Overview:Maintaining downloadables is work. It takes time and effort to update your digital products, whether these are videos, music, software or reading material. You need to charge for this so that your business is sustainable - but not necessarily full price. If don't want to charge full price, but just want to have a fixed upgrade fee, this mod can help.
Zen Cart Digital Product Upgrade does this for you. It allows you to create a coupon called "UPGRADE" that permits anyone to buy a downloadable product they have purchased before, at a fixed price.
- Back up everything! Try this in a test environment prior to installing it on a live shop.
- Unzip the file you have received.
- Create a coupon with the Coupon Name and Coupon Code "UPGRADE". Set Uses Per Coupon and Uses Per Customer to blank. Set the Coupon Amount to the final price you wish to use for upgrades. (For me, it's "10" for $10.)
- Apply the fix from this post.
