When you have created a new category or have clicked “Add item” in an existing category you will have the option to upload a “Digital file” item.

A file type can be any of the following; jpg, gif, tif, psd, png, swf, fla, doc, ppt, xls, mov, mpg, wmv, avi, mp3, aif, wav, zip, rar, pdf, c4d, max, eps.

The digital file you are selling will be uploaded to Inzu and securely delivered to the customer when they complete a purchase. This reduces load on your server and provides a reliable and secure method of delivery.

To add a digital file item you will need the following information:

Item upload

After choosing the digital file option you will see a form for uploading the item that is split into required and optional entries.

Title (required)

The item's title should describe the item in a clear and concise way. The title will appear on a customer’s receipt, so ensure sure each title is different.

Description (required)

The item's description allows you to give a more detailed description of the item. This is typically displayed alongside the item image when a customer is browsing your store pages.

Image (required)

This is an image of your product that will typically be displayed on product listing pages next to the product description. Note images are kept to a maximum of 800px high or 600px wide, depending on the image orientation. A thumbnail version of the image is also created at 200px high or 200px wide.

Group (optional)

If you have created an entry in the Groups application (see groups section), you can assign the product one of those groups. When assigned to a group you can omit any information included in that group, including required information such as item price.

Currency (required)

At least one currency must be selected.

Item price (required)

For each selected currency you will see a price for the item.

Sub category (optional)

You can select the item to belong to a sub-category if you have previously created a sub-category on the category edit page. Sub-categories are useful for stores with high numbers of product types.

More information on creating sub-categories can be found in the categories section of the e-commerce guide.

Long description (optional)

The long description field allows you to write a full write-up of the product with HTML styling such as lists, bold and italics. You may also add hyperlinks here.

Item ordering (optional)

Item ordering is a basic way to numerically order your items. This overrides the standard by-date ordering.

Tags (optional)

Tags are a simple but very useful feature. They can be used in a number of different ways. The most common use is to link products by a tag, or to link a product to an entry in the Inzu CMS or a ticket entry. So perhaps you have a gallery of images in the CMS that are relevant to the product. Instead of uploading them all again, you can just add a tag to both the product and the gallery entry and then your website will be able to relate the two. This works for all products and CMS entries whether it be news, galleries, video, events etc. This means your product pages can be rich with useful and engaging information.

Preview (optional)

The preview field allows you to add a computer file that provides more detailed information about the product, this may be a very large image, a video, a PDF, word document etc.
