QuestionsHow do I offer free PDFs
asked 2 years ago

Hello ~

I have been uploading my PDFs on my site using WooCommerce. I would also like to post my PDFs that are available for free. Can I do this? If so, should I just enter $0.00 in the field?

Thanks so much for your time ~

You could add the products to woocommerce like any other product and set the price to $0 but for a user to download the free PDF he must go to checkout and complete the process in order to be able to download. And if he wants another free PDF he should it all over.

So if you don't want that there are 2 solutions that I can think off.

  1. You can use a plugin to give the capability of downloading files in woocommerce without checkout. https://el.wordpress.org/plugins/download-now-for-woocommerce/
  2. You can add the free PDF files outside the woocommerce and a user could go to a page to download free files. You can also create a landing page to promote the free files to grow your traffic
