Your downloads widget

You use Your downloads widget to give the opportunity to your users to download files that they have purchased. For example, when a user buys an MP3, they can download the file on the page where you drop Your downloads widget. You can put a link to this page on the confirmation page or use another way to direct the user to the page where the purchased product can be downloaded.
