Retail-you pick it up from a local store. (GAME for example)
Digital-You download it to your PC...(Can also be a console download)

Hmm, if it's a download that seems unlikely

A retail copy is 99% of the time a hard copy. A disc.

So the digital copy hasn't got a disk, If it has no disk could I download it multiple times.

I'm pretty sure you must be able to download multiple times as it's £10 more.

I think there are no extras for physical standard edition comparing to digital download.
Whatever you choose, physical or download, you'll get the code which you can redeem under your account. Once you do that, you can download the game client unlimited number of times. For example, if you buy a physical copy, you can redeem the code, download directly the latest version of the client and play without even putting the disk in your drive.
The reason companies still sell hard copies is purely psychological. People often like to have tangibly thing for their money.

I think it's time to remind people that this section is for questions regarding the website, not the game. Please take any matters regarding ESO, gameplay, purchases, opinions about it and whatever else to General Discussion.
