How do I sell downloadable files? (downloads)

Sales of downloadable files

Sell ​​files that the customer can download after payment. This feature makes it possible to sell files that the customer can download after payment. It can be software, documents, music, video, art, etc.

In the store's control panel, you can decide how many days it will take before the download link ends and how many times the ordered file can be downloaded.

The maximum space for files that the customer can download is 200 MB. With large amounts of files, it is possible to connect the files purchased in the store to a separate server (where your files are protected for public access).
