    This is the best plugin I came across with. Now, my associate installed it, translate it to Spanish and so far so good. The only thing is that after the purchase goes thru (with the test payment) it send me to the purchase confirmation page, where I place a thank you note, but it doesn’t give me the option to download the files…

    What I am doing wrong???

    This is the purchase confirmation page:

    Do I have to place a code in here for that or somewhere else?

    I look thru your videos and links for this information, but I haven’t find any info about it. Please excuse my ignorance but I really couldn’t find the answer. Can you point to the answer or place it here?

    Thank you

    Oh my Dear, you did a very good job on this plugin. I had a look and come to the conclusion that I will use it for my web site. It is simple and clear to what I am looking to do. Just one question if any file I can edit to use customer field when creating product? Or Exist and I did not see it or you may consider it in any coming version? May look as a stupid question, sorry for asking, I have some creativity and would like to use the plugin with that feature for many more… Btw definitively you make it real, I can use it as it is! Thanks, go a head!


  4. Hello,

    I’m VERY new to WordPress and am looking to transition my site over. I have found a theme I think will be great for what I need, but I’m not sure if EDD is compatible with it. I am specifically looking at EDD because of the PDF Stamper. I don’t know if just providing a link to the theme is enough information, but I hope so… Can you please let me know if this theme will work with EDD? Thanks in advance!



  5. Hi

    I have purchased the plugin. From where do I get the Merchant ID?
