Sell Digital Products With Gridbox Store App

Sell Digital Products With Gridbox Store App

Today the Gridbox once again shows that it is more than just a page builder. Say hello to the Gridbox Website Builder 2.10.5 that comes with a new product type. Now with the Store App, you can sell not only physical products but digital ones as well. Don't keep your digital work - sell them. Just upload the file and voila you're already selling digital goods!


With the new product type in Gridbox Store App, you can easily sell any digital goods. What are digital goods? Anything that has no physical form, for example, music, web elements, ebooks, audiobooks, guides, recipes, templates, or any artistic creations. In the Gridbox Store App, you can add digital products in absolutely any format.


Adding Digital Products

The digital products in the Store App are added in the usual way. In the Gridbox dashboard, by clicking on the “Add New Item” button, you will be prompted to select a product type - digital or physical.



After filling in the main product fields, just upload a file - what could be easier?!


Configuring Download Link

In the Store App, you can set up a download link for a product using the following options:

  • Download Link Expires - sets the lifetime of the download link (hours, days, months, years). The link to the file will automatically disappear after the period you have set.
  • Maximum Downloads - sets a download limit. This is the number of times a customer can download a file.



Downloading Digital Products

The Gridbox Store App provides a simple and very easy solution for your store visitors to add digital products to their carts and go to the Checkout page in the same manner as if it were usual products. After placing the successful order, your customers will receive an email with the link to download the product.
