Selling ePub and MOBI files on WordPress with WooCommerce
« on: January 11, 2019, 06:30:51 AM »
I've been selling ePub and MOBI files from my website with Payhip. I recently set up a WooCommerce page to sell paperbacks. I really like the WooCommerce platform and would like to start selling ePubs and MOBIs through the WooCommerce store. However, WordPress does not allow ePub and MOBI files to be uploaded as media files. I've seen a few plugins that allow ePub and MOBI uploads but I'm not sure which ones are the best. I'm concerned about file security and reliability of the plugin.

Can anyone recommend a plugin or another method to upload these file types to WordPress to sell through WooCommerce? Or a way to create a secure URL for WooCommerce to link to for download?

I'd appreciate any advice on this. Thanks!

This one looks good but I haven't tried it. Its screenshot includes how to do it for epub/mobi files.

Thanks, Matthew! I'll look more into this one.
