Add-On Type(s)



The Digital Commerce module allows you to sell items (both downloadable and tangible), without requiring the purchaser to first register as a member of your site.

The Digital Commerce module allows you to sell items (both downloadable and tangible), without requiring the purchaser to first register as a member of your site. If the item is digital (downloadable), the module will email download links to the customer upon successful “completed” payment via PayPal. If used with the LinkLocker module, you may specify security parameters for the generated links in the email templates. There is no need to setup IPN with paypal, as the module will handle responses by setting up and passing in a notify_url parameter. There is also no need to encrypt your buttons, as the system does not use typical PayPal buttons. The buttons post to a link created on your site that creates the POST to PayPal instead of passing the parameters via a URL or hidden form fields. The store admin can optionally be copied on emails sent to customers.

Because the system is based on the ExpressionEngine idea of weblogs, it is very easy to use. Simply add your store items to the Digital Commerce Store weblog, then display them as you would any other weblog with an {exp:weblog:entries} tag pair. For store functionality, use the {exp:digital_commerce:paypal} tag pair. The only required parameter for the digital commerce tag pair is the entry_id. We use this to get all of the information we’ll need for PayPal, such as item price, tax, shipping, etc. You can optionally specify an btn_dir parameter with this tag pair, which would be a directory containing images (besides the defaults) that you’d refer to use for PayPal image links.

You can also accept donations using the Digital Commerce module. Currency specified in the sitewide configuration is used. Success and Cancel URLs specified in sitewide config will be used unless passed in as success or cancel parameters.
