  • I’m new to this plugin.

    – Do I need to create all new pages for purchase, checkout, confirmation, etc?

    Currently, I have a WooCommerce store setup. Will the digital products appear there?
    Or where do I upload digital products and where will the checkout be displayed?

    Thank you!!

    What are examples of a sample product?

    Is it the Download ID upload file for customer automatic downloads? I wanted to upload an ebook file.

    Do I need to add & save the product page to my category menu (toolbar)? Since this product page needs to be visible, how does that work?

    THanks again! I haven’t been able to try the shortcode yet because the upload is not working.

    I tried a standard pdf file (100.9 mb) for an ebook and it shows the file is too large. It’s only 10 pages. What do I do? The standard pdf was the smallest size available on the design site I am using…

    Also, how are payment taken? And, how do I receive payments?

    Hi @capri914

    Thanks for your response.

    For your query,

    1) I tried a standard pdf file (100.9 mb) for an ebook and it shows the file is too large….
    Ans – Your ebook size is quite large 100 MB. The upload process depends on server configuration. Please navigate to WordPress Media > Add New. At there you can see the maximum upload size.

    Please refer below screenshot

    You can contact your hosting provider to increase the upload file limit OR As it is a large file you can upload this file within WP-CONTENT dir via FTP and put it file path to EDD product download file section.

    2) How are payment taken? And, how do I receive payments?
    Ans – EDD has some built-in payment gateways like PayPal and etc. You can check some other Payment Gateways from their site like Stripe and etc.

    Go to Plugin Settings > Payment tab. Activate your desired payment gateway and configure it.

    For example if you configure PayPal then the amount of purchase from your site will be transferred to your PayPal account and PayPal will send you money to your linked bank account.
