Thank you

Nevermind, I figured out a workaround to make it work for me.
Ecwid provides two ways to protect download links:
Link lifetime, in hours - how many hours the file can be downloaded by this link
Number of downloads - how many times it's allowed to download the file. By limiting the number of downloads, you'll be able to avoid the file sharing that you're concerned about.

These parameters are available for paid Ecwid plans, so you can set them up: in Ecwid control panel, System Settings -> General -> E-goods. These settings are applied globally for the whole store.

It would be great if you shared your solution here. Perhaps it could help us make Ecwid better.

Thank you in advance.
