download is instantly added to the user’s favorites.

What’s the difference between EDD Wish Lists and EDD Favorites?

With EDD Wish lists, you click the “add to wish list” link and choose a list (or create a new one) from the modal window. It also works with variable pricing. EDD favorites is for quickly adding/removing downloads to a single list with 1 click. It doesn’t support variable pricing, meaning you cannot add a specific price to the favorites list, instead it adds the entire download.
