See the manual.
http://virtuemart.net/documentation/User_Manual/Product_Files_and_Images.html

I did see the manual... I followed the instructions, but it's going to shipping.

I guess it's a pretty vague question, but I don't know how to ask it.

I've selected the image, enabled it for download, applied the changes, and saved.

When I try to buy it goes to shipping.

Is there another place to trigger the downloadable toggle on the product?

Cheers,
Ron

I am also having the same issue, I am not getting a screen to upload the product. I have downloads enabled and using Joomla 1.5 and VM 1.1.0. I have read and re read the manual. Still I cannot get a download screen to appear.

I am also having the same issue Joomla 1.5 and VM 1.1.0. I enabled downloads, but there is nowhere to upload the files.  The section as shown in the manual is not available anywhere in the admin panel.

Is there a something else we have to do or a module we have to install?

No, found the issue. It is there, just not easily found. You have to create the product first. On this page of the manual http://virtuemart.net/documentation/User_Manual/Product_Files_and_Images.html On that page, scroll down below the upload image at the top of the page and you'll see how to do it.

Once you've created a product, go to the product list. There is a column called "media". Click on the icon that corresponds to your product and that box at the top of the page pops up to upload a file. Kind of backwards, but the info is there.

Best,
Sue
