I am wondering if it’s possible for Magento to have feature to provide a link to download digital product just after the buyer has make the payment. Is that a feature available or modification needed? It will be great if this feature is included.

Support for virtual products is expected to be available soon.

Will the virtual product downloads be by re-direct (Linux) or just direct?  Direct downloads are box killers on a busy site.

I thought it was slated for sometime around the 1.1 release but I could be wrong.

I downloaded and installed ver 1.1.6 yesterday and it includes virtual products when adding a new product however, I do not see how to configure the item where the customer would receive the link to download the item(s) or for us to upload the product if we had to do configure it that way.

I think it’s going to be a great feature once it’s active.

Quick side note: ver 1.16 has multiple bugs with files not being named properly and causing errors.  It’s easy enough to fix because Magento tells you the missing file name.  All you do is navigate to the folder and rename the file properly.  It’s very simple to fix!

Lol...that’s a pretty late reply.  As a developer I have long since given up on Magento, but at least I know this is there should the need ever arise.
