Some shop owners need to provide customers with more information on products they are viewing, not including it as part of the description or separating them out as features. The way-out is to offer it in downloadable files as PrestaShop attachments. Unlike virtual products, they can be freely accessed without the need to register, add the product to cart and proceed to checkout.
Why it might be useful? Imagine that you are selling plants and they all should be looked after in different ways: watered with various regularity, transplanted in different time periods, taken care of with certain specifics. Conscientious shop owners may want to make sure that their customers have some knowledge before completing a transaction. Basically, PrestaShop attachments can be a user guide, a hardware driver, video, media content, license or warranty agreement, or any other file that you provide the buyer without the necessity to register or place the order right away. This way you can show the main advantages of the goods you sell and give customers one more reason to make a purchase.
