Inform via the customer account

If you have the customer account download links enabled in your settings, then you can inform your customer that they can access their downloads in their customer account by sending them an email. You will need to send them an email via your own email system.

Once the assets/files are attached to the order, they will automatically show in the customers order page (but only if you have this below setting enabled).
