Let your users download a freebie or a white-paper from your Shopify website.
To create a downloadable PDF in Shopify:
- Upload the file to Shopify by going to Settings > Files. Click Upload files and select your PDF.
- Copy the URL of the PDF. It should start with “https://cdn.shopify”
- Open the page you want to add the download link, create a link to this URL you just copied.
- Your link should now let a store visitor open your PDF.
Want to force it download instead of opening in the browser?
You’ll have to host it somewhere else. I recommend Dropbox. Follow Dropbox’s instructions to force download here.

You can also use third-party websites such as bit.ly
