    Maybe this isn't something JotForm can accomplish. But Let's say I wrote an ebook or pdf paper and want to sell it online. Is there a way to make the custom Thank You pages with a link to download the ebook/pdf appear ONLY to those who have paid (preferably via PayPal)? I wouldn't want someone to stumble across the URL and get it that way.

    Alternatively, is it possible to send an autoresponse email that only gets sent after payment is confirmed, that includes the ebook/pdf as an attachment? This solution is less than ideal, but I may be able to live with it.

    Hello Jeremy

    This is possible with JotForm's simple autoresponder email. Just add the download link of your hosted file and when somebody pays they get the email with the download link in it. Do you know how to make an Auto Reply email or would you like instructions?

    Have A Great Day!

    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.
