I am very excited to say that the first Pro feature is now ready – Digital Downloads. With this add-on, you can sell the digital version of your images and make them available for download immediately after purchase.

Your downloadable files are saved in their own, separate folder from the images that are visible in your gallery. These images are not used by Sunshine to generate thumbnails because most shared servers cannot handle 10+MB images – your server will run out of memory and stop working.

Also note that download links will not be visible or work if an order is set to “Pending” or “Cancelled”. This is important for those who are allowing orders by check so users cannot download their images until you update the order status after you have received payment.

Check out the documentation on how to setup digital downloads with Sunshine Photo Cart. This add-on is available as of version 0.6.0.
