Combining digital and 'real' products
« on: April 20, 2019, 16:39:03 pm »
With e.g. the 'Shipment for Virtual Products' plugin, is it possible to combine real and virtual products into a single product?
- For example to sell a downloadable PDF and a hard copy of a book as the same, bundled product.  ???
Thanks in advance for your advice guys.

Of course, the plugin only add the ability to download file(s).
You have perhaps to add a specific order statut when the file is downloadable, but nothing hard to do.

Merci Studio 42.
How do I 'add a specific order statut' using VM3's interface, to make a saleable item comprise both a digital download and a sent product?
I am not a programmer, but have learned to use the VM3 interface as it is.

Thanks to all for their advice at this questions board.  :)

My easy approach would be to have three products.

1. hardcopy
2. downloadable
3. combination of the two.

So product 2. and 3. use the download plugin.
Product 3 is just called: Bundle of hardcopy and downloadable! You just have made a combined product by using language.

No tweaks necessary, you can display the other two products in product details as related products, so all is visible in one view, if you want to sell separately too.
