Setting Up the Payment For a Download

Back to User Guides

The CM Download Manager Payments Add-on adds EDD and WooCommerce to Download Manager

When a user pays for a download, he/she is granted access to that download forever.

Note: By default, Download Manager has MicroPayments support, which is explained at the end of this article.


Setting Up the Payment 

Once the  CM Download Manager Payments add-on is installed, a new option will be available when creating or editing a download, as highlighted:

It allows you to set the desired price for each download individually. The currency is determined by the payment platform's settings. Learn more about the payment platforms and how to choose between them in the  dedicated guide.

If no price is set, the download will be free.
