The list of downloads includes the user’s ‘Available Downloads’, which have either been purchased or placed there after permission was granted by the store manager. Customers can select the ones they want to download or Select All and then download a dynamically created zip file containing the selected files.

Customization ↑ Back to top

If you want to remove this button, CSS can be added to your custom.css file or with a plugin like Simple Custom CSS:

.wcbd-zip-form.wcbd-order-zip-form { display: none; }

The file that they download will be generated in the custom wcbd_zips folder that is created in the /wp-content/uploads/ directory on plugin installation. This file will be automatically delete every hour or so.

Note: If you are unfamiliar with code and resolving potential conflicts, select a WooExpert or Developer for assistance. We are unable to provide support for customizations under our  Support Policy.

Uninstalling ↑ Back to top

When the plugin deactivated and deleted, it will remove the wcbd_zips folder from the uploads directory and any files within it. This will have no effect on your product’s downloads or files, so don’t worry at all.

WooCommerce Bulk Download can only zip files that exist on your web server. If your customers are downloading some files from Amazon S3 for example, those files will not be included in the zip folder.
