Digital Product Downloads
We are so excited to announce today a brand new feature that is sure to get some people excited and out of their chairs. (Feel free to send us a picture if you do this) The PhotoBiz team has put their heads together to create a unique solution to the digital download feature many have requested over the years. This is a self hosted solution that doesn’t take away from your monthly photo plan and gives you much more flexibility!
One thing that is important to note is we do not host the files. We are allowing you to host any file, anywhere and provide a link to the downloadable version of it. There are many solutions out there both free and paid such as your own FTP hosting, Carbonite, Dropbox.com and Yousendit.com. Once you upload your file to a hosting solution, you can simply take the link and paste it in the appropriate section as shown below.
Along with providing a link, we have added a couple of features for you to control how long this file is out there and available for download. You are able to designate the number of days that the file is available for download and also the number of times each file can be downloaded per order.
Once your client has purchased the product, they will be given a “masked” link to download it within their receipt that is automatically generated and sent to them. This masked link is what allows us to help you control how long your product is available and how many times it can be downloaded.
