File hosting for digital downloads

I recently started using the new ecomm feature and love it. I’d love to sell digital downloads and am curious, where are people securely hosting their files? For example, let say I host a file on Drive or something—what’s to stop the buyer from sharing the download link with their friends? Does WF generate unique download links for each buyer? What is that tied to, their email address?


There is some verbiage on the feature university article that suggests the file is served via a unique URL to each user that purchases the product, however I haven’t tested it myself yet.

Note : the Order Downloads email will be sent separately from the Order Confirmation and will only include the unique download links for the order.

Just gave it a go and it obfuscates the URL nicely. Hosting the files on dropbox seems to work well
