Selling digital product online will require a solid membership component and file manager. Payplans from ReadyBytes and Dropfiles from JoomUnited are both famous extension to achieve that.

You’ll get a powerful membership tool with thousands of features to manage users and membership and a powerful files manager to add, edit, update, track your products downloads.

Our latest Dropfiles 2.1 version includes:

  • Google Drive full double way sync
  • 1 click file update
  • 1 click file ordering
  • 4 themes
  • Manage files directly from your content

How does it works?

Dropfiles allows to apply restriction using Joomla access level on categories of files. Payplans is already integrated with Joomla User group. You can automatically assign a group to a user regarding subscription status of his subscribed plan. So, Payplans and Dropfiles are natively integrated using Joomla ACL.


Dropfiles is a flexible and easy to use download manager, it allows user to classify files in category and subcategory that belong to a particular user group/level. So you’ll simply need to map access level and user group with Payplans membership to allow/restrict downloads.

Juser Type Payplans app could assign and unassign users from the user group upon activation and expiration of subscription.
