What is xAsset?

Xasset is a Xoops module designed for digital media sales and distribution. Initially this was designed for shareware authors but the module architecture has been extended to selling and distributing any digital asset such as MP3 files, EXE files or PDF documents. Anything that can be downloaded can be managed from xAsset.

xAsset also enables selling group membership, ideal for selling subscriptions to premium online content. Members can be viewed along side their membership expiry details. Group membership has more features in the pipeline.

Main xAsset features include:

1.Payment Gateway integration via a plugin architecture. A Paypal plugin is available to premium members. Other payment modules can easily be developed. Please contact us for details and pricing.

2.Secure your digital assets by placing them outside the public_html folder thus preventing any direct link exploits. xAsset offers a sophisticated download control mechanism that allows you to specify how many times a file can be downloaded and until when. All downloads are logged against IP address which makes it possible to track users who are sharing their login details.

3.Users cannot download files unless logged into your site thus eliminating more direct linking exploits.

4.Products that can be sold via xAsset include digital media (files), services and group membership. Xasset provides an automatic mechanism of adding the client to any Xoops user group, giving you an easy way to control premium membership access for example.
