Requirement to add email address before downloading a file

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://inverroy.squarespace.com/

Hi All, 

Apologies if this isn't in the correct area but I couldn't see where to put it. I am trying to add a button that allows people to get a free digital download but only if they enter their email address first. I could do it under commerce and make the product free but they have to enter their full postal address for that and I'm pretty sure we'll lose people as a result. Other web sites I've seen let you click the link to the download and take you to a pop-up that requires your email address to continue which is what I want.  Any ideas please?  

Thanks in advance, 

Paynester

You can do it in a number of ways:

  • Use a form (or newsletter block) to collect their email address, and provide the link to the download on the post-submit page. The downside with this option is that they could input a fake email address and they'd still see the download link.
  • Use a form to collect their email address, send their details to a mailing list service (such as MailChimp) and configure the mailing service to email them the link.
