Spirit Commerce now supports “SoftGoods” product download

Spirit Commerce now includes SoftGood support, or the ability to purchase down-loadable products.

Selling music, ebooks, videos, guides and games just got easier! SoftGoods is a great way to save you and your customers shipping and handling costs too.

We built this feature on top of Amazon’s S3 service to provide very reliable, fast, and secure downloads of your products.  Use your own Amazon S3 account and get set up in just a few minutes.

A few notes on the SoftGoods feature:

  • SoftGoods (files) are stored and downloaded from Amazon S3 (simple storage service).
  • Download availability time span may be set per product.
  • Configurable download product links and description appear on the order confirmation page and confirmation emails.
  • SoftGood support is included with all Spirit Commerce plans.
  • To enable SoftGood support, click on the store tab and then select the new SoftGood page. Once you enable the feature, your products screen will include a new section to support product download.

    We hope you enjoy the new feature and find it a useful tool for growing your online sales.
    Three Cheers to simplifying your order fulfillment! :)

    Spirit cart and checkout now more customizable

    We have sent up more good stuff for Spirit 3.4. Cart, login, and checkout screens can now have customized background colors and font styling. The simplest way to set this up is in the administrator store tab. Look at the cart & layout settings. There, you’ll find some settings that look like this:

    admin settings

    You can also set these options in your templates directly by adding bgcolor=”xxx” or style=”xxx” directly to your cart and checkout tags.

    Here is a screen shot of the Spirit login screen that has a different background color set:

    If you are on Spirit 3.3, now is a great time to ask us to upgrade your site. That said, we will begin upgrading all 3.3 sites to 3.4 later this year.
