How do I attach downloadable files to products?

Hello there!
I’m testing this wonderful piece of software in order to build my eshop.

While playing I noticed that I can’t attach downloadable files (i.e. a pdf brochure) for them to appear in the product view. Am I missing something or products are not yet ready to support attached files?

Great work! wink

Welcome to the community.

Virtual / Downloadable products are currently not supported. Such functionality will be available in future versions.

Thanks for the answer!

In fact what I meant was not to sell a Virtual / Downloadable product, but to attach a downloadable file to a (material) product description.

Let’s figure out that I’m selling an industrial machine. As an example, I’d like that my customers could download the brochure, the complete data-sheet and the certificates, before proceeding into the checkout process.
I think that it may be done through attributes… anyway I didn’t see any attribute field that fits to that purpose.

Thanks again!

hi

i was actually looking just for this as well. and did not find it either. i read in the roadmap, that with the prod. release a media manager should get introduced, i assumed that this then would add this option. is my thinking correct?

for the time being i might use the url field into a public directory on my webserver as a temporary solution.

cheers,

ralph

This kind of attribute does not exist yet. We have plans to add this type of attribute to the system and will do our best to have it ready for the first stable release. As an alternative, and a dirty solution, you can add links to a designated location in the description of the product that supply the PDF files.

Thanks

Hi, I have the same suggestion/request!

A place to include downloadable files like a ZIP with Drivers for some hardware or even a PDF manual.

Keep the good work!

I just updated to Magento 1.3.0 and still does not seem to have a support document attachment feature for products. Does anyone know if/when this feature will be implemented, or if anyone else has built a module that will allow you to attach support documents to products? I’m afraid I may have to roll my own and wanted to make sure I wasn’t doing something that has already been done.

Yes. I am now using the Useful Downloads extension for this. It works perfectly.

Hi!
Have a look at this extension - Product Attachments
It allows to attach any files to your product page.
