I have three eBook clients who sell their books as PDF downloads.

These PDFs can be HUGE: 80MB+
Downloads, especially when there are lots of web visitors, can tax the server and cause incomplete download problems, which are very frustrating for the customers.

As I have already offloaded most of their very large FREE PDFs to AMAZON S3, the ability to use AMAZON S3 for the PAID DOWNLOADS too would be awesome.

Thank you.

I did develop a plugin which allow to store HikaShop product files in Amazon S3 (so for free and paid downloads).
The plugin is using the AWS API which allows to generate unique download links with an expiration, so the downloads stay secure.
