Want to sell PDF files and eBooks with watermarks, text stamp strings, and strong PDF access security?
The extension helps you protect your eBooks and other PDF files with watermarks, passwords and strong access protections.
PDF Security Protection
Add security to your PDF file to protect your content.
Optionally add a password that will be required to view the file. When you use this feature then strong passwords can be randomly generated or you can opt to have the buyer’s email address be used as the password. Passwords are assigned on a per user basis, so if two different buyers purchase the same PDF they’ll each have a different password. Password protection helps prevent your PDF files from being shared on the file sharing sites, other Web sites, FTP sites, DropBox, via email, etc.
And if you need to, the permissions protection lets you choose to add any or all of the following protections to your PDF files:
- Printing – Whether the buyer is allowed to print the PDF file.
- Copying – Whether the buyer is allowed to copy or extract text and images from the PDF file.
- Modifications – Whether the buyer is allowed to edit the PDF file.
- Annotations – Whether the buyer can add annotations to the PDF file.
PDF Watermark Text
Optionally add text watermarks easily. You can optionally add a text string to the header and/or footer of your PDF documents. You define whatever text you want and you have the ability to easily insert any or all of the following information into the string: Buyer’s first name, last name, billing address, city, state or province or region, postal code, phone number, email address, date of download, date of order, and order ID number.
You can set a global text string to use on all PDF files that you sell, or set a unique stamp string for any particular product if you need the ability to use different stamp strings for different products.
PDF Watermark Image
You can optionally add an image watermark to your PDF files. It’s easy, just upload your image, set the position for the watermark, set the image transparency level (to avoid having the image block the readability of the text ), and you’re done. You can also optionally rotate the image if you want to it be tilted in the background of the pages.
If you need to use unique watermarks for specific products you can do that too. Edit the product and choose a watermark image, and save the product – that’s all there is to it.
Insert your text stamp or watermark image into your choice of pages: All pages, first page, last page, odd pages, or even pages.
Unicode & UTF-8 International Language Support
For non-English sites the plugin provides support for UTF-8 style character sets, commonly used for languages such as French, Spanish, German, Lithuanian, and many more.
Sample PDF Watermark Files
View sample PDF files stamped by WooCommerce PDF Stamper & Watermark by clicking the file links below. Each PDF is password protected ( the password is “test” without the quotes ) and also includes all available protections ( cannot extract content, print, modify, or annotate ).PDF with a text stamp ( configured as a red text stamp in the header only, using fictitious info ) PDF with an image watermark PDF with a text stamp and image watermark
See the “Screenshots” tab above to view the overall plugin settings. You’ll see what the settings look like when you only want to insert text stamps, or only want to insert an image watermark. Keep in mind that if you enable both modes ( text stamp and image watermark ) you’ll see a combination of both sets of settings on one page. There’s also a screenshot showing you what individual product settings look like, where you can override the default stamp string and watermark image for any product when you need to.
And note that you can optionally disable stamping PDFs attached to a given product.
As always this plugin comes with great professional support via email or phone.
