    How does one enable secure download after form submission and payment [revisited]?

    Asked by MikePreston on March 09, 2014 at 06:07 PM

    This was discussed previously at:




    To summarize, that thread said that use of an autoresponder would enable the display of a link to a user that had paid for an ebook.


    But I don't understand how just providing a link is secure.  Is there a way to establish a one-time link?  Or a link that is only good for a few hours?  Otherwise the person that bought the ebook can put their link on their facebook page and 1 million people could download the ebook.

    Hello MikePreston,

    Unfortunately, we do not have such feature where the download link can be used just one time. You can send the download link in your auto-responder and once the file is downloaded you will have to manually remove the file from the download location. Alternative option is to manage this programmatically.

    Providing a secure link will only ensure that the data transmission is secure.

    Thank you!
