Reviews

Serious issues, not updated in years

There are serious breaking issues caused by this plugin. We had to migrate away from it and start serving from Amazon S3. It has not been updated in a few years.

  • Download permissions are stored as the file name instead of the ID, causing downloads to not work for long file names (https://github.com/woocommerce/woocommerce/issues/19591#issuecomment-389521039)
  • Updating a file download with a new URL breaks all download permissions to that file for all existing orders (downloads disappear). I think it’s creating a new file entry rather than updating the existing one (new files are not automatically added to existing orders for a downloadable product in WP).

Used to work fine, now leads to corrupted downloads

The plugin used to work perfectly, a seamless integration with WooCommerce.
However, as reported on the support forum, there is an issue with the plugin leading to corrupted files being download by the buyers of our digital goods.
Hope a prompt solution can be given soon, as in its current status, the plugin is creating quite a few headaches.
