free shipping for non-tangible goods

I have books which are available in both hard copy and download format, and am also selling training courses. I have shipping rules set up for tangible goods but I can't think how to set up a free shipping rule for downloads and courses. I don't think I can do it with a new column in the products table because in the example of the books, there is one product with several options, and the no shipping rule would only apply to the downloadable options of that product. Could you give me some guidance on how to set up this rule?

How are you doing the shipping for the other items?

I have a series of shipping rules for flat rates based on quantity and country - one set of prices for GB, one set for all EU countries and another set for Rest of World. So for example, 1 book posted within GB is £2.99, 2 books is £3.55, 1 book to EU country is £5.00, 2 is £6.00 etc.

I would add another column to your cart: "ShippingRequired" and then set it to "0" or "1" based on if the item requires shipping.

Then add a calculation "ShippedItems" = [ShippingRequired] * [Quantity]

Then do your shipping rules based on the total of the "ShippedItems" instead of the total of the "Quantity" so that only shipped items are charged for.... also make sure your first rule makes sure the ShippedItems quantity is >0
