    There's a great video at the Daily Motion website Jeremiah showing how to do just that. I would include the link but I don't have enough posts yet so I'm not permitted. If you do a search on their website I'm sure you'll find it. Hope this helps

    I use Download Guard. It's kind of pricey but worth it if you're going to do very many WSO's or other things you need to have a download protection for.

    Good luck on your WSO!!

    There's another active thread (at -- might be some good ideas there.

    Digital product protection is actually a matter of risk management. You have to identify what you are trying to accomplish (limit access to legit buyers? prevent non-buyers from accessing the product?) and then find ways to mitigate (reduce) the risk. Some risks you won't be able to mitigate, either because they cost too much or you aren't willing to implement the control (for example, DRM may cause you to lose sales due to inconvenience).

    In the end, though, you will still face some risk that you'll just have to accept. You can adjust your price as compensation for taking the risk, if you want...

    Of course, you can also use a service like Warrior Plus that offer some protection (plus it's designed for WSOs).

    I use DLGuard. You can use it for as many products as you want. Great software and great customer service. Highly recommended.

    This is going to be your quickest and easiest solution:
    Warrior Special | WP File Lock

    Takes all of 5 minutes to setup and integrate with Warrior Plus and out of thousands of transactions I have never once had a problem with it. Simple and works like a charm.

    Take it from someone who has actually used it.

    Two pit bulls and one Rottweiler should do it.

    Damn, I asked this same question about 3 months ago and didn't receive these replies.

    I use ejunkie PDF Stamp feature to help prevent product sharing, but I like the look of WP File Lock!

    I've tested about thirty to fifty different products for this, and so far my personal favourite across the board is DLGuard. There are a lot of products out there which work well in specific situations, but DLGuard is the closest I've found to a one-size-fits-all solution.
    "The Golden Town is the Golden Town no longer. They have sold their pillars for brass and their temples for money, they have made coins out of their golden doors. It is become a dark town full of trouble, there is no ease in its streets, beauty has left it and the old songs are gone." - Lord Dunsany, The Messengers

    I use DLGuard because it permits you to specify a time limit for the sum of time a link is valid and also limit the number of times someone could use that URL. This provide convenient protection for your product, assisting to defend against piracY.

    WP File Lock is simple yet effective solution for protecting wordpress download page.
    The price also considerable if you just launch your first product

      Hi Jeremiah,

      Bear in mind that protecting the download page is of very limited value without also protecting the product: however well you protect the download page, you're not stopping someone from buying it, uploading it to various torrent and black-hat sites, circulating it by email attachment to large numbers of others, and so on.

      One way of strongly discouraging most of that is to use e-Junkie's PDF stamping device, which puts the customers' transaction details on every page of the PDF.
