Suppose you spent some time writing an ebook on fitness and nutrition and you want to sell it online, but don’t know how.
That reason alone is why we wrote this post. Today, we’ll take a quick look at how you can sell digital products with Shopify.
The great thing about digital products is that there’s such a low barrier to entry. If you have some knack for creativity (or a freelancer who can write), you can sell digital copies of your work.
Maybe you do better on video and don’t quite like writing. You can create a video series about fitness and nutrition and sell that online as well.
Benefits of Selling Digital Products:
- Low overhead cost (no warehouse or storage required)
- Unlimited stock (you can sell as many or as few as you’d like)
- Higher profit margins (due to the low cost of production)
- International markets (no headaches with shipping internationally)
- Automated system to deliver
If this doesn’t paint the picture for you, then think about what Amazon is doing with the Kindle…
Shopify has many 3rd party apps that bridge the digital download gap.
SendOwl is a 3rd party app that lets you sell many kinds of digital goods within Shopify. You can simply upload your file to their server, choose the product to associate it with and they take care of everything else.
Whenever a product is sold using SendOwl, it automatically generates a download link and sends it to the customer. Everything is automated and no daily management is required.
Selling digital products on Shopify is super easy and it’s something that you could literally get started with right now.
