Downloadable products can be anything that you can deliver as a file, such as an eBook, music, video, software application, or an update.
Downloadable products can be configured to require that the customer log in to an account to receive the link, or can be sent by email and shared with others.

In this tab, you can upload the downloadable file for the product.
