I love your e-commerce plugin so easy to use. I have an e-learning course that I have developed and wish to sell using your plugin however I don't want customers to be able to download the course but give them access to it with a URL as the course was developed in HTML5 / JS.

I like the fact that you can add an expiry date to a digital product but could you do that for a URL and mask the original URL so when the user receives a purchase email with a link to the URL to view the course online but it masks the original URL and sets it so the URL expires after a certain amount of time so user can not share the URL online?

Or is this possible with your Membership add on? My main concern is keeping the content from being shared for free. I have also looked at WooThemes Sensei but i don't need all that functionality.

Hi Oliver,

Thanks for your interest in Exchange.

With the Membership add-on, you can restrict access to your content.  So, even if someone were to share the URL, the person would have to login to access the content.  There isn't an option, however, mask the URL or have it expire.  I can add this as a feature request, but I don't have a timeline for if/when that would be added.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.
