Bitcoin Digital Downloads is a complete solution that allows you to automate the delivery of digital products after your customers pay you using bitcoin. Bitcoin Digital Downloads can also be used as a bitcoin payment terminal allowing you to receive bitcoin payments for things like freelance or contract work, donations and more. Download links are encrypted to prevent unauthorized downloads and can also have an expiry time.
- Automatic delivery of digital products
- Allow download only after payment is confirmed
- Secure encrypted download links
- Link expiry time
- Multiple currencies support
- Per product or global email templates
- Per product or global pricing
- Mass upload using your FTP program
- Buyers only need an email address to receive the download link and any bitcoin wallet of their choosing, no need for any kind of registration
How does it work
1) Upload your digital products to the products folder using FTP. 2) For each product you can define via the admin dashboard, a custom email template, a download link expiration time and a price in bitcoin or in currencies such as USD, GBP, EUR, JPY, CAD, AUD among others. Bitcoin conversion is automatic. 3) In the admin area you can then generate the “buy now” link for the products you uploaded. 4) Since the “buy now” link is just a regular URL link, you can paste it anywhere such as in emails, in WordPress posts, on your site, site footer, forum signatures, facebook, twitter and other social media. Let everyone know that you accept bitcoin. 5) Customer clicks the link and gets redirected to the terminal page, then he enters the email where the download link will be sent and the script will generate a QR code for him to pay in bitcoin. 6) As soon as the customer pays and the transaction is seen in the bitcoin network, he will receive an encrypted download link via email.
Each product can have a custom email template or use a global default template. Templates can be in html or plain text format.
You can define price in bitcoin or normal currencies which get converted to bitcoin in real time using Blockchain.info’s feed. Currencies supported are: USD, JPY, CNY, SGD, HKD, CAD, NZD, AUD, CLP, GBP, DKK, SEK, ISK, CHF, BRL, EUR, RUB, PLN, THB, KRW, TWD.
