As of last week, we owned and developed three extensions for Easy Digital Downloads, an e-commerce solution for WordPress. Things have now changed, and EDD has acquired one of those extensions. Read on to find out why.

Selling both physical and digital products online via an eCommerce platform on WordPress is relatively easy. In fact, we have shared with you in the past how to go about setting up shop using the popular WooCommerce plugin, how to boost the functionality of your shop with this exhaustive list of free WooCommerce plugins, and have even shown you how to make your shop multilingual to reach a wider audience.
But what if you only want to sell digital items in your eCommerce shop?
Well, today I am going to show you how to do just that using the Easy Digital Downloads plugin.
EDD Bookings provides a complete booking system for EDD that allows you to schedule appointments, meetings, consultations and any other calendar and time based events. Meanwhile, FES provides a full-featured marketplace extension. Combine the two and you get a powerful tool with which store owners can operate multi-vendor marketplaces with bookings.
Last week we released a major update for the EDD Bookings plugin – version 2.0.
The plugin had a complete overhaul on the back-end, with many improvements and fixes made on the front-end too. It was major undertaking that has produced a great extension for any existing or potential Easy Digital Downloads customers.
If you’ve heard of or make use of e-commerce with WordPress in any way you must have come across Easy Digital Downloads at one point or another. It’s the best (and free) plugin to sell digital downloads on your WordPress site in an easy and organised way.
Besides the basic plugin that you can download for free from the WordPress plugin repository, there are also a number of premium extensions you can purchase from the EDD website. One of the latest extensions to be released is a project undertaken by our own team; Add to Cart Popup.
Today we announce the release of the EDD Bookings add-on. This plugin adds a booking system to your WordPress site, allowing customers to book and pay for appointments, meetings, consultations and more. Basically, any event, service or resource that needs to be scheduled by date and time can be handled by this Easy Digital Downloads add-on.
Have you ever seen an appreciate “Thank you” message when making a high-value purchase? Or have you ever seen a conditional message appear when you try to purchase multiple items together that aren’t compatible with each other?
Would you like to implement something like that for your own online shop? Well, you’re in luck. Just this week the brand new Checkout Message extension for Easy Digital Downloads was released, making it super easy to do just that.
