Spiral Unpaid Download Plugin for Virtuemart

This custom field plugin for Joomla and Virtuemart allows you to add a free download link to your product page.

For example, suppose you want to offer a manual for your product to your customers, which they can download as a pdf file. The plugin can be used to attach a download button to your product. Moreover you can attach as many download links as your want per product, if you have multiple files.

The plugin can track the number of downloads made. It has some useful additional features: optionally downloads can be restricted to registered users only, or specific shopper groups, so it can be used for subscription sites.

Please note that the free download plugin is not designed to create a link which will be sent in an order email when an order is confirmed, it is designed to provide a free download link which will be displayed on the product page. If you require a download plugin which will only create a link when the order is confirmed you will need to buy the paid download plugin.

 This plugin is available as a free download (naturally!), which you can download below using an example of the plugin in action.

There is documentation available here.
