Charging link viewers to download files

Charging link viewers to download files

New member | Level 2

Hi,

I have a dropbox account with an art collection and it attracts many viewers via my share link. I know that I am able to disable downloads, which is great when protecting my files. Does anybody know if Dropbox is working on a way for people to be able to download files but for a fee. Like, the download button is on but when potential clients click on it it brings them to a payment processing page and once they confirm they are able to download? Thanks.

Dropbox does not release roadmaps I'm afraid. 

 

However, if I'm being honest it is not something I can see happening. Dropbox is a sharing and collaboration system, it isnt an e-commerce one.

Is it possible for me to charge people to download my files.

Hey there (@hustlepost), while this isn’t currently an option within Dropbox, you may explore our integrations as an alternative solution, as long as your content resides within Dropbox. If you run a search on our preferred browser, it will bring up some results that would point you towards the best next steps. 
 
Other than that, I’ve made sure to make a note of your interest in my report internally. I hope that this helps- to some extent- & I’m always here in case you have more Dropbox-related questions or you’d like to share your thoughts. Wishing you a lovely rest of your day!
