Yes. OpenCart does support the sale of digital goods that can be downloaded after payment.

Customer's can download their products from their account page after the order has reached the "Complete" stage. You can change this in the administration under "System->Settings" (under the "Options" tab). The entries you will be looking for are "Order Status" and "Download Order Status".

If you set the "Download Order Status" to the same value as "Order Status" (the default is "Pending"), then your customers can download the product straight away. Otherwise, digital products will be available when the "Order Status" reaches the stage where products can be downloaded. For example, "Order Status" is set to "Pending", "Download Order Status" is set to "Complete". When the "Order Status" reaches the "Complete" stage (after payment has been received), the product will then be available for download.

In the administration under "Catalog->Downloads", you can upload your downloadable files and set the number of times each can be downloaded. This download can then be linked to the product under the "Data" tab in the product entry area.

The downloadable files are kept in the "downloads" directory.

NOTE: When a downloadable file is uploaded to your server through "Catalog->Downloads", an extra "token" is added as an extension to the original file so that people can't download the product by entering it's filename as part of a URL.

no at this point depending on what you want the mod to do you have to edit core files. Hopefully in the not too distant future there will be some thought and changes implemented to include override classes and hooks to minimize the necessity.

I have been reading this post and followed most of it which is good.

I wanted to know how the customer downloads the Download?

I can see when I FTP into the website in the downloads folder the download with the token string on the end of the extention. But how would I know the token string is, if I was just logged into the Admin?

Surely there has to be a way under the order status to notify the customer the order has been approved/completed and then the download link sent to the customer automatically somehow?

Your comments most appreciated.

Thanks
Anthony

you don't need to know what the token is and the customer never will either. once the order is set to complete (or whatever status you set for download) then the download will be available in the customers account area.

Sounds like you are using a very early release of 1.4.7. Get the latest version of 1.4.7 and replace your file with the one from the zip at:

If product is download by the user and same product bought again then even after completion of the new order... new download is not alloted to the user.. why?

Please have a look at attached image, in this only 1 order is visible out of 3, is this some bug or I have done something wrong?
Hi there

I hope I understood your question properly. I went through the same process, I tested it out but realized the product was downloaded, and had a 0 download, which means I was unable to re-purchase the same product. However, I noticed the minimum quantity in Admin > Catalog > Products > Data, was set to 1. So I changed it to a higher number, and was able to re-purchase the item using the same account.

What I want to know is a recommended download number for the user, just in case the buyer's internet crash, etc? The downfall of increasing the downloads is; the buyer can either resell, leech them out, and of course lie about the downloads if I set it to 1 download. I just need to be prepared.

Is there a way to know if the buyer has downloaded the products?

What are your thoughts?

Thanks

Well all it takes is for them to download it once to resell it, and they can't leech it out no matter how many downloads you give them, because the customer never actually receives a direct link to the file.

unfortunately no at this point there is not. It would be a nice feature though.

True! I see your point, so no matter what, there is no prevention on having the buyer to resell. I guess it is impossible unless they get caught ;D.

honestly I don't know. I haven't dug through the download code in depth with respect to how it works on an account/order basis.

I see your point now, I realized I made a mistake about the increase, instead it was a minimum quantity the buyer has to buy :-[ . I have no choice but increase the downloads for the buyer

Hey Ash

Try increasing the quantity to the highest number there is. With a lot of testing, I figured that each time you download a file, the count goes backward e.g. 999999999 to 999999998, and you can increase the total downloads allowed for buyers in case of a internet crash, etc. By the time it reaches 0, then your a Trillionaire, then close the shop ;D .

It is the same even if you do set it to 3 or 5 downloads, but that's not what I'm talking about here.

1. You set the quantity unlimited: Admin > Catalog > Products > Quantity
2. Set a minimum number of total downloads: Admin > Catalog > Downloads (I set my one to 3, so the buyer has 3 chances to download the same file without any dramas, it doesn't matter if they download 1 file, they can still leech it out, like the old days of downloading FREE files ;D )

Yep, and the backup plan is to get them to sign up another account if they want the same product ;D . I have no hassles with my one since I'm only selling audio files (mp3s), so I can't see the point for the buyer to buy the same audio, over and over, when they can copy it??

What exactly are you using it for?

when you create the download in the admin you choose how many times the user can download.

Eh? Of course there is. It's been there since the start. It's right on the products tab when you edit the order
