    I am selling a digital product that I do not want to be shared all over.
    Do any of the download sites allow a one time use download link or anything of that nature?

    What I want is to provide the link once and after someone has used it to get the item, it can't be used again at all.

    I know "delete the file after it's used" a sort of solution but say I have someone affiliates selling my product and when they sell, they provide the DL link to someone. That means both the affiliate and the person they sold to will have it for x amount of time.

    I want to be able to say to the affiliate. Don't use it yourself or you won't be able to provide it to the buyer.

    Is there any way to do this?

    Hire a coder from rentacoder.com or any other freelance site to make you a PHP+MySQL system. Is pretty easy.

    when you donĀ“t want your product shared all over why do you want to uplaod it per torrent then?
    or did you post in the wrong section?

    Agreed.

    Pretty simple to do, just want a unique hash that allows a download e.g domain.com?downloadid=<insert one time use md5 hash or similar here>

    then tick it off in the database as "downloaded".

    md5 hash of the transaction id recorded in the db then used as activation code for download and once used once mark it is expired in the db.

    Ok. this is beyond me. I thought maybe there was a program that would do it. Maybe one ofthe download sites would have something integrated.
    I could always hire someone to do it from one of the freelance sites.

    Hey Brian, there you might want to take a look at the wordpress plugin "PHPurchase". There are some nulled versions out there. This might help you out as it does provide 1 time download links. You might have to give it a few tests to get it the way you want it.

    Good luck.

    I will look into that. It sounds like the type of "plug and play" solution that I am looking for.

    If you don't want to get into technical stuff you can just use e-junkie. small fees and does what you require and payments go directly into your paypal.

    eJunkie works with Wordpress too, so that may be the option if it is an all in one plug-and-play solution. But is it independent of eJunkie.com? I don't want them to have any say whatsoever. Like if I was doing porn or torrents.
    Not that I am, but you know what I mean? I want 110% control.

    Well, They won't know unless someone reports you. Both ways you will be using paypal which falls under the same terms and you are going against both of them.

    OK. Well I am really only interested in the download protection. Could I use eJunkie to provide someone with a one time DL link without making a sale through the site that I would have eJunkie installed on?
