Live example here: «Restricted Files» plugin (version 2.1, 2016-12-11) - Discourse Plugins
The «Restrict Files» plugin allows you to restrict access to downloads (attached files) so only users of permitted groups can download files from your Discourse forum.
So you can sell digital content through your Discourse forum.
To receive payments from your customers you can use my another Discourse plugin «PayPal Buy Now».
Also you can offer your digital content for free, but only to members of permitted groups / trust levels.
So you can motivate your forum members to achieve the specified trust level to gain access to the downloads.
