Is there a Script/Theme/Plugin similar to istock?

    I'm looking for a way to make a site similar to istock, where users join via membership and download a multitude of files per month. The problem is, I'm wondering whats the best way to go about it?
    SEMrush
    I thought about using DAP, and making pages on wordpress, but I find that could be hectic, and not really suit my needs (I would like something I could track how many downloads a file is getting), and restrict certain files to certain membership levels.

    Anyone could chime in, and tell me what CMS or way I need to go? Thanks!

    That one is close. I was trying to see if there's a plugin or way to build it where I only have access to upload all the files in the marketplace (not others, just a buyers market), and different membership levels allow you to download different types of files. For example:

    Membership A: Can download ebooks only
    Membership B: Can download ebooks and audiobooks.
    Membership C: Can download ebooks, audiobooks, and video of book.

    Along with a way to follow up with them in a autoresponder throughout the membership, and track downloads from a certain file, prices, etc. I like the way dap and some other membership plugins work, but on the side of tracking downloads, files, etc, it can be a pain.

    Is wordpress the best way to go, or would suggest another platform, plugins, theme, etc?

    This would likely tackle part of that issue. https://easydigitaldownloads.com/downloads/lock-downloads-to-ip/

    as for the tiers I would have to think that over. I think my colleague has that theme so I can test a few things but I am likely gone for the day. I had a long day.

    Short answer would be something like this https://codecanyon.net/item/wp-membership/10066554 or http://wp-member.com/ I am not entirely sure if it will cooperate together but it frankly should. The email bit should be fairly trivial.
