Captain Swallow

After looking at the few available options for digital download sales (CDs & singles as it happens)(including third-party sites) and after some frustration with two WP plugins that were clunky and didn’t really work as advertised, I found THIS. Simple to use, options for sales pages, or shortcodes on any page, buttons or text…exactly what is necessary for digital sales!

John Lofthouse

Easy Digital Downloads is a wonderful plugin. It’s lightweight, functional and intuitive. Absolutely love the plugin. The developers have done a spectacular job with it! I’ve used this plugin for multiple e-commerce projects and plan to continue using it in the future. I’ve used the Authorize.net extension as well, and found it easy to integrate and use.

As a platform built on WordPress, EDD is licensed under GPLv3. To go a step further, EDD is also an open-source software with a dedicated community of developers and contributors.
