To upload new products go to Catalog/Digital Content and click the "Upload Product" button.
You are guided through the complete product upload process. It is recommended that you enter all the data that you will also want in your Prestshop store. This includes cover picture, name, description, license and pricing information.

Select the products you want to sync and then click the "Sync products now" button. You'll see a progress and the products will be created in your Prestashop store.
Digital products are displayed in the shop the same way as any other products. If you sell a product with different licenses (e.g. rental or permanent), the customer needs to select the license prior to the purchase.
After the customer completes the purchase, the "Account" section shows a new "Digital Products" section.
The "Digital Products" section contains all information to access the purchased digital product.
In addition, the customer receives an email with his account and access information.
