Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Digital Download hitting maximum for customers at first try

  • Resolved sarahmoorelocal


    I have a new digital download (a large PDF 11MB, my first and the only one on my site). I have the download limit set to 5 with a 30 day expiry. Some customers have downloaded the PDF fine but others have told me the download didn’t start automatically and then when they clicked the link again it said they had reached maximum downloads.
    When I reset the number of downloads on their order, it works fine.

    Any thoughts?

    @sarahmoorelocal if you create a new downloadable product from scratch, does it have the same issue or not?

    If not, then it could be there is some corrupted information tied to that product. In that scenario I recommend editing the product, changing some values and then saving the changes. Once that’s done you can change back any information to the way you want and save again.

    If this also happens on the new product, I’d recommend starting with a quick conflict test. We have a guide on how to test for conflicts here:
