Simple Shipping

Easy Digital Downloads is built specifically for selling digital products, but some people love the plugin so much that they want to use it for selling physical products as well. For this reason, we have built the Simple Shipping extension that adds some simple shipping features to Easy Digital Downloads.


This extension is designed primarily for those people selling mostly digital products (as EDD is designed to do) with a few physical products on the site, perhaps DVD versions of your video downloads, or perhaps CDs of downloadable audio files. Perhaps even t-shirts to complement your digital brand.

With this extension you can easily collect shipping info from your customers during checkout, set shipping rates for domestic and international orders, and mark payments as being shipped or not.

Shipping can be enabled on a per-product basis and can even be enabled on a per-price basis for products with multiple price options.

To make shipping orders even easier, a new option to export all unshipped orders is also added to the Downloads > Reports > Export screen.

Running a marketplace? Simple Shipping includes complete support for our Frontend Submissions extension.

Requires Easy Digital Downloads v1.9 or Later.
