Is it possible to Ship a Product, that is downloadable?
I want to sell Music as Downloads, and also as CDs. An option to ship downloadable Products would be very nice.

Or are there any other ideas, to achieve this?

Thanks for your help!

I would suggest creating a Virtual Product for the shipped one, and a Downloadable Product for the digital one. Either way, you have to make two seperate products.

Make your main entry in the catalog a downloadable product. Then at checkout, upsell the compact disc version as an upgrade. thus, the customer will get the download right away and the disc version in the mail later. I’ve found this cuts way down on slow shipping complaints as they get the product right away.
