Product Variations – how to offer both physical product & digital download?

I’m trying to offer both an audio CD and an mp3 download as product variations in MarketPress, but can’t figure out how. First off, if I offer a download, I can’t add any variations. And if I could list both “Audio CD” and “MP3 Download” as variations, there’s no way I can see to link the download to the MP3 variation. Am I missing something, or is there perhaps a clever workaround anyone’s figured out?

As it stands, seems like I’ll have to create separate product listings for the CD and the MP3, which is less than ideal…

    Hi mbbarron and first off, welcome to WPMU DEV!

    Currently there’s not a way to provide variations along with downloads. At this time, probably the best way to do this would be to create separate products as you’ve mentioned.

    I’m not aware of any specific workaround for that, I’m afraid. We’ll gladly take into account any specifics you might have in mind as to how you think it would best work.
