    Yes it is!

    Update the [edd_receipt] short code on the purchase confirmation page with products=”0″, like this:

    [edd_receipt products="0"]

    Thanks!

    What if I needed to have some products with a download, and some without a download? How would that work?

    Then you can have the {download_list} template tag in the purchase receipt, or link to a page with the [purchase_history] short code on it.

    Thanks for the reply! I think it would be great if we can specify no downloads when adding a new product, and it would not assign a download. Is there a place to add a feature request for that?

    In general that option doesn’t really make sense, considering the nature of the plugin. It is called Easy Digital Downloads after all 🙂

    You can post feature requests here: https://easydigitaldownloads.com/support/forum/feature-requests/

    What doesn’t make sense is install and configure another plugin to sell digital products associated with no downloads, when this one does a really great work. You might want to create it as an addon, it will be beneficial to many people.

    I understand that you don’t want to include physical products, which complicates the process. But digital products without downloads, that would be a great addition.

    It’s great to see a plugin author on the forums. Many of them do not reply. Keep up the great work!

    Oh definitely, I’m not saying the plugin doesn’t work well for that. We have a lot of users doing exactly what you’re describing. I just mean it doesn’t really make sense as a core feature.

    As an add-on it makes perfect sense.

    I’m interested in building this myself. I checked the developer documentation and there is nothing mentioned about creating addons (or I can’t find it).

    Where do you think I should start?

    Thanks, very helpful. To make sure I understand, extensions are separate wordpress plugins which require EDD to function properly. Is that correct?

    Where is the best place to ask developer-related questions? Here or Github or somewhere else?

    Correct. The Developer Forum is the best place to ask questions.

    Pippin, I found out that the latest version allows me to create downloads with no products associated, and on the purchase confirmation page, it will show “No downloads found”. That’s what I really need. Great addition!
