How Sky Pilot works

After checkout, your customer will be directed to a page within your store to download files and/or stream videos associated with their purchase. They will also receive a link to this page via email.

At any point a customer can login to their account in your store to access files or videos they have purchased. This page shows an organizable list of files and/or a playlist of all streaming videos.

Files/Videos can be organized into folders, allowing you to create easy-to-navigate delivery of many digital items.

All delivery pages are hosted within your Shopify store. It is completely customizable, with access to both basic settings and full code customization.

You can attach multiple files or videos to a product. Files/videos can be attached to physical products without affecting fulfillment status. This is important for merchants selling digital content as an add-on to physical products.

We installed this app to deliver our digital products -- ebooks, echarts, eposters -- to customers of our music education shop (www.roedyblack.com). We were looking for a fast, seamless, trouble-free digital product delivery solution. We have been using Sky Pilot for a couple of months now, and our customers have downloaded thousands of files. Sky Pilot has more than lived up to our requirements and high expectations. The few times we have had questions, Sky Pilot support has always been prompt and thorough. Based on our experience, we strongly recommend this app.

Ok, maybe I was wrong. I thought the SkyPilot and ChargeRabbit are the same companies, but I got now (so quick as never before) an answer about that, referring to my review. They will do the support for ChargeRabbit too, so Andrew told me. That does not change anything to us that we could not use it for our business plan for selling distributions. Sky Pilot may be can helpful for downloads, but there is the problem with the big movie storage we need, so the monthly costs go up. So my proposal to Sky Pilot is to connect other of the many paywall sellers that are available now.

1st review:
We lost a couple of days to find out that it is not working for our business plan. We want to sell language learning movies as a subscription. That's it.
You have no Shopify cart, it will be bypassed directly to ChargeRabbit and the registration too.
Also, I get the feeling that SkyPilot and ChargeRabbit work together, there is the same support and it is the same delay. When you set up a question, it takes minimum 1 day. So we lost a lot of days, waiting for answers - most of them are not found in any description.
Why they have parted SkyPilot and ChargeRabbit? Maybe to take 2 times money.
So we change to a system that really delivers movies.
