How To

Adding a product

Adding a Simple product is similar to writing a post in WordPress.

  1. Go to Authors Section > Add new Book.
  2. Enter a product Title and Description.
  3. Go to the Product Data panel, and select downloadable (digital).

Product data

The Product Data meta box is where the majority of important data is added for your products.

Product data is added in this panel

General section

  • Price
    • Regular Price – Item’s normal/regular price.
    • Sale Price – Item’s discounted price that can then be scheduled for certain date ranges. The sale expires at 11:59pm of the specified end date.


Product short description

Add an excerpt. This typically appears next to product imagery on the listing page, and the long description appears in the Product Description tab.


On the right-hand side of the Add New Product panel, there are book categories in which you can place your books. You can also assign product tags in the same way.

WooCommerce Product Categories and Tags

Product images

Add a main product image. This should be your book cover.

Adding a downloadable product

When adding a simple product, you can tick the Downloadable checkbox box in the product type panel. This adds two new fields:

  • File path — Path or url to your downloadable file.
  • Download limit – Limit on number of times the customer can download file. Left blank for unlimited downloads.
For maximum flexibility, downloadable products also incur a shipping cost (if, for example, you were offering both a packaged and a downloadable version of a product, this would be ideal). You can also check the Virtual box if the downloadable product is not shippable.
