The plugin doesn’t have any option to add extra fields to the squeeze page. You will have to custom code it in. Will you still need the extra fields if you get the manual checkout workaround? See option 1 from the following post:August 8, 2012 at 7:01 am #23733
The manual checkout option would satisfy my needs for collecting more information from customer before downloading a free document but it’s not working with the Buy Now button.
“Redirect to Manual Checkout For Zero Amount Purchase” doesn’t work when I offer a digital download (with 0.00 price) via a “Buy Now” button. — the customer still gets taken to PayPal (strangely, even when I have deactivated PayPal in the payment gateway options and only left “Manual checkout” active.
The redirect does work with the normal “add to cart” checkout but this adds an additional click step and displays the price of 0.00 which is awkward.
I would like to have a landing page for customers who respond to a mailing where they see a FREE digital download. Upon clicking on “download”, they are taken to the manual check out page where they enter their contact information. Upon submitting the check out form, they are taken to a thank you page where they can download document.
Is this possible?
Really liking your plugin!August 9, 2012 at 1:18 am #23734
Yes, it is possible to do what you are after. Use the technique mentioned in the following post to link the button to go directly to the manual checkout page:
Lets say your manual checkout page of eStore is at the following URL:
Then simply link the buy button to the following URL:
When a visitor clicks on this link, he will go directly to the manual checkout page with Item 1 in the cart already so he can just fill out the form and checkout.August 9, 2012 at 3:59 pm #23735
Thank you, this works perfectly!
The only other thing I would like to do is to have the thank you page (after the customer submits the manual checkout form) contain a link to instantly download the digital product.
I read on the forum that you can do this with PayPal but I would like to do it directly after manual checkout. Is this possible?August 10, 2012 at 12:18 am #23736IvyMember
In the Payment Gateway settings you can find the following option “Send Product Download Links in the Email” under manual checkout.
Then follow the instructions here for the thank you page display:
Note: There are other post payment processes you can enable for manual checkout.August 10, 2012 at 6:37 am #23737
Thanks, adding the [wp_eStore_display_transaction_result] to the “thank you” page did the trick.
If someone visits the manual checkout page directly (without having first visited a product page and clicked on the buy now text link) and fills in their information, they still get sent an email and taken to the thank you page.
Is there any way of validating before submit on the manual checkout form that there is actually a product selected?August 11, 2012 at 2:09 am #23738
I have added a check in the plugin to prevent users from being able to go to the manual checkout page and submit the form without any item in the cart. I have sent you an update to your email. please check it out.August 11, 2012 at 3:13 pm #23739
Thanks, I updated and it works great!August 22, 2012 at 5:32 pm #23740edsoehnelMember
I am offering a free download via the squeeze page option, but I want to collect one more field of data. The manual checkout option would work, but how can I customize that extra data field and add it to the checkout form?August 23, 2012 at 2:46 am #23741
The manual checkout form has an extra field called “Additional Comment” that you should be utilize and collect this data.
You can change the “Additional Comment” label to anything you prefer using this technique:March 6, 2019 at 12:04 am #23742c2lMember
I’ve read through the above but don’t quite follow.
I have multiple pages where people can enter their name and email address in a squeeze form to receive a free download, which works perfectly.
I now want to also capture their Country as well as name and email.
How can I modify the form so that the 3 fields must be entered, preferably with a drop-down Country list?
This website ONLY offers free downloads so no other checkout methods/gateways are used.

That will need to be handled as a custom job:
