Another digital download question

Another Digital download question

I have been examining your free eCommerce MySQL database for digital downloads as well as the one that comes with the database starter kit. In the starter kit in the Items table there is a column, ItemDownload. Your free eCommerce database contains a ProductLocation column within the products table. Your instructions state, "This column is intended to be used for digital goods, if you need to store the filename or path for that product. For all the products in your products table that are digital goods, you should enter the filename to the file that the customer will be downloading. If you are not using the Free eCommerce database, make sure to add a ProductLocation column, with a VARCHAR (250) Datatype, to your products table."

This appears to be the main difference with the ps3_products table. If we were to manually this field to the ps3_products table would power store then support digital downloads?

It's more than just adding the column to the database,

you would also need to modify PowerStore to:
1) Force login before purchasing

2) Add the download function in the order detail page.
