I’ve installed WooCommerce.
I want to set up a WordPress / WooCommerce site where customers pay to see online training videos but I’m not sure how to go about it? Ideally, once customers have paid via Paypal, they’ll get a link to view the movie they’ve chosen. Returning customers will be able to click on ‘My account’ and see easy links to all the movies they’ve purchased before.
Is this something that can be done with WooCommerce or with an extra WooCommerce extension?
Here’s the test I’ve done with just one movie so far. It almost works! Please let me know if there is a better way?
I uploaded a movie to YouTube set as ‘unlisted’. Then I placed the YouTube code on a WordPress page. I used a plugin called ‘Exclude Pages from Navigation’ to hide the page. Then I created a WooCommerce Product page. My hope was that I could place a link to the hidden WordPress/YouTube page that customers would see once they’d paid. Unfortunately, when I put the link in the ‘Purchase Note’ section – it shows but can’t be clicked on. Customer could copy and paste – but that’s not as good. Then I tried ‘File path’. Unfortunately this only seems to work for downloadable items – not just as a link. Otherwise, this would be ideal because the download links appear in a list on the ‘My Account’ page just as I wanted.
So that’s where I am. So near but yet so far. Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
