    Hi folks, I am wondering if there is an existing plugin / WooCommerce Add-on that will help me with the following;

    i need to offer digital movie tickets for sale online via a woocommerce site.

    the tickets are in the form of a very long URL, for example (actual ones are much longer);

    
    www.ticketcompanyname.com.au/ticketid00112233
    www.ticketcompanyname.com.au/ticketid00112244
    www.ticketcompanyname.com.au/ticketid00112266
    www.ticketcompanyname.com.au/ticketid00112255
    

    Each ticket is unique and only good for one download.

    I need a customer to be able to select the number of tickets they’d like to buy and then be directed to the digital downloads page (after payment) to download their unique ID.

    i will have a spreadsheet of these URLs that will live in an SQL table.

    What i need is a product that manages the inventory of these digital tickets and assigns them one time only to a customer.

    Once the ticket has been sold, it can’t be seen again.

    has anyone had any experience in selling products like this which are essentially a URL?

    regards

    Tony

    Hi there,

    I imagine you’d like to sell a product that provides a unique URL to each purchasing customer.

    One plugin I’ve found that might be helpful is WooCommerce License Delivery & Management:

    https://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-license-delivery-managment/16006011

    I haven’t personally tested that plugin so you may want to reach out to support of that plugin prior to purchase in order to find out if it will provide the functionality you need.

    Otherwise, this looks like a fairly complex development topic.

    One workaround I can think of is to create a variable product where each downloadable variation has its own downloadable product link and a stock quantity of 1.

    Variations and unique URLs can then be imported using the default import/export functionality:

    https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/product-csv-importer-exporter/

    The inconvenient part of this workaround is the fact that your customers will have to choose a variation from the dropdown.

    If that doesn’t sound right to you – most likely you’ll have to get a plugin such as one linked at the beginning of this reply or hire a developer to get this kind of functionality coded for you.

    I can also recommend the following places for more development-oriented questions:

    * WooCommerce Slack Community: 
    https://woocommerce.com/community-slack/
    * Advanced WooCommerce group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/advanced.woocommerce/
