The E-goods add-on modifies your X-Cart 5 store so you can use it to sell digitally distributed content (also known as digital goods / e-goods / digital distribution products).

Activating this add-on does not prevent you from selling tangible products in the same online store.

The "E-goods" add-on extends the functionality of the File Attachments add-on, allowing a store admin to specify whether customers can access product attachments at any time freely or can only download them after placing an order.

The "E-goods" add-on makes use of X-Cart's memberships feature, allowing you to restrict customer access to specific files based on customer membership. For example, you can use this feature to provide different files to different customer membership levels.

For more control of your downloadable goods orders, the add-on enables you to include an additional step into your order processing routine for downloadable products to manually review and approve the order details before buyers can actually access the downloadable content they have ordered.

The add-on helps you to combat piracy by limiting the number of days that a download link should be available and the number of times that customers can use this link.
