Easy Digital Downloads
[resolved] Can this work for freebies too (without requiring a coupon code)? (5 posts)

    Can this be used as a way to deliver digital downloads for which I don't want to charge, without requiring a coupon code or some other workaround? In other words, can I just set the price to $0.00 and then there's no payment gateway or anything like that?

    Also, in each user's purchase history, does it allow them to redownload in the future? If yes, can you set an expiration date of how long the download link lasts (e.g. 10 minutes or 30 days)?

    Yes, you can have free downloads. When the price is set to 0, all payment gateways are bypassed. In order to download the free file, users only have to fill out their name and email. After they complete the checkout (without being charged), the download will be available in their download history.

    Yes, the download history permits users to redownload items, though there is an option to disable it.

    No, you cannot limit how long the download is available after "purchasing".

    it would be great to limit Download Link by:
    Expiring Time, Max.
    Number of Times Downloaded and
    Number Max. Number of IPs.

    also the ability for Admin to manually or automatically with short-code generate a link to send free download by any of the following manually entered individual emails, group emails, registered users/members or txt file or csv files, etc.

    All of those features are planned. We're releasing new versions every week (almost), so it shouldn't be too long before we see something for those.
