In those projects, sellers want to list digital files.

Does Sharetribe provide a way to host and sell digital files?

Sharetribe does not currently have direct support for selling digital files. This means that there is no functionality that would automatically allow the buyer to download a file after making a purchase.

Alternative solutions: host the file on another service and share link

With that approach, the seller must send the file after the payment is confirmed. They can host it on a third party service (Dropbox, Google Drive...) and share the link in the transaction conversation.
This is comparable to sending physical items: once a purchase is confirmed, the sold good is sent by the seller.

Will this feature be available in the future?

Better digital product support is occasionally asked for. It is likely that it will be added at some point, but we unfortunately don't have a precise timetable for it at this point.
