There is already module File downloads in the ubercart which allow user to sell file with the product.

  • Install the module File downloads from the module list.

Assigning directory to file donwload:

  • Go to Administration -> Store -> Configuration -> Product
  • In the File download settings section, set the path of the directory of the files and save the form.

Uploading files: - Go to Administration -> Store -> Products -> View file downloads - Upload files into directory (which you have configured in above step) using upload file action.

Adding files to product:

  • Edit your product and you will get the feature link in top of page. click on this link.
  • In feature form, you can add file download feature to the product and it will redirect you to form to assign file to product.
  • Select file name in File download text field. This is autocomplete field, so you need to configure correct files and save form.

When the user purchase product and pay the amount, it will send a link to user in his mail to download the files.

Regarding your second question, there is module Ubercart Marketplace.

Ubercart Marketplace adds multiple seller support to the Ubercart module. It includes a series of modules that limit the access to Ubercart functions for sellers. Additional functionality is added to support this from both a marketplace seller's point of view and the store administrator's view. Sellers (with the proper access permissions) gain the ability to view their products, track and fulfill their orders, and monitor their sales reports. Store administrators can view seller reports based on seller order statuses and seller sales. Support is included for Paypal Mass Payments, with which an administrator can automatically pay his/her sellers for custom periods.

Kindly see that Ubercart marketplace is still in development version for Drupal 7, so may be there could be some issue in this module.

  • In feature form, you can add file download feature to the product and it will redirect you to form to assign file to product. Select file name in File download text field. This is autocomplete field, so you need to configure correct files and save form. All this in drupal 6 or drupal 7 ? because in drupal7 i cant find those things. Nov 28 '13 at 5:30
  • This is for Druapl 7. Have you installed module `file downloads'? Nov 28 '13 at 5:31
  • yeah.. i got tat autocomplete field for file download. but its throwing me this error Error message sites/default/files/new.png is not a valid file or directory inside file download directory. In the file downloads i have given this path(sites/default/files), File download settings also uploading files gave same directory. Nov 28 '13 at 5:44
  • @NewToDrupal, Your file download directory should be different to sites/default/files directory. Nov 28 '13 at 5:46

There are so many tutorials available, i found it by Googling

Many stores online deal in digital goods. Known Ubercart sites are already selling music, photos, movies, and more using the core file download system. Large sites like Riff Trax and corporations like AOL are using this system to sell and distribute files. Props go to early community member CpILL for getting the ball rolling and torgosPizza for his extensive testing and use of the system. Its creation was and its improvement continues to be a community effort.
