How to use
- Install and activate the plugin like you do with any other plugins. Once activated, it will create a menu “Digital Paybox” in left side column in the admin area.
- Click left side menu “Digital Paybox >>> Settings” and do required settings. Set your payment gateways parameters, e-mail address for notifications, e-mail templates for success and failed payments, download link lifetime, etc.
- Click left side menu “Digital Paybox >>> Files” and upload the files that you would like to sell. In this section you also can set the minimum price for your files, view all payment transactions, generate and view temporary download links. You also can upload large files through FTP-connection (upload them to folder
/wp-content/uploads/donation-downloads/files/) and assign them in this section.
- Once file uploaded look at column “Shortcode”. This is short code which you can insert into your posts or pages. The short code is like that:
[paybox id="XXX"](XXX – is an ID of file). You also can extend this short code by adding return_url parameter. For example, if you wish to redirect your customers to
http://www.website.com/thank-you.htmlpage after successful payment, just insert the following short code:
[paybox id="XXX" return_url="http://www.website.com/thank-you.html"].
- Go to any post/page edit page and insert short code there. This shortcode is replaced by payment form automatically.
That’s it! Enjoy using the plugin.
