Digital Downloads reviews (95)


Wonderful! Perfect for selling my stock illustrations. And free! I hope there's further development on it in the long run, to make managing large numbers of files easier, but otherwise it's great right now (and I have several hundred files to manage).


I agree 100% with Fabledo, having the download link appear right after the sale would be absolutely necessary. It is currently holding me back from using Shopify as our ecommerce solution.


So.. huge thumbs up for finally making Shopify NOT dependant on third parties to sell digital downloads.
However, this *NEEDS* to display the download link at the checkout page. Without it, it's no use.

Sending a link via e-mail is too clunky... it won't pass for okayish among clients used to big and neat modern websites.

Emails can get lost, or delayed etc.. nuh-uh. Make it display the link on checkout and I'll immediately start using this.


There's a few obvious bugs, but it works well enough in the majority of cases. I've encountered a bug where if the entire order isn't fulfilled and is marked as partial (digital line item(s) mixed with physical items that need to be shipped) the download link won't get sent until those physical items have shipped and I've been having to send out links manually.

Also, when an item is deleted from the store, it doesn't get deleted properly from Delivery, and gives a 500 error when you click on it in Delivery's backend.

Not sure if there's a better place to report further bugs for this app.


Installed and tested with a free download on my site. Works great! Will be interesting to see if the app costs anything when it's out of beta as it looks like files are stored on the app's site. Like that product updates are automatically emailed too.
