I’m planning to start my own online-shop where I can sell digital goods. Buyers should be able to download their purchases right after they paid via paypal, just like here on the envato marketplaces.
Taking a look at the current e-commerce bundle, I’m asking myself if they would work for such a kind of marketplace or only for a “real goods” shop. Also, what system would be the way to go for this job? Can wordpress handle this? Maybe there’s a good theme/template for this already?
I’m thankful for some hints in the right direction.
Obviously you need this: https://easydigitaldownloads.com/
Hi OriginalEXE, thank you for your message. I know that plugin and had a look at it before, but it felt more like a compromise for wordpress users than the obvious way to go.
Have you some experience with this and can you recommend it? Can users have their own accounts and download their purchases from their profile?
Well for me as a WP developer this is more than obvious way to go. If I can achieve something with CMS I am familiar with, then I’ll go for it, definitely give it a chance.
Yes users can have their accounts and redownload their purchases, EDD is very versatile and you have many extensions available for it. Not to mention the amazing support they provide.
Main author is Pippin, the most amazing plugin developer I know of, you can’t be in better hands. Check features: https://easydigitaldownloads.com/edd-features/ and extensions: https://easydigitaldownloads.com/extensions/
Thank you guys, I will then go with EDD.
@greenline: Great find, but I actually don’t want to start a marketplace with contributors, I only want to sell on my own. But it can coem in handy if I want to take down the envato network
Can you recommend some themes that work with EDD?I’ve only found this one: http://themeforest.net/item/restored-wp-ecommerce-for-easy-digital-downloads/2348807 And this one seems to not work with EDD but does the same thing? http://themeforest.net/item/downloadshop-sell-digital-goods-easily-wp-theme/1931812
edit: hah, 1000 posts!
If you hold out for about a week have something for this! Not saying anything else
