This is an awesome plugin! It worked fine for 1 month, now the .zip files doesn’t get decrypted anymore upon downloading. So customers are downloading “corrupted” files. I had to deactivate the plugin and reupload every single .zip file for all my products 🙁 I am not sure if it happened because of Wordpress/Woocommerce updates, but as of now, i can only give 3 stars, because the plugin did his job great! Sadly stopped working for us ..
