    PayPal can not send download links, but it can notify your servers when the payment has been made.

    When successful transaction has been made PayPal will post a bunch of info to the URL you specify. Starting from name, address, payment type and ending with email.

    So you should ask a programmer to make a system for IPN (instant payment notification).
    Not too complicated just need to know how this system works. Ask him to send the email after transaction with download URL.

    You can also specify the return page when payment has been made which is a lot of easier, but then everyone who knows a lit bit of this system can just easily look at the code and grab the download link without paying.
