Works as described! I set up the api from dropbox, put in the key in the wp plugin settings, and was able to successfully send myself a test file from dropbox. A workshop I was having trouble with, finally has a way to be sold online!

This plugin is really useful if you have your WooCommerce Digital/Downloadable Products uploaded to Dropbox (e.g. PDFs, Word DOCs, MP4s etc..). It’s a much better way to supply digital files to your Customer than loading them on your own hosting. Huge thanks to the developer for getting on top of some issues that it had. Works great now! 👍👍
