ok, thanks amin. please update my email address as I would not like to be missing on future updates of all three mods.
can you please resend the email to order[at]kar2nz.com? Actually my bro (sohail kamran) is away and I am not sure the link will be valid when he comes back and forward me your email. Is it possible?
oh, thank you very much amin. So I need to install the module again or is there any single file which can do that? I mean adding this option. And where can I download this?
nah, email would not be convenient. They click on the link and go to another page with the encrypted download link.
Amin, I can you please let me know if this is possible? or when you can implement such a feature?
well, after reading your solution again, I think I now got it. silly me.
khair, this is exactly what I was suggesting in the second bullet of my above post except I think member should be taken to a download page instead of getting the link on the email. Imagine if you have over 25 products and you will have to go to your email every time you wanted to download them.
Sorry amin but I am afraid I did not quite understand what you mean. Let me rephrase my need if that could help. I also have stream lined a few things a bit to make it simple.
I want to run a subscription site where my members are being automatically charged for the subscription term and become inactive if they cancel it. This part can be managed through eMember very well.
Now the second part, I have a few products which I want that only active subscribers be able to download for FREE. So I do not want to give any direct link to the downloads. But I do want to give a download area to my users. Now eStore does offer subscription payment and wonderful secure links but I do not have any way to put these secure links to the download area for the subscribed term.
If I some how disable the expiration, there would be no point having them encrypted as any one would still be able to download the products by accessing them directly. So what I was thinking
1 – if some how we could have a validation check to see if the user is logged-in or not and if logged-in let him download the product. I know this could get a be bit complicated as the download is being managed by eStore and validation is in eMember.
2 – alternatively, we could allow eStore to create free products. Free products can have a download link which will bypass all the payment process (cart, checkout, paypal, IPN,) and take the user directly to the thank you page with the actual download link which will be dynamic and will expire after a set time. And this sound less complicated to me than the above solution.
Anyways, please let me know if this is something you can manage adding in the plugin.
What if that person is already a customer? I mean if we already have his email in the customer’s database?
Would this be added as a new customer or simply product id would be appended to his purchases?
Can we remove the need of adding the email address as we will already be having that detail (as customer details while signing up with eMember). Just needed a way to generate a download link for products.
And I totally understand how we can add a download area for different membership levels. But can we add downloads on user basis in their home page.
I think I should better explain my shop idea and you could let me know if we can go with your plugins combination.
We have around 30 products. We want to sell them individually as well as all for flat yearly subscription price. So we need a download area where our members could download their purchased product or subscribed products anytime they want. still the product should be secure enough to not be able to be shared in public. So a download area with expire-able download links (like free squeeze page product links depending upon the purchased product or membership level) would provide best security.
So can you please let me know if this is something we can achieve with your plugins.
Thanks for the reply Amin, I completely understand your situation.
I actually desperately in love with wordpress and do not want to use any other option.
Squeeze page idea looks nice. I will have a look at it and may get a few more questions. One comes on top of my head is if I can put a button to “download” the product on a squeeze page and every time one clicks, it generates a new download link for that. as on second thought i like the expiry link idea better.
or alternatively, can I have products with zero price? I mean free products which only my eMembers would be able to order and get the expiring download link.
I am still waiting amin. Would really appreciate any words from you on it. It is perfectly fine even if you say “NO” to these requests. I would not start arguing for a refund or anything like that.
just want to make sure if this combination would or can better suite to my needs even if not right now or a possible time frame. Just want to make a decision over here.
thank you very much!
Amin, can i please get some feedback on above?

well you can keep wp member table intact and still manage a table for eMembers with your own fields. I mean why you can’t add a field of username/userid of the wp table as a reference id/name to your eMember table and add all additional/required fields to it.
they can still take the product and share it where ever they want.
Is it possible to let them generate the link themselves? For example if they are members of the site using eMember?
I want to ask a domain name from the user. Can I add that in the registration form?
