Creating And Downloading the Downloadable products in Opencart

0
At times, you may want to sell a digital product such as an image, audio file, or e-book. This can be easily accomplished in OpenCart. To offer a downloadable product, you’ll first have to upload the file within OpenCart and then you’ll need to link the file to a product.
Important! Remember to uncheck the “Requires Shipping” checkbox or your customers will be charged shipping fees by mistake.
