The Admin tab is an important part of the Store Settings as it has some important security options as well as your admin email settings. In the next few lines of this tutorial we will discuss the available options on that page so you can be more familiar with the interface of the plugin. 


To access the Admin settings of your store you will need to login to your WordPress dashboard and go to Settings>Store.

Now select the "Admin" tab and you will see the following options ready to be configured:


  • Max downloads per file: You can select the amount of times a client can download a product he bought (only for digital products)
  • Lock downloads to IP address: If you enable this option, once a client has downloaded a product he will not be able to download it again by using another IP address (only for digital products)
  • Check MIME types on file uploads: Checks the MIME types to ensure no malicious files will be uploaded to the website. (do not disable unless you have other protection method)
