I’m selling digital products (.zip files) and there are three licenses (standard, premium and exclusive) and each is a different price. What i want is for every product to have these price variations in a single drop down and an associated digital product variation so that depending on what license is chosen the corresponding URL is provided for download and corresponding price is added to the cart.
What i’m doing now is this:
Under ‘Product Variation 1’:
Under ‘Digital Product Variation’:
However when I display a product on a page I see two drop downs one for the product variation and one for the digital product variation. There may be something I’m missing, but is there a way to consolidate these two drop downs into one?
Any help is appreciated.

Do not use product variation 1 field. Only use the digital variation (you can specify the price as well as the downloadable file for the variation.
Use $10 as your price because the default variation that will be selected is the “Standard” version then add the following in your digital variation:
If someone selects premium it will add $10 to the base price and make it $20. If someone selects “Exclusive” then it will add $20 to the base price and make it $30 total.March 20, 2011 at 11:05 pm #30414emceesquared08Member
Your suggestion worked nicely. Thank you very much!May 5, 2011 at 8:14 pm #30415
I would like to have downloadable movies. I have two different file formats and two different sizes. I want the customer to first select the Size, an then select the File Format. Can I have two different drop-downs in digital Product Variations , or do I need to have one drop-down with four options?
Also, what is the order of the steps? Do I create the Digital Variation first, or generate the encrypted link first?
In the digital variations, what do I put as the file path in the code? The actual file path, or the encrypted link?
Finally, these videos are just for paid members, so I will be hiding the menu from the free members. Can I also have a second drop-down menu containing still images that the free members can access?
Thank you.May 6, 2011 at 1:12 am #30416
There is only one digital variation option. So in your case you will need to use 4 options. You never create the encrypted links. You simply setup your variations explained in the following documentation and the plugin will generate the encrypted links of the correct file based on what variation the customer chooses.
In the variation field you use the link of the actual files.May 6, 2011 at 1:26 am #30417
I read the instructions multiple times, but I cannot figure this out. Here is what I have in the Digital Product Variation field. Is this correct?
Video Size and Format|16×9 .MOV::Yellow Orange Squares (16×9 .MOV) – http:/mydomain/myunecryptedlink.zip|16×9 .WMV::http:/mydomain/myunecryptedlink2.zip|4×3 .MOV::http:/mydomain/myunecryptedlink3.zip|4×3 .WMV::http:/mydomain/myunecryptedlink4.zip
Now, how do I get the the dropdown button to appear on my page? Here is the code I am using:
But it doesn’t have a dropdown. And since the only product is a membership, once they are paid members they have access to all the files. So I don’t want to have a product display with a price. Thanks.May 6, 2011 at 5:27 am #30418
Ah you are using it with the download now type buttons. Not actual sell buttons (add to cart or buy now).
Let me look into it some more in the code.May 6, 2011 at 6:23 am #30419
Okay updated the plugin to handle the digital variation with the download now type buttons. Please get a new build of the plugin from here and test it out:
Note: make sure you enter a URL in the “Product Download URL” field (any URL is fine). The plugin checks that field to determine if a product is a digital product or not. So if you completely leave that field empty it will treat this product as a physical product and the variations won’t get triggered.May 6, 2011 at 4:51 pm #30420
That is cool! IT WORKS!
So now I have the video variations working (which are only available to paid members, but hidden from the free members), but I also want to have another set of variations that ARE available for the Free members.
Can I create another, separate, drop-down?May 7, 2011 at 12:27 am #30421
You create another product and use that for your free members.
