Here’s my selling situation.

Site is http://dl-patterns-dev.panedexpressions.com/

I have a number of patterns for sale as a downloads.  The pattern files are available to the buyer in two different file formats.  The prices for the two formats is different.

Is there a way to set up one product page that offers the pattern for download in either of the two file formats such that the buyer is charged the proper amount for that file format and then is given the file format ordered when the buyer returns to the Exchange Thank You page to access the download link?

In the above scenario the buyer would choose the Eye format when ordering the “Wild Roses Pattern” and would be charged the appropriate amount, sent to PayPal where it would be paid for, and then returned to the Exchange Thank You page where the download link would take the buyer to the “Wild Roses Eye Format” file to be downloaded but not to the “Wild Roses PDF” file.

Or would download links to both formats always be displayed on the Thank You page if both download files were associated with the one “Wild Roses” product page?

Or must I create a product page for each pattern in each file format thus ending up with a product page for “Wild Roses Pattern as a PDF file” and a separate product page for “Wild Roses Pattern as an Eye Format file”?

Hi Pete,

This currently isn't an option in Exchange or the Product Variants add-on.  I have, however, added it as a feature request which you can vote for on the Exchange Roadmap, but I don't have a timeline for if/when it would be added.

In the meantime, you would either need to give them access to both files with their purchase or you would need to create a separate product for each file type.  

Let us know if you have any additional questions.
