  • Upload your downloadable product file to the components/com_jcommerce/download folder as a zip file (using no spaces in the name). If you open your web server via FTP, and notice a zip file named under the download folder, then you can skip this step for the testing purposes.
  • If you have not generate a product in the back-end, then do so as you would normally for any product you sell in OSCommerce.
  • Click Catalog and then Product Attributes. Under “Product Options”, create a new option called “Download” or something that you and your customer will recognize.
  • In the same Product Attributes page, create a Option Value of “Windows” or “Mac” or whatever.
  • Still in the Product Attributes page, at the bottom of the page, you will find a drop down menu of each of your products. Find the product that you wish to offer as a download and select it (like the one you created in step 3).

  • Under Option Value, choose “Windows” or whatever you used in step 5 above.
  • Set your price for the product or leave blank or zero 0.
  • Skip the Prefix section.
  • Type in the exact name of the download file as it is saved in your downloads folder as you did in step 2 above. Remember, no spaces in the filename and include the .zip extention. Do not put anything like http:// or path before it. (For the convenience, you can download some contributions from OSCommerce to allow you to browser uploaded files).
  • Set the number of days the purchased download will be available to your customer.
  • Set the maximum amount of downloads tries you wish to grant to your customer. You should at the very least give your customer 2 tries, in case something happens to thier connection.
  • Finally, click the “insert” button at the far right.
  • Your product is now available for download.
