    The easiest way is to use a download link protector that integrates with Paypal. Something like DLGuard - Download page protector, create expiring download links

    What Will said, or...

    To make them "secure" (and nothing is 100% safe) you hide them in a folder/folders with obscure names and send the paid up customer to that place by including it in when you make your paypal button. Example, yoursite . com /abcdefg/hijklmnop/qrstuv/987/987/987. Make the download link a graphic with all the info on it so SEs won't find it.
    Never name a folder "thankyou" or "download" etc.

    Or better, use e-junkie or WarriorPlus. Makes things much easier.

    You can take them to a thankyou page and ask people to enter their email address to receive the download link. Then you can send them the download page in the followup email. But either way, you are still going to need a page that has the download link on it. I wouldn't suggest attaching the product to an email as some spam filters get a little bit iffy with emails containing attachments.

      But they can copy the link to download page and can download that later also or give the link to their friend.. anything possible to protect that?

        Yes, exactly. That is why I told you to use something like DLGuard - Download page protector, create expiring download links. If you want to protect your links then you will need to use something like that. You can still ask them to submit their email on your download page though.

            If you want to do it free then just create a download link with a weird url like the person above suggested...

            something like downloadpage_bndhfrkrjdjos-ols.html

            Then just make sure you change the url every week or so. No one will be interested sharing a link like that, and if they do, since you are changing it every week it won't really matter.

            Besides, what you are forgetting is that anyone who wants to share you product will do so anyway. All they need to do is download it and then post the actual product wherever they want. There are Black-Hat forums out there that literally share most of the IM products that are released these days. They are all secured in membership areas but nothing can stop people sharing the content if they really want to. They even figure out ways to share most software as well - software that usually requires a serial number, etc.

            Spend less time worrying about this and more time getting new customers to your business and all will be fine.

    Are you using wordpress? because yes your first option is to make a weird url thank you page, but also you should make your page non indexed..... this way no one will be able to find it in the search engine. Once you get few bucks you should then invest in DLGuard. Also it would be a good idea to change your thank page url every two weeks or so if you can.....

    I say make the page non indexable because last year I was just playing around with internet and I found someones thank you page from clickbank all I will say is that he is in the dog niche....... and he has pretty high gravity..... I was pretty shocked if you ask me that I found his page his thank you page in the search engine.

    It depends how big your product is. You can make it an attachment in aweber, or whatever you autoresponder is. Then you don't have to worry about download links.

    I do have to say that once you have the money, DLGuard is amazing and totally worth it. Flawless integration with clickbank, paypal etc.
