What else is needed?

Here we have looked into the bare bones of creating this functionality, but there are still other features and aspects that we would need to implement, including:

  • Editing the create product functionality in the administration area
  • Editing the edit product functionality in the administration area, so that a standard product could be converted to a downloadable product, and vice versa
  • More security provisions, as discussed
  • Download logging, to ensure that customers are not making a purchase and then giving their login details to others, so they can access the files
  • In most instances, we would only want customers to make a single purchase of these products, as in most cases, duplicate purchases would be redundant
