Easy Digital Downloads – Version 1.0.5

Selling digitally downloadable products was never so easy with WordPress until the introduction of this ecommerce plugin Easy Digital Downloads. This plugin does not boast of fancy features and keeps its functions simple and to the point.

You can yet download the new version of the plugin from the WordPress plugin repository and your WordPress dashboards. The most important update is the new variable pricing system. This new option gives you the ability to set multiple price variations for a single digital product, much like you would have variations for physical products.

The variable pricing system is very simple to use, just check the box that says: “Check this to enable variable pricing”. Once checked, the variable pricing option will appear. You can add as many pricing options as you want.


Another of the major updates is the introduction of free downloads. Any download set with a price of zero, will be considered free. When a user checks out, if the total amount in their shopping cart is 0, they will bypass all payment gateways and only be asked to enter their name and email.
