We've built our website selling online courses around EDD and we're very happy with it. Users can purchase the courses at different price tiers and download their course materials easily. It is fully compatible with the other main plugins we're using (for example Learndash and Gamipress), and it supports multi-currency and Paddle checkout. The support is very reactive, helpful and excellent overall. Highly recommended!
