Ability to download ZIP files from a Webflow site

I have many clients who would like to have zip file download functionality on their websites for things like employment application packets, brand kits(logo files, brand guides), and press kits.

It seems for now only certain image files, PDFs and Microsoft Office files are allowed to be downloaded from Webflow created websites.

Not having this feature has been a deal breaker from a lot of web design projects that are requested by clients

Admin Note:
At this time assets such as Zip files will need to be hosted externally and linked to from your Webflow site to provide downloads.

    Agreed. My client has CAD files in .zip that need to be made available. It looks unprofesional to have the links redirect to Dropbox.

    Ditto - building a site for a new client where their clients can download plugins and now discover I can't upload those files. Major embarrassment. They feel it looks unprofessional to send their customers elsewhere to get the plugins.

    Hi, I wonder if there's any progress on this request please. Very handy feature to give ability for users to download zipped files. I would need this for an e-commerce website for a client selling digital products. This is the only way her clients can purchase the items.

    Yes. I need this for client to be able to download image files for their logo from a styleguide (EPS, PDF, GIF, JPG, PNG SVG). I know most of these can work, but the most important EPS and PDF does not.

    This is really essential, how is it not possible yet?!

    Can someone from Webflow provide an update on this request from 2018?

    Webflow is my favorite tool to build and host websites, but like many others, my client wants site visitors to be able to download a media KIT. Not a single file, but a folder of files. I don't want to have to use a work around. Can we get this feature added ASAP????

    Ugh I was so disapointed to learn that this is not an available feature. I'm building social media toolkits for multiple clients' sites at the moment and they're going to be super disapointed (if not pissed) when I tell them we have to create a google drive or dropbox to house their toolkits. This seems like it should be a super easy accomodation, no?

    This is a must have! Working on a clients website and need to attach press kits with multiple files, it seems strange to have to link to a google drive file.

    I super need this. I have zip file of example homework for a class I run. Seems slightly ridiculous to just host the zip some place else.

    I can upload PDF, DOC and PPT all separately, but I can't bundle them and upload them all together. This is sad...

    Why is this not a thing yet??? Wix, wordpress, squarespace all have this feature. Webflow is supposed to be superior but it cannot handle zip file downloads? Ridiculous.

    Has this been resolved as yet? I need to have a media kit with logos (EPS, JPG and PNG formats) to be downloaded? Do I need to store these logos in Google Drive and then paste a link to that? Or has Webflow done something about this? It truly is a deal breaker!

    Need this feature for an enterprise client! When clients ready to pay good money for a reliable and useful solution and very basics are not covered it feels quite frustrating. Hey Webflow, we are trying hard to sell your product and bring you more users. Please, help us to help you.

    I also don't understand this restrictions. Media downloads are a very common thing. I don't mind if there is a size restriction of like 10MB or something, but at least let us host it on there like the other assetts. What is the reason behind this restriction? Webflow works in mysterious ways and I will make a guess and say they will reply to it in about 2 years or so.. :/

    Seems like a few minutes of work for a programmer to enable this... Don't understand

    It's ridiculous honestly... and for a really expensive hosting by the way...

    I just purchased a subscription to Webflow and am in shock that such a basic feature is not included. Please get this up and running ASAP please. It's essential for many clients.
