File downloading

19/05/2010

You can allow customers to download specific output files right after placing an order.

ZetaPrints web-to-print and dynamic imaging system generates files of different types: CDR, PDF, JPEG, GIF and PNG. These files can be downloaded by the customer, if you allow so.

Edit template details

To give your customers downloading permission, you need to edit the template details. This is done in your web-to-print portal (your ZetaPrints site).

Magento web-to-print template details

Login to your printer account and navigate to Edit Details page of the template in question.

Magento web-to-print output files

Choose which file formats you want to be generated in the Order generation section, check the “Allow” check-box in the File download section and Save your settings.

Note. You can also do this for multiple templates at once using the bulk edit option.

Run ZetaPrints templates synchronization profile in Magento admin panel to synchronize the new template settings with your Magento store.

Order details

Your customers will now be able to download the generated files directly from the order details page.

Magento order details

Depending on which file types you allowed for downloading, links are listed above the product preview image.

Note. Allowing output file download affects old orders as well as new ones. When you allow files to be downloaded for a template, customers that placed orders on that template in the past will also be able to download the generated files for those past orders from their corresponding order details pages.
