    Ok so can someone explain how the “post-sale of a download” transaction happens on the download theme. There are no forms, or a section to edit a “post sale page” or email? Also why are out tests sending 4 emails to admin on the order.

    Is the buyer merely sent a random email with a link to download the file?

    Does it use the email associated with paypal sale? Sorry not sure about this process and we are trying to understand. It seems to only have the generic paypal / order area wit no post sales control.

    Any help here? We are thinking once the sale is made the user is sent an email link to download product / software. So does the users have to be registered? WE are guessing so.

    Hello Anthony,
    After a purchase a user gets a download link sent to email.Users don’t have to register to download plus you can use social media ie Share to download

    Thanks Josh as always. So just to be clear the users does NOT need to register (unless we desire)_ and they can share the link with anyone? is there not a way of having it expire or for us to limit it to 3x etc?

    Hello Anthony,
    Users can share using a selected social media (currently the available is Facebook,Google+,Twitter,LinkedIn.You can select the social media you want users to use when adding a Listing).There is no option to set an expiry or limit the number of downloads currently

    Are you serious? That is absolutely insane. Why would ANY business sell a copy of software or content only to let anyone share it with thousands of people on social media. OMG! Can you say insane? lol Guess the joke is on us.

    Wow blown away after 2 weeks creating this site on that template. Thank you as usual Josh but Mark must understand that is just BAD business not to limit a download. Wonder how he wold feel if we gave away the templates to our friends and contacts worldwide free. Oh wait that is right he LIMITS those to a member key to protect his property. How basic is that? The fun never ends. Damn! Yep shocked t say the least. (sorry had to vent on this one)

    So can users share the emailed link for anyone to download it too?

    Still unsure about this one my brother.
