Thank you for contacting us!

Yes, it does! You can easily upload and sale any digital content in your Ecwid store. Learn about managing e-goods in Ecwid here:

If I understand your question correctly you want to sell both versions of a book paper and digital. You can easily create a product with two options—a printed book and ebook, upload a PDF as I answered in your first question and start selling.

Please mind, after customer buys this book, the PDF file will be dispatched regardless of which option your customer chooses.

If you want to prevent that, I can suggest you two workarounds.

The first and the easiest way to do that is creating individual products for a paper book and its digital copy.

The second method is to keep one product with two options (ebook and printed version) and to write a script which is, based on order information, will send a link to the digital copy. Please note, in this case you need to store all digital copies on your own server.

This development will use our Instant Order Notifications API: to send a notification about an order to your script. After that your script will be able to get detailed information about the order via our Order API:

Absolutely. Check out Ecwid API page: and its Upload Product File section: for more details.

In order allow your customers to use different filters for search is creating product filters powered by our Faceted Search API. You can learn about it here:
This is quite possibly the most helpful and informative response I have EVER received on ANY forum. Thank you so much. I look forward to becoming a business partner with ECWID and developing my store. We should launch in mid-May.
