Classic Commerce Skip Checkout


Skip checkout for free downloadable products in Classic Commerce in minutes.


Do you offer free downloads and think making invoices or even orders for those free downloads is silly? I did, so I made this plugin.
Creating orders for free stuff can be useful if you want to collect user addresses or email addresses. But I don’t do that, so I don’t need all that data.

With Classic Commerce Skip Checkout you can fix this issue in a few clicks. Simply activate your copy of the plugin. Provide a semi-public place to share your free downloads from and create your downloadable product as a free product and you’re done.

This plugin has no settings dashboard but requires some setup for your downloads.

It’s recommended to create a ‘free-downloads’ folder in /wp-content/, or someplace where you host your free downloads. Check the included readme.txt for details. Setup takes only a few minutes.

Little setup required

Simply activate the plugin and set up a folder for your downloads and the plugin takes care of the rest.

No messy admin

No more clutter in your orders dashboard with empty and useless orders. No order numbers wasted for your accountant.
