Downloadable Product

A downloadable product can be anything that you can deliver as a file, such as an eBook, music, video and etc.
Because the actual download is not available until after the purchase, you can provide samples, such as an excerpt from a book, a clip from an audio file, or a trailer from a video that the customer can try before purchasing the product. The files that you make available for download can be either uploaded to your server or from a different server.
