wzp and admin, thank you very much for your help and advice. I am really satisfied with the plugin and the support.
My source folder is outside wp-content in a dedicated folder, with empty index.html and htaccess (deny from all), no links are directed to the pdfs. The plugin is able to access the folder. So i understand my security configuration is OK. Thanks again!

I discovered the sources of my Paypal integration problems.
1- I did not know that it was necessary to activate IPN for my domain in the PayPal console. You should update your documentation on that.
2- Because I was testing the plugin with two new Paypal accounts (one for selling and another for buying), the funds were not immediately transferred causing the plugin to interrupt the stamping (because the cash transfer was not confirmed). I discovered that problem in the plugin logs with the debug mode enabled. The plugin is working as expected now.
However, my security concerns remains. What should I do to protect the folder that contains the pdfs (books) and to
I have uninstalled iThemes and prevent direct access.
So my suggestions are:
1-Include a comment in the documentation that the activation of PayPal IPN is needed (it may be obvious for you but not for your commercial clients, “newbies”, like me).
2-Include in the documentation comments explaining that because the first transactions with a new paypal account may suffered from Paypal controls, reading the log files in debug mode is critical to understand what happens.
3-Include detailed comments on security in order to prevent direct access and google search indexing pdfs.
I would appreciate if someone may explain the procedure to prevent google indexing of the pdf files that are located in the source folder.
