Hello Doctor Bertalan,

There are a few ways of doing this.

You could have an Online Store which would collect the details of your customers/users prior to issuing a link for download. If you have 10 or less files then you can do this for free using the native Ecwid Store which is the same as the Yola Online Store except that it is free for low product numbers. The Yola version doesn't offer the free subscription.

A form with an auto-response which could include the details of the location of the downloads (or possibly with an active download link), or a response page with the download links opening on submission of the form to you and these options could also collect the user details into a database such as Google Drive. Jotform is an excellent solution for this (Free within limits also). The Yola form can't be directly connected to a database, but would work without that enhancement.

A form which would include and require response details of users to which you could then manually send the files.
