File Downloads

Download Method

Servers can use different methods of telling the browser the download should be saved rather than attempting to display it. This option gives you a choice in how your server delivers the item to the browser. See What is the difference between Forced Download and Redirect Download? for more details on this setting.

File Download Limit

When a customer purchases an item, by default they can download it as many times as they'd like. This option limits that, so a download URL will expire after a certain number of uses. This value can be over-written on a per-item basis, so you can use it on some items and not others.

For example, a download limit of 5 allows the customer to download each file 5 times.

You can provide customers with an additional download by resending the purchase receipt from the Payment History window. Doing this will increment the download limit by one.

Download Link Expiration

This allows you to set a certain number of hours in which the customer may download the item from that specific URL after purchase.

Disable Redownload?

This option hides the download link on the customer's Account page. If they keep their receipt they'll still be able to download from there, so if it's vital they not be allowed to download later you should also set the File Download Limit to 1 or set a short Download Link Expiration.
