Ebook Store

Description

The pro version is capable of encrypting the ebooks upon download or email delivery. It supports PDF, ePub, TXT, Mobi and Zip files.

eBook store now supports integration with WooCommerce so you can add ebook store items to your WooCommerce products and let customers download ebooks from the checkout complete page. The PDF encryption and watermarking works well and will use the customer data to watermark the ebook which is a proven method to prevent piracy.

Is there a demo somewhere?

Yes there is: http://wp.shopfiles.com/?p=116

Sample thank you page and encrypted PDF

Here you can see how the encrypted PDF will look like. It contains QR code watermark with buyer info and watermark in the header with copyright data and buyer info again.

Are there translations?

Yes, the front-end of the software is translated to: English, German, French, Spanish, Hindi, Chinese and Russian. More translations are coming.

Are there any limitations?

The Free version can not encrypt PDF files and put watermarks. For this you need the $20 full version UPGRADE from http://www.shopfiles.com/index.php/products/wordpress-ebook-store

What does it do? 

It will let you sell your ebooks in a very stylish and secure way. It’s PRO version is the only extension for WordPress that allows encryption of the sold eBooks, by putting passwords and watermarks / print protection to the PDF files for sale.

How it works?

Very easy and intuitive! All you need to do is upload a book with its cover’s information and put a price on it. Once you do that you can copy paste the book embed code to place it inside the article. Once you have done that please make sure you have filled in your PayPal account where you want to receive the payments.

How to contact support?
