This past week WordPress released a new update 3.5. One of the new features includes a Media Library upgrade. This article describes the features in detail. I’ll be reviewing this in detail in a later post, once I get a chance to focus on this post.

Digital Downloads Pt. 2 – 5 steps to selling PDF downloads from a WordPress Website

Tonight we’re exploring the  steps to selling Digital Downloads on my websites.

Step 1: Upload a PDF file to WordPress website. This following video is with WP 2.7 version, but is still relevant for 3.4.2 version. Watch the video here

Step 2: Next install Easy Digital Downloads. Go to your dashboard — plugins —install new and search for Easy Digital Downloads. Install.

Step 3: On the Easy Digital Downloads website there are quite a few tutorials. This plugin seems very robust and easy to use. After following the Installation and Settings setup directions on the website, I followed the directions and installed My First Download.

Step 4: Set up your download in test mode, then you can test it without being charged.

Step 5: Setting up the shopping cart. This is my next step to explore.

There are a number of extensions, free and premium. I’m still exploring these. Also found a Digital Store theme created by them that I am going to explore down the road a bit, after I test the plugin with my first PDF.  Stay tuned to updates as I explore this new area of selling digital products online.
