Addon by Duncan McClean

Simple Commerce - Digital Products Main Screenshot

This addon is a first-party extension of Simple Commerce which enables you to sell Digital Products with Simple Commerce.


  • Allows you to specifiy assets for the customer to download
  • Generates license keys
  • Emails customers with license keys and download links to purchased products


To install, require this addon as a Composer dependency:

composer require doublethreedigital/sc-digital-products

If you wish, you may also publish the configuration file for this addon by running the following command: php artisan vendor:publish --tag="sc-digital-products-config". The config file will exist as config/sc-digital-products.php.

That's it! You're ready to start selling digital products! 🎉


Adding downloadable assets to products

Once installed, you'll see a Digital Product tab appear on the publish form for your product entries.


In each of your digital products, you should enable the Is Digital Product? toggle and add the downloadable assets. These are the assets the customer will be able to access once they have purchased your product.

Product Variants

As of v3.1.0, the Digital Products addon supports adding different 'downloadable assets' per variant. So, instead of specifying the 'Download Limit' and 'Downloadable Assets' in the Digital Product tab, you'll specify them on each of your variants.

Overriding the licence key generation logic

By default, we create a serial license key which you can give to your customers. However, you may want to customise where the code comes from or maybe you want to send it away to a third party service.

To do this, you can create your own license key repository which implements the one provided by this addon.

To register your repository, you'll need to bind it to our LicenseKey facade. You can do this in your AppServiceProvider.

$this->app->bind('LicenseKey', App\Repositories\LicenseKeyRepository::class);


If you'd like the Digital Products addon to send your customers an email notification after they've purchased digital products, add the following to your config/simple-commerce.php config file.

'notifications' => [
    'digital_download_ready' => [
        \DoubleThreeDigital\DigitalProducts\Notifications\DigitalDownloadsNotification::class => [
            'to' => 'customer',

You can learn more about Simple Commerce's notifications system in the SC Documentation.

Customising the default view

If you wish to customise the default email view, you can publish it with this command.

php artisan vendor:pulish --tag="sc-digital-products-views"

You'll then find the published views in your resources/views/vendor/sc-digital-products folder.

Using your own notification

If you wish to have full control over the notification being used here, you may simply replace the class name.

License Verification

We've included a basic verification endpoint which you can use to check if a customer's license key is valid. Before you can use the endpoint, you'll need to enable Statamic's REST API.

Once enabled, you can simply make a POST request to /api/sc-digital-downloads/verification with a JSON body containing the license key you wish to verify.

  "license_key": "IpebSuXft9Koio5GgP7TSRdtl"

A valid response will look like this:

  "license_key": "IpebSuXft9Koio5GgP7TSRdtl",
  "valid": true

And an invalid one will be like this.

  "license_key": "IpebSuXft9Koio5GgP7TSRdtl",
  "valid": false

Download History

The Digital Downloads addon automatically provides a history log of every time something is downloaded. The download history is tracked per order item. When tracking downloads, we store the timestamp of download and the IP address it was downloaded from.

Inside your order's entry, it may look something like this:

  - product: d113c964-d254-4f6b-931b-686348f36af5
    quantity: 1
    total: 9000

    license_key: COt2IXuPqP6VTg3cfXmqQmP0
    download_url: "blahbla.test/link-for-download"
