Ready to start selling your own digital products online? This short guide below will guide you through everything you need to know to get started selling your digital downloads to your audience.

1.) Create a new product or add to an existing product

Selling eBook

To get started using the digital downloads feature you first need to make sure you have a product created, and if not, go ahead and create one now. Let’s write a compelling title, and explain exactly what our customers will get if they purchase our product. Next, we’ll create a pricing plan (feel free to add additional plans as well) and set the price of our download.

2.) Upload your Digital Download file

Upload Download File

After you have your product text filled out, and pricing strategy nailed, it’s time to upload your file so you can deliver it to your customers after checkout. You can upload your file in the “Advanced Options” section of the product editor by clicking “Upload”.

Supported filetypes for digital downloads

Currently, we support most file types including audio, video, .zip, .pdf, .doc, .docx, and more. If you need to upload a different filetype and we’re missing it, just shoot us an email to support and we’ll happily add this for you.

3.) Select your file from the product builder

Select Download File

Now that your digital assets have been uploaded, simply select them from the drop-down “Select a download to deliver after the purchase”. This file will be sent to any customers who check out with any pricing plan on this form. If you need to send different downloads for various pricing plans, we recommend creating multiple products to handle this use-case.

4.) Save changes

Save your changes and you’re done! We’ll take care of all the heavy lifting from here on. Now, every time a customer makes a purchase from your payment link, your digital file will automatically be emailed to them along with a receipt. Make changes and update your files anytime you need to.

5.) Share and Promote your product

Share digital product

Now you’re ready to start promoting and sharing your digital downloads online. This is the most important step in this entire process. If you send out a weekly/monthly newsletter, or frequently post to social media, be sure to mention your product with a strong call to action. If you make most of your sales on your website, consider using one of our default embed options to make the checkout process for your customers as seamless as possible.

How to share and promote your digital download:

  • Share the link on Social Media
  • Promote the link in a single post
  • Add the link to your pricing page on your website
  • Embed the payment form directly onto a website page
  • Embed a button that triggers a payment form pop-up
  • Use with WordPress, Unbounce, and Instapage
  • Include in your email newsletter
