Digital contents can be added to product master by clicking the super button “File”.
Note that you can see this File super button in every product (Not only in digital products).
For e.g, If you create a product “LG - Fridge”, It is not a digital product. But the super button ‘File’ is visible there.
In that case, it means you can attach any other file contents with the product like “User Manual”.
