Hi wonderful people!

I am working on this site:


The things this site wants to sell, or allow someone to pay for, are:

paying for live auction items
preorder DVDs of shows

These are not downloads, but rather intangibles.

memberships = $40
donations = $unlimited amount
paying for auction items = $fixed amount based on auction sales, they know the amount they need to pay
DVDs = $15 plus tax and shipping if needed

I'd love to integrate being able to purchase and pay for these items on our site. Our organization is already set up with PayPal.

Is Exchange ready to handle this for us? Since these are not downloadables but rather intangibles will Exchange work for us?

Looking for advice in general.

Marie MacDonald

Hi Marie,

Currently, there are only Digital Download products in Exchange.  You can create a product without having to add a download file, however.  So you might be able to make that work for you.

At this time, however, we do not have the donation (or pay what you want) option.  So you'd have to set a specific price for each item.

You can check out the features we plan on adding or that have been requested for Exchange and vote on them on our Exchange Roadmap.  One of them is the donation option.
