I went over to WP Download Manager's forum and had quite the excruciating time to get the support agent to understand my point of view so that we could work out a solution. But I don't think they even wanted to understand any other view but their own. Free products are nice, but if you want support from a place like this, be ready to go through quite the ordeal.

We bought the pro version of the plugin to make a simple system of downloading a pdf after payment by paypal, the configuration was completely indecipherable. I contacted support and it took about a month to answer me, he apologized for the delay but then the support was worse than the plugin itself, I did not solve anything and it was not possible to configure it so that in a simple way the process was done, I asked for our money back and they made a thousand excuses for not doing so, in my opinion they are thieves scammers, do not use this product. We had to uninstall it and use the 'Paid Memberships Pro' and it took us minutes to get it configured and running, I have nothing to do with this last plugin but it makes me very angry the impotence that generates that they ignore you in this way and not being able to do anything about it.

I am not a coder, so sometimes I need support to purchase the correct add-ons or for short codes. The plugin is one of the most complete so far and when I needed support, I must say it is not always straight to the fix, but I was helped to find a specific fix for my website and not just a generic support. I am satisfied.
