Woocommerce Digital Download available without purchase (3 posts)

    Hi,
    I just realized that the digital products we are selling with our WooCommerce site are accessible and downloadable by anyone using the file path. This means someone could actually get our product without paying. Not good for business.

    We are using Delightful Downloads to manage our downloads in WooCommerce.

    Someone can help?

    Thanks!

    I'm selling some digital downloads myself, and I actually tested this out the first time I added a product

    The files get put into a separate folder, any attempts to access files within that sub-directory get a 403. Now, I'm not sure if this is added by woocommerce, but in the root of the woocommerce_uploads directory, I have an .htaccess file that just contains "deny from all"

    the link that gets sent to the customer is not a direct link to the file

    I'm not sure if you've got a bad install or something, but normally, this is not an issue.

    oh, if you're using delightful downloads, that might be your problem. woocommerce handles downloads on its own just fine, and it doesn't look like delightful downloads is intended for use where restricted downloading is required.
