Plugin Updates – Easy Digital Downloads

Selling Digital Downloads Is Made Easy With Easy Digital Downloads

If you are online with a business of any sort then the objective is likely yo earn some form of income through the process. Hey, let’s face it, all businesses need to earn some form of income or they likely will never succeed.

The Easy Digital Downloads plugin for WordPress can help you get started in the right direction. This was one of the first shopping cart plugins we ever used to sell digital products online and have been using it for years.

This plugin will allow you to get started selling digital download files on any WordPress site. A couple of features that this plugin offers include:

  1. Paypal integration
  2. multiple item shopping cart
  3. Historical Data: payments, purchase history and download logs
  4. Customizable sales receipts
  5. Can handle bundled products.
  6. and much more…

We love to use this plugin behind membership access sites. Particularly anything where the site offers a free membership access. This can then be used to implement easily manageable sale items such as pdfs, mp3, or graphics packages to name a few.

The EDD team just released their latest update today, 12/10/2014, so we wanted to keep you up to date. Below is also going to be a year in review of the updates they have made since the beginning of 2014.

Over the last year they have made leaps and bounds with hundreds of upgrade and security fixes. They also have a large team of 10 developers who have been working on this project. They do not strive to make this an “all-in-one” shopping cart that you might use for a drop-shipping website or a site with tons of non-digital items for sale. They have however made it one of the nicest and easiest shopping cart plugins to use for WordPress and digital media sales.
