Download After Email – Subscribe & Download Form Plugin


Download After Email is a free Subscribe & Download plugin that allows you to gain subscribers by offering free downloads.

Subscribe & Download Form

Creating a new subscribe & download form is pretty much the same as creating a new post or page, only with some extra options. If you are satisfied with the preview you can save the form and place the generated shortcode on a page, post or widget. It is possible to create multiple subscribe & download forms.

Enter Email Before Download

A visitor must enter his email address before the download link will be sent via email. The secure download link can be used once by the relevant user and the download process is protected against unauthorized use.

Responsive & Highly Customizable

The Ajax-based opt-in form is fully responsive and adapts to the space around and to the screen. There are many options available to customize the layout of the subscribe & download form and to adjust the text for all notifications including the email that is sent with the download link. It is possible to use HTML and images for the email content. “From Email” and “From Name” can be set.

GDPR Ready

Download After Email offers all necessary tools to let you comply with the GDPR. You can enter the text of the checkbox with a link to the privacy policy. In the background, data is stored such as IP address, form content, time etc. The use of the download link functions as double opt-in.

Premium is coming soon

We are working on an extension to upgrade this plugin to the premium version with the following features:

  • Create and manage your own form fields
  • Export subscriber data to a CSV-file and use it for email marketing, newsletters etc.
  • Integration with Mailchimp, it automatically saves subscribers and their data to your Mailchimp list



  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly (recommended).
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Start making your first download and test it with the preview option before placing the generated shortcode on a page, post or widget.
