The way my customers get my pdf files is through membership.
1- They become a member and pay with eStore installed on my wp site,
2- They can access the pdf files when they access their lessons
3- Auto upgrade is set to that they get new pdf’s for each new lessons.
can I use this model (using wishlist-member and eMember) with PDF stamper ? If so, how specifically ?
Thank you for your answer.

The PDF stamper needs the customer details before it can stamp the PDF file. If you are offering PDF files for downloads then the PDF stamper has no way of knowing which member is downloading what (remember you don’t have a separate PDF file for every member).
The download button needs to be integrated with PDF stamper so when it is clicked it passes the member in formation which will allow the PDF stamper to stamped the file and then let the member download the stamped version of the file.
I can do something similar if used with eStore and eMember as I know how to pass the member info to PDF stamper. It will be something similar to the secure download button that you can create with eStore and eMember:August 16, 2010 at 7:10 pm #23387AswadMember
Thanks for your time.
So, if I understand well, all I need to do is :
1- Create a dowlaod page for each membership level that contain a PDF to be downloaded.
2- Then I use wp-eStore to create a download button which wil work with pdf stamper.
I think I have seen the explainations to create a free download button somewhere on the site. Is it what you recommend ?
thank you for your help.

Yep, if you do that then I can extend the functionality of the “Download Now” button that you will create with eStore so it passes the member info to the PDF Stamper when someone clicks the “Download Now” button. This will make the PDF Stamper stamp the pdf file then let the member download the file.December 7, 2010 at 2:52 pm #23389westcowebMember
Hi, having reviewed the available documentation including this post which details my current scenario with a membership site; I purchased PDF Stamper at the weekend and set everything up as described here;
PDF file uploaded to Media Library
Manual test performed which works perfectly (downloaded file has been stamped)
Setup protected download page on membership site
Setup e-Store download button with PDF Stamper enabled under add-ons
Added download button to membership page
Tested under my super-admin membership level which has access to everything.
PDF downloaded; however the footer area is not stamped.
I have obviously missed a step somewhere and reviewing the available documentation has left me none the wiser.
Can you please advise next steps in resolving this…

If you read all the posts in this thread you will see that the last post says the following:
"If you do that then I can extend the functionality of the "Download Now" button that you will create with eStore so it passes the member info to the PDF Stamper."
Which indicates it is something that can be implemented. Its not something that is already in the product. The features of the product is listed on the features page:
If you are keen to get this functionality then I will look into it.December 8, 2010 at 8:31 am #23391westcowebMember
Thanks for your reply; since Aswad had indicated the need for such functionality and you agreed with him a process for setting up the file for stamping in the membership area. I took the last comment to read that if everything was set up as indicated; then you would extend the functionality to match Aswad’s expressed need at that point in time.
As the post was three months old; I took it that the new functionality was already in place in the latest versions of the e-store/ e-member products.
Apologies; I should have checked with you directly before purchasing.
Can you please add this to the wish-list for the products and if possible give some indication of a time-line for implementation.

This is what I plan to add…
1. Create a shortcode similar to the following:
2. This new shortcode does everything the above one does but in addition it stamps the PDF file with the member’s details.
Will that work for you?January 10, 2011 at 11:50 am #23393yungosanMember
Hello Amin, May i know is this function ready? my site also allow member only to download the pdf files with stamping feature.
Thank you.January 11, 2011 at 7:29 am #23394
Yeah I have added this feature in the eStore extra shortcodes plugin. Download the latest version of eStore extra shortcodes plugin from here:
Then you will be able to use the following shortcode:
1 is the ID of the product. When a logged in member uses this button to download the the file it will stamp it using the details from eMember’s member info and serve the download.January 5, 2018 at 9:17 pm #23395sgstylesMember
I have installed wp estore and pdf stamper
I add the link [wp_eStore_download_now_button_with_stamping id=1] to a protected download page and am now getting that eMember needs to be installed….January 5, 2018 at 11:31 pm #23396adminKeymaster
That is a shortcode that requires user info (which comes from the logged in user’s data). Every shortcode has a purpose and usage instructions. Which documentation are you following? What are you trying to do?
When it comes to stamping a PDF file, the users info (data to be stamped) has to come from somewhere. For example: When someone purchase an estore product, the PDF file is stamped immediately after the purchase with the data from the paypal transaction. So ask yourself what are you trying to stamp and where is the data going to come from for that stamp?
Maybe you are looking for the feature that stamps visitor info to a PDF file when eStore’s squeeze form is submitted (it uses the name and email from the squeeze form to stamp the file):
