Digital Media Gallery
In the area of digital progress more and more people prefer using electronic devices for daily activities. And reading is not an exception. It’s much easier, for instance, to read a favorite magazine online from any device anywhere. It’s even more convenient to have all the e-magazines and e-books gathered in one place. However, native Magento 2 functionality does not introduce any features that allow you to access digital media in a convenient way and store them in a library format.
Increase customer engagement and attract potential buyers by selling digital media on your store! Install the extension to enable a digital media library in the customer account on the frontend. Configure digital media files as native Magento 2 downloadable products and sell them in a usual fashion. Mind that purchased products can be accessed on the storefront for viewing purposes only, thus increasing the average time spent on your store.
Create Digital Media Library in Customer’s Profile
One of the very few extensions on the market, Digital Media for Magento 2 facilitates the sale of digital media products. It helps you start a library or media depository were all purchased by the Customer products are collected into one place in your store. With Digital Media these products are no longer downloadable, but easily accessible for viewing. This will by far help you increase customer traffic, keep visitors engaged within the store, and, of course, will provide for full compliance with copyright requirements.
Digital media product
Create digital media products as native Magento 2 downloadable products. If the file type is supported by the extension, the product, when purchased by the Customer, will get into My Library. Max. Downloads will presume a maximum number of views.
Customers collect purchased media into a library, where files are represented within a grid. A cover image, product name, and file title define each media product. Clicking on the name of the product opens a viewer in the new window of the browser to view the contents of the file.
Since digital media products are only for private use, the functionality of the in-built online pdf-viewer has been sensibly reduced to that of navigating along with the file pages only. Printing, downloading, sharing the file, or copying text in it is made not possible.
Digital products grid
The My Downloadable products grid will see products, which file-types are supported by the extension, get the download link and icon substituted with the view icon and link. For digital media products, the value of Remaining Downloads will mean the number of remaining views.
Allow customers to only view purchased digital products and do that only on the store, no sharing or downloading.
Enable customers with convenient front-end functionality to easily access purchased media and keep it separate from other downloadable products.
Make use of Web API and GraphQL support to ask the extension for exactly what you need and nothing more and enable powerful developer tools.
Familiar user experience
PDF products are purchased as usual downloadable products, so the customer experience remains the same.
Digital products grid
