Easy Digital Downloads is an excellent selling tool for digital goods shops, and we’ve written about it extensively. The core plugin is free and is monetizes via paid add-ons, but there are lots of great free extensions available, too.

We’ve already covered 15 of the best free Easy Digital Downloads add-ons, and we’re continuing the list with 9 more here.

Free Easy Digital Downloads Add-ons

1. Purchase Rewards

EDD Purchase Rewards allows you to give discount codes out to customers when they’ve completed a purchase to encourage repeat purchases and customer loyalty. You can set a minimum spend amount needed to provide the coupon, and it can be a code you’ve already created, or a unique, one-time use code can be generated specifically for the customer.

You can also require that a customer share their purchase via a social network in order to get the discount code for your store.

The Attach Accounts to Orders plugin allows you to attach guest purchases to a customer account, or choose to create an account for the customer.

4. Favorites

Favorites integrates with EDD Wishlists, so it’s not a standalone plugin. While Wishlists requires a customers to select a list to which they can add a product, Favorites is meant to make this process a bit more streamlined. Rather than using Wishlists to create different lists, favorites can be used for a one-click list addition. It’s sort of like allowing your customers to bookmark their favorite products.

If you use Easy Digital Downloads and Stripe as your payment processor, this extension can help you calculate and invoice the appropriate VAT. This is helpful for any retailer selling digital goods to the EU. You simply sign up for a Quaderno.io account, and Quaderno will automatically create and send invoices for Stripe payments to help you be compliant with these regulations.

There’s also a Taxamo integration coming via the add-on store as well that could be used instead.

This plugin creates a shortcode that will list all files associated with a download (names, not links). This can be an easy way to show customers what’s included within products that have more than one file. You can also include a download ID to display the files for a download on another page. This can be helpful if you’re writing a post about a new product and want to provide details on what’s included, as you can include the download ID in the shortcode to list its files.
