How to Sell Digital Products & Downloads with WooCommerce

Selling digital products is an excellent opportunity for store owners, bloggers, and other content creators alike. 

Digital downloads — like eBooks, music files, images, sewing patterns, and fonts — work well as standalone purchases, or as add-ons to physical products or services. For example, if you sell music courses online, you might also sell digital sheet music. Or if you crochet baby toys, you could sell downloadable patterns for those who also enjoy crafting.

The best part is that they help you generate revenue without having to worry about things like inventory, shipping, and storage. Once you set up your digital products, there’s very little maintenance involved.

And if you already have a WordPress site, getting started is simple and straightforward. Let’s take a look at how to sell digital downloads with WooCommerce, along with some best WordPress security practices.

Whether you have an eCommerce store, write about your favorite topics online, or promote services on your site, backups are absolutely critical.

Set Up a Simple Payment Button with Jetpack

Set up an Online Payment System With a Simple Payment Button

For many business owners, the incentive for creating a business website comes down to one thing: selling products or services. Typically, this is accomplished through business marketing; however, selling a product or service directly through your website can help as well. For this reason, it’s important to have an online payment system in place.

When many people think of online payment systems, the first thing that comes to mind is a full-blown ecommerce store. While this is certainly a popular option for large businesses, this type of solution can prove to be a bit overwhelming for smaller (or newer) businesses to develop themselves.

Fortunately, Jetpack developed a solution to this problem called the Simple Payment Button.

The Simple Payment Button helps you embed a payment system into your site without needing to set up a full store. This allows your customers to submit their payments with the click of a button, and you’ll receive each payment via your PayPal account.

Unsure of how to get started? Let’s review how to set up an efficient online payment system for your business using the Simple Payment Button.
