First time poster to this group so feel free to redirect as appropriate.

I am looking for a solution to a question that I'm sure has come up before, but which I don't find addressed in much detail in any of the usual places (FAQ's, searching groups).

I want to sell certain types of documents that I create on the web. Log-in, enter your credit card number, download/receive as attachment/order printed version.

I haven't seen any foolproof protection for documents, but I'm hoping that a sufficient answer would be to dynamically generate a password for each order from the order page, and apply that password to the document that's been ordered.

ARTs security seems to allow me to do something like this on NT, on a one-off basis.

Could I automate the process with, say, a script of some sort? Are there hosting services that have experience with this sort of thing. I'm handy, but would much rather go with a hosting/e-commerce service that has experience selling and delivering PDF's.

Many thanks,

Michael M.

Adding a PDF Stamp Comment

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
