I'm giving a free ebook to my visitors using the Digital Downloads app. However, it doesn't collect email address before giving the download.
Link: The ebook link is at the bottom of the blog post.
Clicking on the link just takes you to a direct download page. The only other way is to treat it like an actual product, but then it asks for address and everything, which I don't want. Please help!!
You should connect it to your mailing list,
you could either display a subscribe form popup when they click the download link.
or the easier solution is to replace the download link with a subscribe form form with text above it like "Get the free eBook now!"
and setup your mailing list to send them the download link when they subscribe.
i think you will find apps for this in the store but i'm not sure, but it can be custom coded in the theme directly.
We are trying to do the same. Collect email and give a download link via the email they provide.
So fat the best way is to create an email subscription link and send an auto-response email with the download link.
Are there any good apps that can do the same without the hassle of setting up via an email client?
