Start selling digital content with Filemonk


Last Update vor 5 Monaten

Filemonk allows you to sell digital content - be it music, video, books, software or podcasts - by attaching files to your Shopify products and sending download links for these files to your customers automatically when they purchase any of these products from your store.

Here's how you can get started -


Prepare your files

Get your content ready! Make sure they are labelled correctly, have the right extensions and are packaged based on how you want to sell them. It's a good idea to have it prepared in a separate folder, so that uploading it is easy.

Install app

Install Filemonk from Shopify App Store.

Upload & attach your files
Click Products or Files in the left menu bar to upload your files. Follow this guide to learn more about the available options.

Customize email template & settings
Read through this guide to enable email notifications, customize the template and set up other advanced controls like sending emails only when the order is fully paid.

Don't want customers to wait on an email? You can also enable the Order status widget to let customers access their files immediately after checkout.

Customize Order Download page
Customize the Order Download page with a thank you message, and set up download limits to control how many times or until when customers can access files.

And finally, learn more about how you can manage your digital orders.

Test it out
Make sure your digital file delivery is working as expected by placing a test order on your store containing the products and checking your inbox for an email containing the download link. :)

That's it! If you run into any issues, please reach out to me via the Support widget or at [email protected]
