Do you take commission for my sales?

No! We don’t take any commission for any of your sales.

How does the fraud protection work?

We have integrated with Shopify’s fraud system. This allows us to track orders “risk status”. Just head into the settings and set the level you want to be alerted for (low, medium, high). We detect the risk status and then depending on your setting we will send the download email.

Is the free plan completely free?

Yes, the free plan is permanently free. You can always have the option to upgrade to a paid plan with a 7-day free trial or downgrade back to the free plan anytime you want.

Is the plan storage allowance per file or total?

The total amount of storage space. For example if you have 10GB on your plan, you will only be allowed to upload 10GB worth of files. You could upload 2 x 5GB files if you wanted.

Where can I see how much storage I have left?

You can find this on the ‘Assets’ page. You can also find it on the ‘Stats’ page if you have a paid plan.

Do you have an API?

Yes, we do have an API available, you can see the API documentation here.

My customer did not get the download email.

You can resend download emails for the orders page and update the email address if needed.

Also, please inform your customer that sometimes emails fall into the spam folder and to check there. This happens because some email systems have different levels of security. Sometimes just a specific word can cause your emails to fall into spam. Learn more about email deliverability and why emails go to spam.

Can I upgrade/downgrade my plan at any time?

Yes! You can do this by going to the app > go to ‘Settings’ > click on ‘Plans’ > change your plan here.

If I downgrade my plan from 20GB to 5GB, and I have more than 5GB of storage, will I lose everything?

No, you won’t lose anything. You just will not be able to upload or update any assets until you upgrade or delete some.

If I uninstall the app, will all my assets be deleted?

Yes, 48 hours after uninstalling the app, all your data and assets will be permanently deleted. If you install the app again before the 48 hours are complete, you will still have your assets.

How do I sync or import products?

All products and variants are synced automatically from Shopify. To edit any product information, please go to Shopify’s product editor and it will automatically sync to our app once you click save.

Can the customer still download assets after an order is cancelled/refunded?

No. The links are disabled using our intelligent URL security system.

How do I attach a URL or link as an asset?

Please see our detailed guide on how to attach a URL as an asset here. For a short overview, read below.

Attach URLs for your customer to download by going to the ‘Assets page, and then clicking the ‘Upload new assets’ button.

You will be presented with a box to enter the URL of your download link, title and file size. This is fully compatible with Dropbox, Google Drive, WeTransfer, OneDrive and many more. Ensure that you attach the newly created link to a product via the products page.

Do URL assets count towards my storage limits?

No, URL assets do not apply to your storage limits. This means you can have unlimited URLs as assets using our app.

Can you update a file & notify customers for a URL asset?

No, it’s not possible to update a file when using URL Assets. You can only update a file when uploading the file to our servers or uploading to an attached server of your own. This is because we are unable to control the assets or URLs from an external server such as Dropbox etc. as we do not own them.

If you want to update a file for a URL asset, you will need to update it yourself in your external platform and then edit the URL asset link with the new one. You will need to inform your customers using your own email platform such as Klaviyo or similar. Using an email platform like Klaviyo, you can send emails to customers who have purchased specific products.

What does 'Overage bandwidth' and 'Capped bandwidth' mean?

Overage bandwidth – from the ‘Scale’ plan and upwards, you have an allocated amount of free bandwidth to use. Any bandwidth used above this free amount will be charged an overage bandwidth charge.

Capped bandwidth – once you have used the total amount of free bandwidth on your plan, you will need to upgrade your plan to get more bandwidth.

You can see the charges on the pricing page.

When does the bandwidth get charged to my account?

The bandwidth overage fees get charged to your Shopify account on the 1st of every month at 12:00am UTC.

Will I be notified if I reach my bandwidth limit?

Yes, you will be notified via email when you reach 80%, 90%, 95% & 100% of your bandwidth allowance.

We want to be very transparent with no hidden charges. This helps give you plenty of time to take action and keep your bandwidth costs low.

If I have bandwidth overage charges and I upgrade my plan to the next tier, will the new bandwidth allowance apply to my overage charge?

Yes. If you upgrade to the next tier plan and get more free bandwidth, the free bandwidth will apply to your account instantly and reduce your overage charge amount.

You will not be charged bandwidth overage charges instantly when upgrading, only when you downgrade you will be charged instantly. Bandwidth overage charges are billed on the 1st of every month 12:00am UTC.

For example:
If you have used 350GB of bandwidth and you are on the Scale plan which includes 250GB free bandwidth, that means you will have 100GB of bandwidth overage. This will incur a $15 bandwidth overage fee at the rate of $0.15 per GB.

If you upgrade to the Professional plan before the end of the month, which includes 500GB of free bandwidth, you now will not have any bandwidth overage charges. You will have only used 350GB out of your 500GB allowance.

If I downgrade my plan when I have bandwidth overage charges, will I be charged?

Yes. If you have bandwidth overage charges and you downgrade your plan, you will be charged instantly for your overage charges.

If you upgrade, you will not be charged overage charges.

If I change a limitation setting, will it apply to all orders?

No, it will not apply to all orders delivered by email. It will only apply to the orders that are delivered when this setting is enabled. You will need to resend a download email to the customer with the new settings enabled. This is because sent emails cannot be edited.

Let’s say if an email was sent to the customer with a limit of 3 downloads, that email will always have a limit of 3, even if you change the setting. This is because the emails are sent as they are with the limits set in the URL. You will need to resend a new email with the new limits.

Customer accounts & Thank you page
Yes, the settings will apply automatically. The current setting will apply to all orders in the customer accounts and Thank You page.

My customers are getting a '403 Invalid Signature' error when clicking on a link

This is usually caused by Chrome apps installed on the browser that inspect and change the URL.

Inform your customers to open up the downloads in an incognito window or a different browser to access them instantly.

Please make sure Ad Blocker is turned off, and if the issue persists, you will need to delete some Chrome apps one-by-one to find which app is causing the issue.

Can I import a list of assets as links using a CSV doc?

Yes, you can upload your assets via CSV by contacting us and requesting.

Does PDF Stamping work with external URLs as assets?

No, our app needs to host the PDF to be able to stamp the details. When your PDF is hosted somewhere else, it’s not possible for us to control the PDF and add the stamps.

What happens if I have multiple assets for a single product pre-order?

A new email will be sent for each asset, even if the emails are sent at the same time. Unfortunately, it’s just the way it is for now.

If you don’t like this method, you can use the Customer Account method, this way all the assets will be in one list in their accounts.

What timezone is the pre-order time in?

The date/time calendar is set using your local computer time. Please keep this in mind if you are in a different timezone to your store.

Can I attach the pre-order asset after the orders have happened?

Yes, you can. The pre-order asset will deliver to everyone who has ordered the product it is attached to, even if they ordered the product before the asset was attached to it. Learn more about the pre-orders in this tutorial.

What will customers receive when the pre-order release time is hit?
