Magento 2 Downloadable Product

Magento 2 is the latest upgrade for Magento Commerce, an open-source eCommerce platform that provides multichannel solutions for its partners and developers. This version offers a more flexible platform than its prede-cessor. Its new user-friendly Admin panel enables easier customizations that allow you to save time in managing tasks; and its step-by-step product creation tool makes setting up products faster and increases productivity.

Magento 2 allows you to upload both your simple products and down-loadable products. Setting up a downloadable product – digital product that can be sent in a file such as game, eBook, music, etc – is made simpler and easier by following these steps:

Step 1: Open the configuration page for the downloadable product.

  • Login to your account and select the Products tab from the left panel of your Dashboard.
  • Magento downloadable product

  • Select the Catalog option. Once the Catalog page loads up, click the Add Product button and select the Downloadable Product option from the drop-down menu.

  • Once you’re redirected to the New Product form. Fill in the required fields to complete your product’s basic information: Choose its name, SKU, and price; decide whether it’s taxable or not; add an image for it; enter the quantity in stock; choose which category it belongs; and add a description.

Step 3: Upload your file.

  • Proceed to the Advanced Settings section and fill up the Downloadable Information section.
  • Enter the title of your downloadable products list. It represents the entirety of your downloadable links if you have more than one; it can be the title of your album, eBook series, etc.
  • Select whether these links can be purchased separately. If you select Yes, you can set the price and download limit for each link.
  • Click the Add New Link button to open a new row or section. Enter the specific title of this link and its price if it can be purchased separately. You have the two options for your file: you can click the Browse Files button to attach the file directly; or choose URL and insert the link where your file can be found.
  • Choose whether it’s shareable, which enables clients to share the link with others without logging in; or only for a single user.
  • Finally, decide whether you want it limited or unlimited. Enter the maximum number of downloads or tick in the Unlimited box below.

Note. To add a new file, just click on the Add New Link button again and repeat steps.

Step 4: Add free samples.

  • If you want to give a free sample of your product, add a new link from the Samples section below the Links section.
  • Enter the title and attach the sample’s file. You can add a sample for each product by adding another link.

Step 5: Save your updated configurations.

  • Double check the details you’ve entered and the files you’ve upload-ed. Click on the Websites button and tick in the box of your main Ma-gento 2 store. Make sure that the product’s status is online.
  • Finally, click the Save button and wait for the page to refresh itself before leaving it. Go to your Magento 2 store front-end and check your samples to confirm if the links are running well.

That’s it. You now have a downloadable product.
