    Default Adding Downloads

    When adding a download to my website how do I protect it so that it can only be downloaded once and only when a customer has paid?

    Also how can a add a link to a pdf file so that my visitors can access more information to my product?

    Thank You

    Sorry, misread your post.

    To secure a download so that it is only allowed after payment, you need to use a cart script.
    Many carts (free ones also) allow for instant downloads after payment.

    Some of them can be configured to allow a certain number of downloads, or a certain period during which the same user is allowed to download. The number or the period, is, in that case, set by the administrator of the site.

    Thank you,

    also I want to add a sales letter for my product on my site, do I have to create an extra page for this or can I have a link on my home page to a pdf file that my customer can read? if so how can I achieve this?

    You can do it in whichever way you like Either through a webpage, or with a downloadable PDF.

    In this second case: Upload the file to your site, using either FTP or File Manager, or BV's file publisher.

    Create a link to the file providing as URL: http://www.yourdomain.com/filename.pdf

    The answes is the same: you need a (free or paid for) script. If you use a Cart that supports instant downloads, then your issue is easily solved. VH provides for free Soholaunch and OSCommerce that both can do what you want.
