Downloadable products: using external url (not file path) as variation (2 posts)

    I'm selling a downloadable/virtual product, and it has some variations. All of them, except one, are hosted in my own site, normally. However, I need that one variation be hosted in an external url, something as in the external/affiliated product option, but as a variation. There's a way to do it?

    (A solution what I'm trying is upload a php file that, when opened, redirects to the external link. But I'm not too sure if this is the right thing to do.)

    PHP, Javascript or htaccess redirect seems like a reasonable move ... but I think you can just use the (external) URL in the product definition, anyway... the field there says "File path/URL" [upload a file] so it seems that just a standard URL would work. Try it!
