Easy Digital Downloads Free Downloads
Enhancements to support for free products have been added to Easy Digital Downloads as part of the Free Downloads for Easy Digital Downloads update. When customers download a free file from Free Downloads, rather than taking them through the typical checkout procedure, a modal window will be sent to the user asking for their email address. Free Downloads will not send users through the regular checkout process. After inputting their information, the user will either be sent to the success page or a custom page of your choosing, or the user’s file will be automatically downloaded, depending on the configuration that you have chosen for the website.
The download mode also provides support for the first and last name of the user, user registration, and custom text, in addition to the requirement that an email address be verified prior to the delivery of data.
Free Downloads incorporates comprehensive purchase monitoring as well as automatic connection with a wide variety of our mailing list extensions. When a free download is done, Free Downloads will immediately support subscribing emails to the service if the mailing list extension, such as MailChimp, enables automatically subscribing customers based on what item(s) are purchased.
