With having this addon we can enroll the user into the LifterLMS courses and memberships on purchasing the EDD download. We can also enroll the user into the multiple courses on purchasing a single download.
LifterLMS have not included the basic payment gateway such as Paypal, it only has a manual payment gateway by default. To use the Paypal and other payment gateways we need to purchase that payment addons while EDD has a Paypal Standard gateway by default. By enabling this addon we can use EDD default payment gateway that is Paypal Standard to purchase the course.
