New Service Product Type

We’ve just released an update that brings a new service product type to DPD.

Service products do not include a download, keycode, or tangible good. They are useful for when you might want to sell consulting services, installation services, or other non-product related offerings to your customers.

To create a service product, simply select the Service product type when setting up a new product using our wizard. You will be able to set the name, price, and other options like other DPD product types.

The one big difference with service products is that you can specify a rich text block to be shown on the download page. This text block can include instructions to the buyer specific to the service they purchased, a link to a specific page on your own website where they can complete additional information related to the service, etc.

Service products can be included in bundles. For example, you can sell a bundle that contains a download + installation service, or an ebook + one-on-one consulting for one price.

DPD will send an IPN like any other transaction when services are sold, so you can integrate them with your own scripts and programs.

We welcome feedback on the new service product type. Let us know of any additional features that would make it more useful to you!

     Congratulations for this product.   Regarding Service product, it should be interesting to allow to create a layout for the customer.  The content of the layout should be sent attached with order confirmation.  Thanks
