Using Dropbox for Etsy Digital Downloads Shop. How to share content?

Using Dropbox for Etsy Digital Downloads Shop. How to share content?

Hi,

I have an Etsy store selling digital downloads of graphics/clipart.  The maximum total file size allowed on Etsy is 100mb and I'm finding my clipart collections are now exceeding that.  I want to upload these clipart collections to folders in dropbox and provide customers who buy with a link to the relevant folder.  I am trying to do this but can only seem to create a folder that can then be edited by any customer who accesses it.  I want to have it so they can just see it (and obviously download from it).  I currently have Dropbox Plus.  I wonder it it's possible with this subscription.

Any info would be gratefully received 🙂

Basically, yes. 

 

As a free user you get 1TB of bandwidth a day (which is a HUGE amount!!). But that is in a rolling 24 hour period. So every time somebody downloads something it goes against that quota. If they do it say 10 x then your 100mb file would use 1GB of bandwidth.

Hi @joteedee 

 

It is yes - https://help.dropbox.com/share/create-and-share-link

 

HOWEVER remember that there are bandwidth limitations on accounts so links can be banned and you cannot stop people sharing links as there's no sort of authorisation on them (although you can password things).

Thank you so much for replying.  I'm okay with people sharing links and accept that as a possibility but I don't know what you mean about bandwith limitations.  Do you mean if lots of people tried to access at once and then the link would not work?
