Today, I’m extremely excited to share that all Sandhills Development products are joining Awesome Motive, and they’re now part of the WPBeginner family of products.
These brands are very close to my heart because when I first started selling premium plugins in 2013, we used Easy Digital Downloads, and we still use EDD to power our eCommerce.
This is one of those rare life moments where things have come full circle, and I honestly feel like I’m living in a dream.
Introduction – Quick Overview of the Plugins

Easy Digital Downloads makes it easy for you to sell digital products online such as eBooks, digital art, premium software, and just about any type of digital files.

Sugar Calendar is a simple events calendar plugin for WordPress. It makes it easy to do event management, ticketing, and everything you need to manage / run an event. It also seamlessly integrates with WooCommerce, Stripe, and other solutions so you can sell event tickets and accept payments on your site.

And most importantly, the entire team is also joining Awesome Motive, and we’re extremely excited because there are so many talented individuals that I have always admired for years who I’ll now get to work with on a daily basis.
In 2013, when I launched OptinMonster, I needed a solution that made it easy for me to sell the premium plugin (digital download), restrict access & updates to only paying members, and most importantly accept recurring payments.
We ended up using Easy Digital Downloads because it helped us do all of that and more.
Even the popular WordPress plugins we later acquired / invested in through the WPBeginner Growth Fund like Smash Balloon, SearchWP, Uncanny Automator, Formidable Forms, etc all used Easy Digital Downloads.
