5 Reasons You Should Use Easy Digital Downloads for Digital Products

  1. Lots of integrations and extensions made by the core developers 00:55
    • EDD previously had a 3rd party marketplace, but did away with it in order to focus on the best integrations/extensions.
    • It’s a huge relief to know that the core developers are maintaining these as well.
    • Before Tim switched to EDD, he used WooCommerce and a list of various plugins to make it work for his business. This meant that every time something broke on a plugin, he had to track down a different developer.
  2. Lightweight compared to other ecommerce platforms 03:17
    • WooCommerce is the #1 ecommerce platform in the world. There’s no denying that it is fantastic.
    • However, with digital products, you don’t need a robust platform. You don’t need shipping and other integrations for physical products.
    • EDD streamlines the ecommerce process, so you only have to put in the information that you actually need.
  3. Easy Digital Downloads is always innovating and adding in new tools 04:00
    • The team is always creating new functionalities for your digital product business.
  4. It’s free! 06:08
    • There are paid extensions, but the basic platform can get you up and running.
  5. Easy Digital Downloads has outstanding support 06:47
    • David and Tim have both experienced this first hand while setting up EDD on their sites.
    • If you are investing in a product or suite of products to run your business, you need to make sure that those products work very well.
    • Not only do EDD products work very well, but they have the support to back it up.
