Is there any way to integrate the manual “generate encrypted link” option in eStore with PDF stamper? Now the scrren just asks for the Product ID … I can’t see a way to point the process to the stamped and generated eBook.

The PDF stamper will need specific customer information which is only available at the time of purchase so the manual link generation from the admin functions menu can’t stamp the PDF file. We can add another option that will allow you to specify some text at the time of link generation. This text will be stamped in the file (Similar to the manual PDF stamping function) and then it will generate the encrypted link.January 20, 2012 at 7:51 am #40916
That might work. I just use the name and the email.
I don’t mind a 2 step process. Generate a stamped and encrypted PDF and then copy and paste the URL of that document to eStore instead of the product id in the Admin Functions part.January 20, 2012 at 1:19 pm #40917
You can do a 2 step process right now.
1. Manual stamp the PDF file with whatever content you want (the customer’s name and email address for example)
2. Create a temporary eStore product and use the URL of the stamped PDF file created in step 1.
3. Generate an encrypted link for the product you created in step 2. You can give this encrypted link to your customers.
You can also keep this product you created in step 2 in case you want to do the same thing in the future… you will just have to change the value in the “Digital Product URL” field of that product before you generate an encrypted link.January 20, 2012 at 7:19 pm #40918
Thanks … that works
You are soooo smart!!!

Is there a way the ‘We can add another option that will allow you to specify some text at the time of link generation. This text will be stamped in the file (Similar to the manual PDF stamping function) and then it will generate the encrypted link.’ can be implemented? I’d be so grateful!March 13, 2015 at 1:15 pm #40920wzpModerator
There have been “hacks” that allow things like this…
…But unless you are an experienced PHP programmer, it’s best if you request a custom work order quote.
As I stated in the first referenced thread, we do not “rescue you,” if you attempt this DIY hack.March 14, 2015 at 12:33 am #40921
The stamped PDF file is a temporary file (just like an encrypted link). So instead of generating an encrypted link then giving that link out, go to the manual stamping and stamp it then give that link out (it has the same effect).March 18, 2015 at 3:34 pm #40922
Great stuff – thanks for your help!March 18, 2015 at 3:36 pm #40923
…just a follow up question. With manual stamping, is there a way to manually stamp the ‘text’ but to also lock the file with a password?March 18, 2015 at 11:14 pm #40924wpCommerceModerator
@bulbaroo, Have you specified a file password in the settings? If you specify a password in the settings then it will use that password when you do the manual stamping.March 19, 2015 at 10:37 am #40925
The issue is that I want subscribers to have email address password protection (using auto stamping) then a seperate manual stamping for one-off purchases to have password protection – it doesn’t seem possible to have password protection of email on auto and a given password protection on manual?March 19, 2015 at 9:54 pm #40926
You can change the settings to do the manual stamp then change it back to the email password option. The manual stamping is something you do in the event of a failure so you shouldn’t need to do this many times.
