What’s the Best Digital Downloads App for Shopify?

There are so many digital download apps on the Shopify app store, but which one does what you need best? Read below to find out the best digital downloads app for Shopify.

Behind the scenes at Fileflare, we have over a decade of experience as app developers and Shopify experts, so we know how to create the right digital product delivery app.

We had found, after making a bunch of digital product stores on Shopify, that there was something missing. The apps that were on the market just weren’t cutting it. Either failing to deliver or having a very confusing user interface, we had to solve this issue for ourselves & everyone else.

This is why we came along and crafted our own digital downloads app that solves all the issues we faced. For this reason, we will show you why our app stands out for delivering digital downloads on Shopify.


The best method to sell digital downloads on Shopify is the Fileflare Digital Downloads app. You can install it from the Shopify app store. It’s a favourite for many Shopify experts and was created by Shopify developers.

Different way for your customers to download assets

It’s important to be able to access your downloads in a variety of ways. Nowadays, we all get bombarded with spam emails. Therefore our email accounts sometimes send important mail to the spam folder. This is hard to avoid in this day of age. Different mail service providers have different levels of spam filters.

Our fraud protection syncs with Shopify’s fraud detection system directly, reading all potentially fraudulent orders. Once Shopify flags a medium or high-risk order, our app allows you to block the downloads being sent to the order until you thoroughly review it. You can then send the download email if you feel the order is trustworthy.
