Hi all,

I am very new to opencart and I have a few questions that I can't seem to find the answers to anywhere.

1. Is there a way to set the store up to sell digital downalods like website templates, ebooks, etc...?

2. I design websites for clients, am I allowed to use the opencart program to create an onlien store for my clients? And modify the look, feel, and setting to their needs? I am new to open source and I have no problem giving something back in the form of a donation. I just want to make sure its ok to use this wonderful program for my clients.

I would appreciate any help anyone can give. I am more less a designer and hire developers for outsourcing my design to create the final end project. This program is the first I came across that is user friendly and easy to navigate through. I can also set up the users for my clients and allow them only some functions which give them certain abilities only. Again, I have no problem donating some money to help out the cause, but I would like to know if I am allowed to use it for my clients.

Thank you all for your help.

Steve

1. Yes
a. Admin->Catalog->Downloads. Insert a new file
b. Admin->Catalog->Product. Insert/Edit a product
On the "Links" tab, choose the download entry you made in step a
c. In System->Settings, on the option tab, Set "Allow downloads" to Yes and the Download status to whatever state you set your payment order status to be as that is the "final" status (ususally Completed)

2. Yes. It is opensource GPL.. you can use it anyway you like. Even rebrand it to "SuperCart" if you want.

It works great, except all orders with digital downloads are getting cancelled. Any ideas?

I tried all the settings. I looked through everything, and when I go through the payment process because I have 2 pay pal accounts, I use one to buy and one to get paid and the process goes through and when I go to my account afterwards, and click on downloads, there is nothing there. I go to paypment status and both orders I tried comes back as cancelled..
