In the WordPress admin, in the left admin bar is a Downloads menu.  Under that is a Settings menu.  When you click it, the first screen you come to is the General Settings for Easy Digital Downloads.

This page has three sections, General SettingsCurrency Settings, and API Settings.

Page Settings #

Checkout Page #

This is the checkout page where buyers will complete their purchases. The [download_checkout] short code must be on this page.

This is the page buyers are sent to after completing their purchases. The [edd_receipt] shortcode should be on this page.

This page shows a complete purchase history for the current user, including download links. This page requires either the [purchase_history] OR [download_history] shortcode.

Login Redirect Page #

This option provides a list of existing Pages. A chosen page becomes the destination after a user logs in using a form created by [edd_login].

Location Settings #

EDD asks two questions about the location for the purposes of making it easier for your customers to get through the checkout form.  These location options are set as default in the checkout page.  NOTE: if the customer has a saved profile with a different location, that location with over-ride anything you may save here.
