Digital Downloads

Trolley lets you upload files, which customers can purchase online and download once their payment has completed.

Create a product

Adding a Download product

Once you've created your Trolley account, you can create your first product. Click on Products, then New Product.

Fill in the basic product details - price, currency, description and so on.

Set the Product Type to be Download

Now add a file using the Downloads button

Adding files

Adding a file

You can add files from your desktop, from the camer directly, from Dropbox, Facebook and a host of other sources.

Once you've added as many files as you need, press the blue "Add" button to lose the file picker box.

Scroll down a bit to the bottom of the Product page and click Save.

How it works for customers

When a customer purchases your Download product, first they'll be shown on-screen links to download the files.

They'll also receive permanent links to the files in their email receipt from Trolley.

As soon as you've pressed Save Trolley generates the unique payment link for your products. It looks like this:

Copy that, and you can send it via email, WhatsApp, Tweet it, pop it in your Instagram bio - whatever you like. If someone clicks it they'll be taken straight to the hosted payment page associated with your product. If they pay you, you'll receive an email.

Put the product on your website

Once you've saved your product you'll see that Trolley asks you to grab a chunk of HTML and paste it into your website.

Select the code (the words in the dark greybox, above…) and copy it - either using your keyboard, or by clicking the little Copy icon.

Now flip over to your text editor, open up the source, and paste the code from Trolley somewhere into your design, like so:

<button data-trolley="true" data-tpk="UNIQUE_RANDOM_STRING">

<!-- You only need this once per page (but it won't do any harm) -->
 <script async src=""

Refresh your website in the browser and you should see a Pay button.

Click it, and a Trolley pop-up widget should appear, just like this:

Popup cart

Deploy your edited website and that's it - you're live!
