Ecommerce - Digital Products?

#1

Hello!

I saw in the landing page that in round 2 “Sell digital and downloadable products” will be possible.

Any idea when round 2 approx. is? Trying to set up a new store and wondering if it’s worth to wait.

Alternatively, any workaround? Would it work if I treat it as a physical product where I gather the payment and manually send the goodie over via email? (Besides the delay on replying) For this I’m assuming I can customize the text in the email to let them know I’ll get back to them in 24h I guess.

Thoughts, please? :pray:

I’m also SUPER keen to sell Digital Products!

In fact, it’s the only type of product I’ll sell.

I haven’t looked yet, but PERHAPS you could set up a CMS Collection of uploaded PDF files and then use Variable Tags in your eCommerce emails to populate links for download.

Alternatively, a link out to other file formats via Dropbox could work too.

Oh dang, I just assumed that you could sell digital products too. I was planning to use Webflow’s ecommerce platform to launch a digital product in the coming weeks, a no-go is no bueno!

I have the same question! Would love a timeline on this. Been thinking of starting a site with Webflow, but am holding back for digital/downloadable products.

We’re now in April 2019. Just wondering if we have a timeline or anything on this yet?

Hi all.
Foxy allows you to sell digital products (and any other type of product) in Webflow with no programming experience required: https://www.foxy.io/webflow + https://www.foxy.io/digital-products

Feel free to reach out and we can help you get started, hop on on a phone/Skype call, or anything else.

Thanks,
Josh

I too am keen to know when this might happen. Be really good to have some Webflow staff member give us an approximate date just so I can potential clients and sell as an additional service.

Anyone?
Thanks

I’m not sure what you mean here? Are you looking for advice on marketing digital products? Or looking for ways to sell them through webflow?

@sarahfrison I am looking to sell digital products through Webflow, but the e-commerce feature doesn’t actually allow that yet, only physical products. I was asking when that “coming soon” (previously it said “round 2”) will happen since it’s been quite a while since the release already

whoops @saravssantiago. I meant to reply to the last person who commented on your post. Their comment was pretty vague. I used the wrong reply button.

For what it’s worth, I’m using Ejunkie to sell digital downloads. Nothing against Foxy! They work great as well but I needed VAT options Foxy doesn’t have yet. It’s super easy to set up and only costs $5 a month.
The product pages aren’t live yet so I can’t say anything about user experience etc with Ejunkie. Other than that, very :ok_hand: .

other e-commerce and shopping carts are available :wink:
