EDD - Creating/editing a Payment Product (Simple Method)


Creating/Editing a Payment "Product" In Easy Digital Downloads

Back to User Guides

The payments for various actions in the Payments add-ons are connected with the virtual products created in the payment system.

There are two ways of creating the products allowing for the payments: the simple way, by doing it from inside the add-on, and the advanced way, by doing it from EDD. We will cover the simple method in this documentation.  Read about the advanced method.

Choose your product: 

Note on EDD Product Fields

Newly created Downloads are simple products with a single price ( Easy Digital Downloads allows for variable pricing, but it's not supported), which you can edit from the menu of Easy Digital Downloads → DownloadsAll Downloads. While editing please remember that the only fields which will be taken into account are the Title and the Price.


Method for Business DirectoryExpert Directory, and Product Directory

Navigate to the Admin Dashboard → Plugin Name → Settings. The example below is from Product Directory:

Click on the Payment Labels tab.

Here you can see the Easy Digital Downloads Product Association section near each section where it applies:

  • payments for Pay-per-view plans
  • payments for adding new products.
  • payments for claiming products.
  • payments for renewing products.

Below: This is how each section allowing to create the EDD product looks:

In the section you have two options:

  • Selecting the existing product - in this case, you just need to select it from the list.
  • Creating a new product (described below)

All you need to do add a product you need to fill two text fields: Name (this should be something informative for the users so they know what they're paying for) and the Price (in USD).

Then click on the Create new EDD Product. The page will refresh and the new product will be automatically selected in the box.


Method for Registration Payments
