EDD Downloads As Services


This plugin requires Easy Digital Downloads v1.9 or greater.

Many customers use Easy Digital Downloads to sell “services” rather than “downloads”. We get many requests to remove the “no downloadable files” on the purchase confirmation page, because their services do not have/need files attached. This plugin fixes that.

It will allow you to select individual downloads which are services, or an entire category which houses your services. If a download is marked as a service, or belongs to one of the categories you selected, the the purchase confirmation page will not show “no downloadable files” for that particular download. If your service does have a file attached, it will still show the file. It also slightly modifies the email receipt so it does not include a dash next to the name.

So far, this plugin allows you to:

  1. Hide the “no downloadable files found” message on the purchase confirmation page when your service has no download files attached to it
  2. Hide the extra dash in the purchase receipt email when your service has no download files attached to it
  3. Select categories from the plugin settings that house your “services”. Any download within the selected categories will be marked as a service
  4. Mark downloads as services on a per-download level. A checkbox is added to the download configuration metabox

Suggestions welcome for future features. Developers can take advantage of the _edd_das_enabled meta_key and extend the plugin to suit their needs.


  • Select a category to make all downloads within it a service
  • Mark downloads as services on a per-download level
