To create a downloadable PDF in Shopify:

  1. Upload the file to Shopify by going to Settings > Files. Click Upload files and select your PDF.
  2. Copy the URL of the PDF. It should start with “https://cdn.shopify”
  3. Open the page you want to add the download link, create a link to this URL you just copied.
  4. Your link should now let a store visitor open your PDF.

If you want to force the user to download the file instead of it opening inside the browser, you need to use a third-party service like Dropbox (or Google Drive).
