Can Webflow be used to sell downloads of very large files?

Hi folks,

I’m interested in using Webflow to create an ecommerce website that sells downloads of very large files (around 7GB in some cases). Is Webflow capable of this natively or will I need to use a third party service? How would one go about setting this up? Are there Webflow hosting plans which will cover massive files like this?

You can definitely host this file size on a OneDrive account or Amazon Web Services account and find some sort of code or third-party plugin that allows access to this product upon purchase.

Host the link and a password on OneDrive and then when somebody purchases your file- the email order invoice that gets sent to the purchaser can then have the information people can use to then go ahead and download it.

This is the first thing that came to mind.

@foxy You guys really do it all, jeez.

I’m definitely gonna be using you in the future.

Can you guys integrate with OneDrive as well? I have 5TB for free for life, so I’m using that to the max.

Hey @Lifestyledq.
With our Zapier integration, you should be able to setup your own digital product flow, connecting to the right OneDrive file depending on Foxy data (ex: product code) and then trigger an email to the customer with a link to the file.

Thanks,

Thanks for the replies guys. I’ll take a look at Foxy+AWS.

Foxy looks great, but for comparison purposes are there any alternatives that are worth checking out?

@foxy what do you consider the main benefits of Foxy over some of your competitors?
