Selling file downloads and certificates through Drupal Commerce

Selling file downloads and certificates through Drupal Commerce

Drupal Commerce is one of the few eCommerce platforms in the world developed as native extension of a Content Management System. Unlike the "bolt on" solutions provided by other CMS vendors, Commerce Core uses the exact same APIs that Drupal uses for content management to define products, protect private files, identify users, and manage access rights. This makes it a perfect fit for a variety of digital commerce use cases!

‣ Audio / video file download sales and licensing
‣ Standards documentation in hard copy vs. PDF download
‣ Continuing education certification via online quizzes

In each of these cases based on real world implementations, merchants are able to combine features of Drupal itself with modules in the Drupal Commerce ecosystem (like Commerce File) to create highly capable digital commerce platforms.
