An update on this would be appreciated. The ability to sell downloadable products will be make or break for me choosing to use Magneto - which looks great as regards all other features.

@Carlos777

You can see (like all of Us) that the roadmap (http://www.magentocommerce.com/roadmap) says that is a future functionality.
I don’t remember, but maybe you can search into the forum. A few weeks ago someone ask about this, and Roy Rubin response that they can’t promise Us that this funcionality it’s gonna be ready for the 1.2 version.

Carlos I’m in exactly the same boat. I’m using the linkloc script right now (its pretty good actually), but a full e-commerce solution would be nice.

Once magento handles downloadable products I cans see it taking off as the platform of choice for the small digital product entrepreneur.

i’m in the same boat.  As long as the implement it RIGHT, I’ll be a happy man smile

Even with CRE loaded, it wasn’t an easy task to set up right.  Basically you had to set the weight to 0 in order for the customer to get a free shipping page which really meant downloadable.
