Easy Digital Downloads is a plugin I have been working on for about two months now. It is a plugin designed for making it possible, and exceptionally easy to sell digital downloads through your WordPress site. One of the main ideas behind the plugin is to provide a system that is only for digital downloads and does not also attempt to do 10,000 other tasks, like many of the e-commerce plugins available for WordPress. I’m excited to announce that Easy Digital Downloads has just had its first beta release and is ready for everyone to test it.

The plugin can be downloaded from its official website, Easy Digital Downloads.com, and you can read more about it there as well.

If you’re not quite sure what the plugin does, or if you’d just like a little demo video, check out the preview below:

The plugin is 100% free to download and use as much as you wish. If you have feature requests, suggestions, or bug reports, please read the official Development Blog post for the beta launch. It provides instructions on how to leave your feedback.

    Looks very promising!

      Thanks, Gordan!

    Suggested Feature:
    AWS S3 and CloudFront integration for the files to enable secure downloads from amazon strorage.

    • Pippin

      That is already available. The plugin only requires a URL to the files, and it can be anything, local or external.

    Hi Pippin,

    Thanks for building the plugin.

    Quick question – I am in the throes of finishing my website (still under construction but finally getting there!). Can we sell music downloads for sale with this plugin?


    • Pippin

      Yes, absolutely. Sometime soon in the future, I’m going to be building some music specific add-ons for the plugin that will make selling music even better. There are already several users selling music through EDD and it’s working very well for them.
