shasum doesn't match sha256 when creating shasum for file

I downloaded the installer and signature.

I used the command shasum -a 256 and then dragged and dropped the installer into the terminal.

I get a different ShA256 than the one on your website.

How should I proceed?

    Hi Peter,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry to hear you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    From your screenshot it looks as if you are creating the shasum for the signature file, not the dmg. Please retry using the correct file and let us know if you then receive the expected result.

    Hope this helps,
