This WooCommerce plugin prevents a user from being able to purchase a downloadable product that they already own. In place of the “Add to Basket” button on the product page, a message will display informing the user they already own the item, and links to download the linked files are provided there. Those links are the special links to the file that are provided on the “My Downloads” page, or part of the “My Account” page.
If the user has had a refund for the item the normal “Add to Basket” button will show again, allowing purchase.
On any page that displays the products other than the single product page, the button shows as “Read More”, as though the product is not available.
The plugin is very fast, works together with WPML and can show the output in any language!
Now it also works with WooCommerce Subscriptions!
Just install the plugin as normal and activate it. Nothing else required.
- How does it work?
The plugin file adds 2 main functions that hook into WooCommerce using add_filter on ‘woocommerce_is_purchasable’, and ‘woocommerce_single_product_summary’.
It uses div tags, including “woocommerce-info wc-nonpurchasable-message”, which means it should be styled in conjunction with any WooCommerce theme. Tested on Shopkeeper.
