Setting up a free download

What you’ll need:

  • A storage connection, we recommend an Amazon S3 account
  • A file or release asset with fulfillment files attached

If you want to set up a free download without asking for an email address, you’ll need to use our Secure Download element.

Start with your asset. After you’ve added your file or release, open the asset’s settings section. You’ll see an option to add the item to your inventory. Here is where you’ll give it a public title and description, set the price, and enable "pay-at-least" pricing if you like.

Tip: All the files you attach to a given release will be made available as a group. For instance, if you're offering an album and attach 12 mp3 files and two artwork files, whoever accesses your release through one of our elements will have to individually download all fourteen files. Consider compressing all your files into a zip file.

Next, head back to the main page. Select the campaign you’re working on, click the Add button, and then select Secure Download.

You’ll be prompted to choose a target mailing list and a downloadable asset. If you want to provide a direct download, leave the mailing list set to None, but choose which file or release you want to offer from the asset menu. Click Next, give your element a private name, then click Save changes.
