Download Code Redeemer


Download Code Redeemer is a plugin that enables you to have downloads hidden away behind simple authorization.
User gets a code, enters it on your website, and the plugin starts a download.

You can create two kinds of codes – single use codes and unlimited use codes.

Download Codes are output as a downloadable CSV file, which makes it very easy to send to printshops for adding to cards or the like.

The redemption form is out via a shortcode.


  1. Install via the plugin manager
  2. Activate plugin via plugin manager
  3. Add the shortcode to any post or page. You add the shortcode via [redeemer download=”-insert id here-“] shorttag.
  4. Create and share codes.
  5. ???
  6. Profit!

Attention: Profit is not guaranteed. 😉
