    Downloadable goods set-up is different depending on whether you have a free account or premium account.

    For FREE accounts there is no facility for entering a product description in the database setup so you need to use a specific product field syntax which includes your unique product code. A price field is also needed. Support page reference -> https://www.mals-e.com/support/tpv.php?tp=31

    FORM VERSION

    <form action="http://wwX.aitsafe.com/cf/add.cfm"; method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="userid" value="XXXXXXXX">
    <input type="hidden" name="product" value="001: Product for Download">
    <input type="hidden" name="price" value="1.99">
    <input type="hidden" name="return" value="www.example.com">;
    <input type="submit" value="Buy Now">
    </form>

    For PREMIUM accounts it is quite different. You are able to use a field named 'pcode' where the value equals a unique product code that you have created in the database setup, along with a product description, price, shipping units if required, and link for download. The 'pcode' is checked against the database to verify and display the correct product and price details automatically in the cart. There is no support page reference for this procedure but it is detailed in premium account cart setup.

    Edited to add - The forum is still very buggy. Please ignore the confusing random hyperlink rendering and the spurious semi-colons that appear after a link.
