Building an indie business in the center of venture capital. I am Alex Edmonds. People in internet, call me supremerumham. And this is a building an indie business podcast recorded in the indie business studio. Okay, so today we're going to talk about how to sell digital products on Shopify. Yes. Yeah. So how to sell digital products on Shopify. Last week, I did it on WordPress. So today, we're going to do Shopify. Yes. So it's a little different on Shopify. I've mentioned this before, but Shopify really caters to drop shippers and drop shippers don't have any inventory. So the first thing you need to do is you need to download the digital downloads app on Shopify. So okay, how do you download an app on Shopify? So you're at the homepage, click the Search bar, there's a product or now click Apps. And then just type in digital downloads and it will pop up. And it is made by Shopify. Yes, so to download that, let it load. And let's see. We're at the dashboard. Okay. So you Alright, so now, um, you just create a product. So products, add product. And this is where it gets really weird. Because there's no way it doesn't look like you can add a digital product. So you just put your title in. My title is going to be PA, IB podcast, trailer. podcast is spelled wrong, but that's okay. Because no one can see it. I'm gonna make it a draft. And then I'm gonna save it and I only put the title. Okay, and then it saves it and whatever. And then now you have this little like corner menu option in the right. It says duplicate preview share more actions, you're going to want to go to more actions, and add digital file. Upload File, I am uploading a, m for a file. Okay, and then it's gonna give you a bunch of settings. Download settings, so auto fill variant, and then mainly create fulfillment and the difference here is automatically create filament says fulfillment is only for mp3. And then manually create fulfillments is mixed goods. So like a CD and a CD and mp3. So since mine is just an audio file, I choose automatically create fulfillments um, and then mainly croute generated your else you don't have any URLs generated. So I'm going to click Generate your URL. And then now there's a link. So if I click the URL, it's going to take me to a site where people can download the file. Okay. Um, yeah, so that's how you create the digital file and then you're going to want to go back to your product page. Fill out all the information Bab podcast trailer can we also add the audio to the file? Let's check. Insert Image insert video Insert Table No, it does not seem like it. Okay, and then you add file and this is like a preview. So I'm going To just do the podcast trailer or know the podcast thing, what's the word I'm looking for? I'm podcast cover. That's the word I'm looking for. Okay. Blue podcast cover. That's what it's called. sloping. There it is, um, price is 1999. compared at price, I don't know what that is. So I'm going to click the question mark to show a reduced price, move the products original price and to show a reduced price, move the products original price and compare that enter a lower value into price. Okay, so this is if I have a discount, so I'm gonna put 1999 Nine. Oops, sorry. And then I'm gonna put 599 Because MSL, my tip for only 599, please. charge tax on this product. Nah, cost per item customer won't see this. It's digital product. So I'm gonna put 999. And it shows me the numbers. So I'm okay. So I'm going to put 199. And now my margin is 66.8. My profit is $4. And that's because my I have a discount price. Right? Now there's inventory, you don't need that it says track quantity, you unclick that. You might have an S k you. You might have a barcode, put those in. I don't have that. And then shipping. It says this is a physical product, you're going to unclick that. Then this product has options like color or size. No, it doesn't. Right, so I'm still keeping into draft product. Category. What's the product category for this one? It's probably let's just do media. product type audio collection. Let's do podcast episodes. Okay, tag audio same Online Store Theme template default. Okay, so now we save. And then we preview. And so what does that look like? Alright, so um, exactly, like I said, you see the audio category, the title and Bab podcast with two s's because I spelled it wrong. You see the 599? Because that's what you sell tapes for. With the 9099 crossed out quantity. Then the tag is audio. And then you can share this. So if I click the Twitter button, what does it look like? Oh, I have to log into Twitter first. Okay, so let me log into Twitter Okay, so it's just a link to the preview, not even the product. And then it says the title. And that's it says the title twice. I don't know why. Oh, no. It's the title and then the title or the product description. Okay. And then this section currently doesn't include any content add content to this section using the sidebar. Weird. Sidebar, hide bar. Okay, yeah, I don't I don't know what that means. But okay. Um, okay. So that is how you sell digital products on Shopify. Thank you for listening. Have a nice day. Bye.
