Digital Downloads reviews (40)


Thus far I have no issues with this app. I think there could be improvements with expiration of files and this is a longer term issue if a store gets really big. People will pass around the files and then the store's concept will fail.

I hope you add updates to this with all the chatter about this :)

Great product though!


This app has two major drawbacks:

1. You cannot set download links to expire after a set amount of time. This is bad.

2. Customers cannot access download links from their account page.

Both of these issues seem like obvious features, and I can't understand why they aren't included.


Great app for customer downloads.


This app is perfect for our store because we deal solely with digital files. It's easy to use too.


Great app for use with downloads, awesome!


Excellent. This app is great for selling software and offer services.


This is a good app and I would rate it 5 stars if it wouldn't mark a product as fulfilled if "requires shipping" is checked. I have books that have 3 options: digital, physical, or both. I let customers add the digital for a fraction of the cost of buying both separately and it's been a great upsell for me.

Problem is that if I have Shopify auto fulfill the "both" order it marks the entire line item as fulfilled and thus the entire order and risks that order not being fulfilled.

I don't want to create several different products that are visible to customers and shopify does not allow hidden products or products with no category to be added to a bundle.

I did contact shopify and they said I had 2 options: fulfull all orders manually or give customers a 100% discount code for the digital product. Both options are a hassle and I'm still looking for a good solution.

As a side note to a below comments, I have received zero complaints about being able to download the file from the link provided, and had no problem figuring out how to set the download for a product.


We love this app. so glad we found it. It is super easy to use.


Would get 5 stars easily if it could do the following:
* Allow users to get download link when they login to the store. It makes no sense how they can get tracking for their physical items through their account but cannot get a link to their digital download.
* Update fulfillment fields with link to download. This will allow anyone using the API to get and display the download link to customers.


Nice app for digital content downloads and eBooks.
