Offer Downloads with Subscriptions on a WooCommerce Store

- written by

What if your client has some downloads that they want to offer to anyone who buys a subscription on their WooCommerce-run site? These could be extra, special offer, something free, or downloads already selling on the store.

The WooCommerce Subscription Downloads extension gives you the power to do this. It doesn’t limit it to downloads only available to subscribers. They are also able to see them as individual products on your clients store.

You will need to have the extension WooCommerce Subscriptions in order for it to work.

Easily Assign a Download to a Subscription

Once you have the extension activated, when you create your downloadable product, you have the option to assign it to a single or multiple subscriptions.

Create a Download for a Subscription

As an example, I have a PDF that has an eBook on podcasting. I also have a podcasting mastermind that I sell a six-month subscription to. So when someone purchases it, I would like them to have the eBook.

As you can see, I have the PDF created as a product that sells on my store for $9.95.

When the subscriber goes into their account page, under subscriptions, they will find the download there and can download it at their convenience. They will also notice that they are not charged for the ebook.

The download will be available to the customer as long as they are a subscriber to the product.

Also, any download you add will not only be available to new subscribers, but for any others who have have a subscription. This could act as a nice reward to current subscribers as well.

And unlike a product tied specifically to a subscription, the ebook is still on sale on my shop as well.

As you can see, this is an easy extension to set up and use. Check out he WooCommerce Subscription Downloads extension here.
