One of the best ways to ramp up sales of your downloads when using Easy Digital Downloads is to offer all-access memberships. It’s no different from other membership levels on your site. EDD offers these and brings more value to the customer by bundling specific add-ons at various levels.
In the past, we have saved considerable money—for our clients and for ourselves—by purchasing access passes for different WordPress plugins.
How To Create an All-access Pass with Easy Digital Downloads

These are your main settings and they are global, but some can be overridden on specific downloads you set up. The first two give you an option to customize your download button text and expiration message. On the message, you can choose to have it redirect to another page instead:

One thing to note: the All Access Duration gives you specific time spans, but if you have the extension Recurring Payments in use, you will have the option to sync any All Access Pass to the subscription.
When a customer purchases the All Access Pass, a tab is added with details of the passes they have purchased. Additional information is also available giving more details: start and expiration dates, status, the settings that were set at the time of purchase (which is great if you have changed details on any full access pass) and any custom specific settings you gave as an option to override the other settings in their profile.
Commissions and All Access Info
The extension EDD Commissions easily integrates with this extension. You will be able to see single- commission breakdowns and the combined prices of all the items a customer chose to download with their All Access pass, as well the cost of the pass.
So if you are looking to grow your online sales by offering all-access passes, this is a slick way to easily set them up using Easy Digital Downloads.
