Learn how to install, configure and use Ecomly
By default, Ecomly introduces a .htaccess file to protect your wp-content/uploads/woocommerce_uploads directory, however, this doesn’t guarantee the protection of this directory, since everything depends on the configuration of the server.
WooCommerce appends a unique string to the filename of uploaded files to enhance security.
It is recommended to be turned on and will be turned on by default, but it’s not required if you have already properly configured your upload directory. No filename or links will be affected when you turn it on, only files uploaded when this setting is checked will have a unique string added to them.
This is setting is fully backward compatible and can be turned off-on at a whim without affecting any already generated file links.
You can access this setting by going to Store Settings> Settings > Products > Downloadable products.
To get started:

If you want to add/sell a downloadable product that does not have a physical component, enable the Virtual option.
The ordering process for downloadable products is:
Customers can then download files.
