Customizing Magento to support download products

I am going to use Magento for digital downloads. As Magento does not directly support this (yet), I think I will need to perform some customization of the checkout process.

What I need can be reduced to these two main things:

1. After a customer purchases a virtual product, I need Magento to perform a remote procedure call of sorts to tell the file server that a particular customer has paid for a certain product. The file server needs to know the customer’s e-mail address, order number, and product purchased.

2. The file server responds with a unique URL. I need this URL to be displayed as a link in the success confirmation page and in the confirmation e-mail.

I’ve been trying to learn Magento’s architecture, but I don’t yet understand where to even begin such a customization.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you!

Hi,

I will have to do something like that with loose coupling of fileserver and magento. I thougt about creating some kind of crypto signed key to the files.
