Support » Plugin: WordPress Simple PayPal Shopping Cart » Delivery of Digital Product

  • Resolved LeonieAlaimo


    I have set up product using the shortcode that specifies a download link for a digital product. I have enabled PayPal’s Instant Payment Notification.

    I tested a purchase and received an email from PayPal which stated
    Thank you for your purchase! You ordered the following item(s):
    Self Hypnosis x 1 – $19.99
    but there was no download link included.

    Do I have to have “Use PayPal Profile Based Shipping” checked for the download link to show in the “Thank You” email from PayPal, even though there is no shipping charge?

    He LeonieAlaimo, please read the following URL

    Kind regards

    Hello mbrsolution
    Thanks for your reply. I had already checked out the video you sent the link to.

    I have listed the product on the website like this:
    [wp_cart_button name=”Self Hypnosis” price=”19.99″ file_url=”″]
    (XXX used for security)

    Shop on website:

    Customer has enabled IPN in PayPal.
    We have allowed permission on the download through Amazon Web Services.

    We have tested the purchase again. Customer is receiving an email from PayPal to say she has purchased, but there is no link to download the product.

    Customer Email from PayPal
    Dear Gwendoline Pasin
    >> Thank you for your purchase! You ordered the following item(s):
    >> Self Hypnosis x 1 – $19.99

    I want to confirm one thing on the WP Paypal Shopping Cart Options page:

    Do I have to “check” Use PayPal Profile Based Shipping in order for PayPal to send the link to the customer? (even thought there is no shipping charge) – or is there something else there that has to be checked?

    Looking forward to having this sorted out. Thanks for your help.

    He LeonieAlaimo, unfortunately the plugin only allows you to sell digital media files within the website.

    To sell digital media from S3 amazon requires integration into the plugin. To do that you need to upgrade to the pro plugin.

    It will only work if your clients moves the digital media file to their server”Website”.

    Please read the following URL to learn more about the difference between the two plugins in regards to integration with Amazon servers.

    Kind regards

    Hello mbrsolution.
    My customer has purchased the upgrade WP eStore. I’ve installed it and added the product and the link according to your videos.

    The product url is

    for “bucket” I’ve put the name of the bucket from Amazon S3
    there is no folder (the items are straight into the bucket)
    then for the object I’ve put the link that amazon gives for the product which is
    therefore the product url is

    I hope this makes sense. Anyway it is not working. The customer purchased a product and received this link in the email:
    Learn Self Hypnosis –

    Should I put the product into the link:


    like this:
    the object name just being the object and not the link that is provided by Amazon S3?
    I have put no “folder” as there is none.

    Thanks for your help.
