About selling one-time products with Paddle
One-time products are digital products that customers purchase and pay for once - for example, software with a lifetime license.
When creating one-time products in Paddle, you can choose from a range of fulfillment methods, depending on how you wish to deliver the product to your customers. You can:
- Upload your digital product to Paddle, then provide a download link and instructions to customers when payment succeeds.
- Host your digital product outside of Paddle, then provide a download link and instructions to customers when payment succeeds.
If your products require a license code, you can:
- Upload a static list of license codes to Paddle, which are sent to customers with download instructions.
- Wait for Paddle to confirm successful payment for an order (via a fulfillment webhook), then generate a license code dynamically - returning it to Paddle for onward communication to the customer.
In Paddle, one-time products are created and managed in your Paddle catalog.
