Hi everyone.

Is there any way I can upload a PDF that people can download from my site? Or alternative is there any websites where I can put the PDF and then people can go there and download it via a direct link?

Cheers

Martin

hej Martin, 

You can upload and share your pdf to your Shopify store without using external websites.

Here's a simple solution:

Hope that helps :)

Hello

I use Shopify's Digital Downloads app to allow my customers to download a gift card after purchase. I've found it easy to use and it was free too!

Yes clear, we can upload files into Files but then we get ugly cdn links.

How to get pretty links then?

Hi @Martin_Andersen, I made a video tutorial for you on how to insert link for PDF file download. Hope this helps!

Dear @AskQuesty uploading a file and create a button link to it. It was of course already possible and already clear. More than that I see you use UGLY and LONG cdn links. So you confirm there is no answer from Shopify to have pretty links related to uploaded files into Shopify

Aloha,

 

In the beginning of the video it cuts out, but it sounds like you say something like "Download the pdf button to your Shopify site". It's very unclear as to what to do. Can you please help?

Kimberly,

Please redo the video on the above. The sound quality is not good at all. Also, I want to make "free content" available but would like to collect the visitor's email address. Is this possible?

Can the same method be applied to zip files?
