Adding Downloadable products

At times, you may want to sell a digital product such as an image, audio file, or e-book. This can be easily accomplished in StoreMantis. To offer a downloadable product, you'll first have to upload the file within StoreMantis and then you'll need to link the file to a product.


Important! Remember to uncheck the "Requires Shipping" checkbox or your customers will be charged shipping fees by mistake.


Uploading Your Digital Product


  1. Log into your StoreMantis Dashboard
  2. Go to Catalog > Downloads
  3. Click Insert in the upper right corner

  4. Fill in the fields with a download name, Select the file to upload on your local computer, and type in the number of downloads allowed per user purchase

  5. Click Save


Linking the download file to a product


  1. Log into your StoreMantis Dashboard
  2. Go to Products
  3. Click Insert to create a new product or click Edit next to an existing product
  4. Click on the links tab

  5. Scroll towards the bottom of the page, go to the Downloads section and select the file you want to be made available on this product. To select the file, start typing the name of the file (the download you created earlier) and then select it from the drop down that appears.



    While still editing this product, click on the Data tab and scroll down to the section called Weight. Enter a weight of 0 (zero) in the field. This tells StoreMantis it is a downloadable product
  6. Click on Save in the upper left corner


Trial products

If you want to offer your customers a trial of your software, there are a few different routes you can take.


Prerequisites

As StoreMantis cannot simply modify your downloadable products to offer some sort of trial, you will need to have one of the following to offer as the trial:

  • Two versions of your software; One that is fully unlocked that you will sell and one that only works as a trial
  • Offer a single product for download and sell the license key either within the software, or through another product on your site


Adding the trial product

If you are offering the trial product as a secondary item in your store, you can simply add it just as you would any other downloadable product, and sent the price to be free.

You could also place some sort of additional download link to the product within your main product page which would allow you to have a single page for both the trial product as well as the paid product.
