In this session, we demonstrate how to create a product in WP eStore that has both physical and downloadable digital products.
Rick: Okay so the next thing I’m going to do here is I’m going to configure something that I’ve talked about doing once upon a time in one of the ecommerce webinars but we never actually got around to doing it. And that is to create a product that has both a physical component to it and also downloadable electronic components. And we’re going to do that again with Marty’s site here. Right now, she’s got a book that she’s selling and what she wants to do is she want to put a limit time. She wants to sell this book and she wants to include some you know, bonus gifts to go along with the book. And so what we’re going to do here is create the products to do that.
And so we’re going to come over to WP eStore and the first thing we do is look at Manage Products. We really only have one product in the store at the moment and that’s the book. It’s this book right here and if we look at it, it’s a physical book. It doesn’t have any digital content details or anything like that.
So what we’re going to do then, we’ve got this book, now we’re going to create the products that we want to bundle with the book and then we will create the products for the bundle. And so what we’re going to do is come back over here to Manage Products and we are going to create a new product. The product’s actually going to be a free product but the product name will be… what is the product name? It’s something about stopping procrastination, as I recall. 10 Steps to Kiss Procrastination Goodbye. The product price is 0.00. Okay, under Additional Products, we’re not going to even come up with a product desription or anything like that. All we’re going to do here is come down to digital content details and we’re going to give it a specific product URL or put the URL of the product in here which means the first thing we need to do actually is upload the product to the site.
So if we come over to the Media Library, we’ll upload this PDF file first, add new, select file. Get out of my Dropbox and it’s 10 Steps to Kiss Procrastination Goodbye. And then we’re also going to… and we’re going to also add new and we’re going to add to the audio because we have an mp3 format audio. So we’ll select the file and it is… where did it go here… Kiss Procrastination Goodbye mp3. So we’re going to upload that. Oh, it’s too large so… since it’s too larger, we are going to have to use a different tool. But while we’re at this anyway, we’re going to grab this… the Media Library and we’ll grab the URL of that… of this book or of this PDF and we’ll stick it inside of the… we’ll stick it inside of our product. So our… scroll down here, our digital product URL is there and then we want to come down to product specific instructions for the buyer and we will add here… let’s see, “You will be… You will receive an email with a download link for this free gift.”
Okay and that’s good. We can go ahead and hit save product. And then we’re going to create a brand new product and that new product is going to be based on this product. So we’ll copy the product details from product ID 2 and we will… audio. And then our digital content details are going to be different here and this is where… and then we’re going to put the URL of the video or of the audio here in this section. And we’re going to go ahead and save that product as well.
And then the next thing we’re going to do is we’re going to create the bundled product. And so the bundled product is going to be a copy of product ID 1 and… except that we’re going to call it bundled or bundle. And then under digital content details, we put the product IDs so 2 and 3 in this section here and hit save. And then what we’re going to do is come back over and take a look at our main settings here. Settings… wrong set of settings. We’re going to look at our WP eStore settings and we’re going to look at our general settings and then scroll down to our emails. And there is one more… oh, here we go. Actually, we don’t really need to send them an additional email because this actually is going to give it to them. Any items to be shipped will be processed as soon as possible. Okay so we don’t actually have to make any changes here.
So then all we have to do is come back over to our page, come back over to our book page, really and then change the product from product ID 1 to product ID 4. And so WP eStore add to cart 4 and hit update. And now when somebody clicks the purchase here, they will… in their confirmation email, they will receive download links for those additional products.
