By default, you can upload any file type supported by WordPress.  This includes:

  • Zip Files
    • .zip
  • Images
    • .jpg
    • .jpeg
    • .png
    • .gif
    • .ico
  • Documents
    • .pdf (Portable Document Format; Adobe Acrobat)
    • .doc.docx (Microsoft Word Document)
    • .ppt.pptx.pps.ppsx (Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation)

Be aware that depending on your hosting provider, some of these file types may be limited for security reasons.  You are also limited by your own hosting webspace and bandwidth – so if you have problems uploading larger files (e.g. video) this may be the cause.  

Problems uploading larger files

Your own file upload limit might also trigger a stop on uploading files to your file downloads.  If you go to Media > Add New at the bottom of that screen you’ll see your current site file upload limit:

You can increase this limit by changing the settings in your WP-Config file – contact your hosting company to assist with this.

To add the Checkouts Downloads to your order summary page, just follow our guide here on how to do that.
