Got a quick question: I own a domain from iPage.com how would I uses another web hosting site? Hoping for any answer or 2. My 2nd question... Hi folks..

I've noticed that, with my store, I could (if I wanted to) sell downloadable products on my site..

OK, I've created a "storeownload" folder in my directory..

I also notice that, in my admin, I can configure expiry days and limit the number of downloads..

Now....How does the downloadable thing work?.

Do they get an email with a link to the download after purchasing?.

Explain in simple terms pleeeez...I'm a newbie!..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..

I tested it, but it didnt work..

In configure.php my place for storing my downloadable produts is 'download/' which I assume is the 'download' folder..

I noticed that there is a file called unreal.zip in that folder so I typed unreal.zip in the product attributes section of a product in my catalogue that I chose at random..

I tested it by making a purchase, but it didn't work..

Am I doing something wrong????..

Log into osCommerce as a customer and look at your orders..

There should be a link allowing you to download the product.

When you click it...
