1. At the moment, if a store owner doesn't get a payment immediately (i.e. so called "off-line payment", for example "Wire Transfer") , orders always get the "Queued" status. The "Accepted" status means that you've already got the payments, that's why you need to set this status manually.
2. However I agree that in many cases it'd be useful to set the Accepted status automatically, if order total is zero. Unfortunately Ecwid doesn't have this feature yet, so could you submit your suggestion at ideas.ecwid.com
As a workaround I suggest creating a custom script. So if your customer wants to download teasers, he/she enters his/her email, presses the "Download" button and gets the files. So you will be able to track downloads by saved emails.
