Creating the Checkout page

A checkout page is created for you when EDD is activated, but if you delete it, or wish to move it, here are the steps.

  1. Either create a new page, or edit an existing page
  2. In the content area put in the shortcode [download_checkout]
  3. Save your page
  4. In the Admin go to Downloads → Settings → General and at the top use the dropdown box labelled "Checkout Page" to select whatever page you created.
  5. Save your settings

From then on EDD will use your new page as the checkout page.
