Sorry if this question has already been covered. Is there any way to automatically send each existing customer a unique encrypted download link that expires after 2 downloads? We are using this plugin to manage our WordPress theme sales, and when we make an update to our theme we would love to be able to automatically push a new download link just like the customer receives when they first make the purchase. Is there any way to do this, or any chance that this is a feature you guys are working on?May 4, 2011 at 5:29 am #32015amin007Participant
You can use the eStore extra shortcodes plugin and use the following shortcode on a page which gives your clients the ability to help themselves:
You find the extra shortcodes plugin here:
The other option is for you to generate a time limited only encrypted link and send it to all of your customers (you cannot limit this one by the number of downloads because this one link will be used by all of your customers until the link expires)May 4, 2011 at 5:12 pm #32016SeizedPropagandaMember
I came across that shortcode, which is a great feature. However a customer could use it to generate dozens of new download links and give them to whomever they want, which we don’t want happening.
Is there a way to generate such a link that doesn’t use the global settings? Under the Digital Product Delivery Settings we already have it set on 24 hours and 2 downloads per link for new customers, and I could not find a way to generate a link using alternate settings.May 5, 2011 at 1:44 am #32017amin007Participant
Nope, You can just turn off the limit option for 24 hours to allow your customers to download the products then turn it back on.
I think What you really need is the following:
A script that will iterate the customer’s database table and generate a download link for each customer and send an email to that customer.
You have to be a little careful here because if you have a lot of customer then sending so many individual emails may trigger in a block from your hosting account (some hosting have limit on how many emails you can send per day so you just need to check with your hosting provider before you go down this path).May 15, 2013 at 4:34 am #32018Russell58Member
I downloaded the Addon plugin for Members Only Button and installed and activated it but I didn’t see any tab in the e-store settings panel for “Members Only Button” as appears in the screenshot from the Installation and usage PDF guide. Then I noticed that I had to download and install the Extra Shortcodes plugin which I did and now it works perfectly.
This adds a very handy and practical function for my site members now in that they can login directly to their level product page and download the file as may be required.
Great feature – Great plugin!
