adding a quantity to an e-product

Recommended Posts

Looking for help writing a custom code for a client's ebook.  I have already talked to customer support and they could not provide a solution.  I have a client I designed a website for supplying teachers/schools with an e-book (text book) for students. The client needs a way for the schools to be able to pay/purchase multiples of the book.  I understand that because it is a digital PDF, the system doesn't see a need for allowing multiple quantities to be purchased since once you download the file onto a computer it can be shared, which is fine, but because they are providing it for multiple students, I need a way for them to "pay" per book each semester as they would do if purchasing a hard copy.  In short ( although actually long), I just need to write a custom code that allows multiples copies of the book to be paid for as it is when purchasing a physical copy of something in the cart.  Hope this makes sense, thank you for any and all help!

Some other platforms like SendOwl support this, but it isn't possible on Squarespace. 

A customer will be able to purchase multiples if you add the product as a 'Service' product, but the product will not be sent automatically. If the product is added as a 'Digital' product for automatic download, the customer can only purchase one. On Squarespace, it isn't possible to change this, with code or anything else.
