Sell all kinds of digital goods with SendOwl


You can sell videos, ebooks, photos, patterns, audio, software, podcasts or any other type of file with SendOwl. Simply upload the file to our servers, choose the Shopify product to associate it with and we'll take care of the rest.

The best choice for entrepreneurs who are serious about selling


SendOwl is more than just an app – we run an entire ecommerce platform at SendOwl.com. This means that our Shopify app offers everything you need not just to deliver your digital products but to actually sell more. Having a free delivery app will get you so far. But when you want to scale up quickly, increase conversions and inspire great customer feedback then you'll need a powerful product that specialises in digital delivery.

Customer satisfaction from fast downloads


Because we charge for our app we can invest in making it better. Instead of delivering from cheap hosting like our free competitor, we deliver downloads from a network of servers around the world. This means faster and more reliable downloads, resulting in greater customer satisfaction and fewer support requests. "I was using a different setup through another company and constantly had issues with customers not receiving their downloads right away. But this works perfectly!" Customer review from Karmak.

Great customer service


If you have a question, then we're on hand to answer you as quickly as possible. You'll be speaking straight to the people who have developed SendOwl not some general customer support person. So you'll get a helpful answer immediately, no matter how technical or specialist your query.

Instant, automated and secure delivery


Whenever your products are sold we'll automatically deliver a secure, time-limited download link to your customer. It doesn't matter if you sell 1 or 10,000 products a day - everything is automated and there's no daily management required. Oh and did we mention the downloads were instant? No waiting for 60 seconds when using this app. For added security, we also offer PDF stamping and license keys for software or other products that require a unique code.

Quick setup


Installing the app only takes a few minutes. Simply click the 'install app' button in the top right of this page, enter some basic account details on our site and we'll have you up and running in no time. We'll update your orders in Shopify when we deliver download links so you know exactly when delivery took place. And if you did want more information on an order you can click through straight from your Shopify order page to the SendOwl order summary.

Easy to use and reliable


We've made sure that SendOwl is super easy to use, whether you're creating a product, enabling PDF stamping or deciding if you want to send out your download links via a separate email or included in the Shopify order email. And you don't have to just take our word for it. In our recent 2015 customer survey, many of our Shopify sellers commented on how we were "Easy to use and very simple and effective" and "24/365 working with no problems". We also have one of the most reliable and stable apps in the industry, supported by our team of developers. And we intend to keep it that way!

Fully customisable


SendOwl is completely customisable, from changing the download pages to match your store branding to how long the download links are valid for. Change the configuration as much as you like to provide a branded experience for your customers.

Great app, works very well and customers find it easy to use as well (huge plus.) I love the control it gives me over the files. Being an artist, I do wish they allowed more than 100 files under the less-expensive plan though.

FYI to the developers: there is a compatibility issue with the Coopt app (where the customer gets an instant 5% refund if they share their purchase on Facebook, and SendOwl saw "refund = a cancellation of the download" - so that customers then could not download what they just purchased) but I don't know which software is to blame for it: SendOwl, Coopt, or Shopify itself. Thankfully I was able to find another solution instead of Coopt anyway.

Very good for digital files. Had no complaints and it’s very easy for customers to access!

It looks good but it doesn't allow multiple file download.

A poor experience thus far. Complimentary orders are processed, but not received. Were it an isolated issue, it might be chalked up to the recipient; but the problem has occurred three separate times (out of five attempts).

We use Send Owl to sell digital curriculum books, and it works like a champ! We used to get customer calls all the time before switching to Send Owl, and now we rarely hear a hoot! Set up was really easy and we have been hands off since.

Choosing a digital download app was the thing putting me off launching my store for the longest time. Am glad I chose SendOwl. So easy to set up and has worked without a hitch. Great, friendly service as well......

These people are highly competent and know what they are doing. The app works perfectly well and their customer service really cares about you as their client even when Shopify is putting some impediments for selling service/digital content right now.

Very recommended.

I was using a different Digital File Delivery App for around 12 months before switching to SendOwl.
The switch cost me around $5 more per month, but the additional features it gave me was incredible. It's a very versatile App, very reliable, and extremely professional. You can customize the file download page which is awesome, and the ability to assign License Keys is also a big plus for me.
Would definately recommend

I sell digital downloads and it's so easy to do with Sendowl. All I had to do was upload my products. Sendowl sends the customer their download automatically and I haven't had any problems with that.

My favourite feature is the ability to add a customer to a specific mailing list after they have purchased a specific product. It's the best! In my Woocommerce store I had to pay for Zapier and an extension to do that and it was extremely difficult to do. The Sendowl method is so easy to use.

I highly recommend Sendowl!
