Good news everyone! We have added new features to our online shop that make it even easier to start selling products online. In this blog post, I want to introduce the most exciting ones.
Sell digital products
One of the most requested features for the Online Shop is the option to sell digital products. That’s why we are delighted to tell that this is now possible.
Digital products can be anything, from graphic designs, apps, knitting patterns, music files, and ebooks.
The advantage of selling digital products is that you don’t need to keep them in stock and you don’t need to arrange for shipping. This keeps investment costs down, making it much cheaper to get started. Once created, a digital product can be copied endlessly, for no additional costs.
Secure on our servers
Everything is managed from within the Online Shop, so you don’t need to install any external apps to make it work. Your digital products are securely stored in a hidden location on your own web space. Simply select “Digital” when adding a new product to your online store and upload the file(s) that contain it.
Shipping is automatically disabled when you add a digital product. Instead, your customers receive an email with a link where they can download it.

Add the shopping cart to all pages
You can now add the shopping cart to all pages of your site. That way, if customers navigate to another page of your website, they can still see and click the cart to proceed to check out. After all, you don’t want them to forget the items already in their basket.
You can adjust the color, background, and placement of the cart, to make it blend perfectly with the style of your website. Check our guide on how to implement it in your site: Add the Online Shop shopping cart to all pages.
Stay informed about new updates
Finally, I want to mention our “What’s new” feature. We are excited about every improvement or feature that we add, and we wanted a way to share this with you. That’s why we added notifications to the Online Shop dashboard. That way you will always be informed about changes and can get the most out of the Online Shop.
