Ecommerce Digital products


Senior Member
Hi all,

I have a ecommerce script that i wrote myself and I want to sell some images that people can download.

Does anyone have any tips on the best way to do this so that I can ensure people can download the file but also keep it secure from freebies?

Thanks all

with digital downloads I've usually had an email with a generated file location or web address which will delete after generally 24 hours or 5 downloads.

I've used a couple of shop 'plugins' before and never for digital downloads but I've looked into them a couple of times and it would generally be similar to Levi mentioned or alternatively restricted to that IP address.

That doesn't stop someone sharing the file after that though - the only way to do that off the top of my head anyway, would be serial numbers.

Thanks both, if they share it afterwards thats not too much of an issue, im just more concerned with how to deliver the image to them without joe bloggs being able to just go to the location and getting it.
