First of all, along with the odoo eCommerce module, we also need to install the module of “Digital Products” from the Odoo Apps.
After having installed this module we are able to sell our digital product through the website.
Firstly, we need to create or add a digital product.
Then we have to publish it on the website.
For a master product, we are able to add the digital content in the smart option of ‘Digital File’.
In every product window, we are able to see this option of the ‘Digital File’ tab.
For example, on the product page of “Acoustic Bloc screen” we can see the smart tab of ‘Digital File’ though it is not a digital product. It implies that we can attach any other digital documents with it.

Let’s go to the website as a portal user.
Here, the digital product has been added to the cart.
Now we can go to the backend and confirm the sales order of this digital product and make the payment for it.
When the sale order is confirmed the customer can see it through the site since the customer is the portal user here.
Now we shall log in to the portal user and see the sales order.
