The add-on E-goods modifies your X-Cart 5 store so it can be used 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 add-on E-goods extends the functionality of the add-on File Attachments allowing you to specify whether a file uploaded for a product can be accessed from the product page at any time freely or can be downloaded only after the product has been purchased.
The add-on E-goods makes use of X-Cart’s memberships feature, allowing you to restrict customer access to specific files based on customer membership; this can be used 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 so you can manually review and approve orders before the buyer 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.
