Sell all kinds of digital goods with SendOwl

You can sell videos, ebooks, photos, crochet 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.

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 customer service

Although we've invested a lot of time and attention in making sure our app is easy to use, we want to be on hand in case you have any questions. You're always welcome to get in touch with questions or comments – and we promise to get back to you quickly. SendOwl is our day job (and our night job!) so you won't need to wait for hours until we can bunk off from work. We also promise to leave off the geek talk – unless you start it!

More than just an app

SendOwl is more than just a Shopify app – we run an entire ecommerce platform at SendOwl.com. As an established company, we care about providing a service that is professional, secure and easy to use, and have more than five years' experience of doing just that. We're not going to disappear overnight or decide not to invest in our app any longer because we've moved on to something else. We're in this for the long term, and we hope you are too.

SendOwl - sell digital files reviews (78)


We love this app. Our store sells Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator files, and SendOwl is able to handle them with no problem. I would definitely recommend SendOwl for all of your digital products.


Great app, easy to use. Excellent and responsive customer service!


Excellent app, especially the pdf stamping feature!


Brilliant app, was the main reason I moved from Bigcommerce to Shopify. The stamping and securing of PDF's and speed and ease of delivery are fantastic features.


I use SendOwl to deliver tutorials in PDF format, and it works perfectly. It was easy to set up, and I've been really happy with the automation.


We sell film downloads and SendOwl has cut our customer service down to next to nothing. Best app we've used for digital delivery by far. Customer support has been amazing. Paul replies really fast and is always helpful.


We have been using SendOwl for 4 months now and we are impressed at how well it works. Integration with Shopify was easy and intuitive and we have now made our 400 products available as PDF downloads which our customers certainly appreciate. Paul and George (SendOwl support) were responsive with questions and even set up a custom plan as we do not use a lot of storage but have a lot of SKUs.
I love to ability to send stamped PDF's to customers as well as issue free orders when needed.


Ease of delivery and functionality for the end customer is of the utmost value for us, and SendOwl provides that. SendOwld has most robust options and most streamlined delivery options for customers, and has been our sole digital delivery app for us for quite some time for delivery of .zip files to end customers. George, the owner, and his team have provided immediate support and answers throughout our years of using the app, and look forward to more!


Good: compared to what's out there it's pretty good.

Bad: when selling videos be warned that the thumbnail your customers will see when streaming is the very first image of your video. Sendowl have said they won't be changing this... How hard can it be to give us the choice of selecting a thumbnail for a video??

Bad 2: when selling videos be warned that the expand icon in the top right hand corner of the video when streaming is white. So if the background of your video is also white your customers won't be able to see the icon and won't expand... Again, seriously? How hard can our be to change the icon to a more customer friendly one??? Sendowl have said they won't be changing it...

So overall the customer service had been very poor... Shame because the app has potential but it needs to be at the top of its game to be the best and it still has some way to go before it gets there...


The support was for me a horrible experience. Never had the correct answers to my questions.
Moreover if you have apps like receiptful already installed this will be complicated to setup.
