Magento (https://magento.com/) is one of most widely used open source shopping cart solutions. Magento is available in the older version 1.x and the newer version 2.x, which are largely not compatible to each other. This document is about Magento 2.x. For Magento 1.x look here.
Magento 2.x is used primarily for physical sales and offers no functionality for secure online content distribution. With the FlickRocket extension for Magento it is now possible to sell DRM protected digital content right within Magento 2.x.
This extension enables you to sell and rent (optionally DRM protected) digital content such as DVDs (incl. all menus, bonus material, etc.), video (HD+SD), audio books, ebooks (epub and PDF) and packaged content such as HTML, Flash, images, etc.
Customers can consume the content on virtually all platforms and access the content also on multiple devices. While doing so the content is transparently end-to-end protected and you can freely define usage time frames, device limitations, regional limitations, and much more.
You can encode, package, encrypt and upload your content right within Magento or use desktop software (free download for Windows and Mac) to get your content ready for sale. The content distribution is done via our content delivery network (CDN) to ensure a high bandwidth distribution to a world wide audience.
This extension includes not only the backend features to set up your content but also shop frontend features so you can present trailers and about guiding people after the checkout. It also includes a digital locker for customer to log in and access their purchased content at a later time.
You don’t need to be an expert in DRM to get your content sales up can running. DRM is applied automatically during upload and you can select from various pre-defined licenses. You can even offer customers the option to select between licenses (e.g. download-to-own or rental) at different prices.
