ccInvoices 1.7 is a beta release with Joomla! 3 support
This is not a componnt in the order " you get what you pay for" you get a whole lot more and they live up to their 100% guaranteed satisfaction.
Very happy with this, one of the best investmenst ever.
They should habe been around before I spent those 1500 euros lol.
Great job, keep it up !
To bad that it is not possible to style the invoice with css and have it converted to PDF. Also inline html possiblities - even font types - are limited. So do not expect to send an invoice in your customers branding style.
Suppport is excellent though. When I wanted to style the invoice with a background image they offered a solution, which could be implemented without problems.
Thanks for your review! I am happy to hear that you are pleased with ccInvoices!
You are correct, when styling a PDF document you can not use all CSS functions. This is limited by third-party PDF libraries. A PDF library converts HTML output to PDF, and unfortunately PDF libraries do not support as much CSS functions as browsers (Firefox, Chrome etc) do.
We already use the best PDF library in ccInvoices (TCPDF), and in the next ccInvoices version will update TCPDF to the latest version so even more CSS functions become available. I am sure that eventually PDF libraries will support all CSS functions. At the moment the most common CSS functions are already available (about 75% I think).
The background image solution we developed for you was actually a good idea! We will add it to the next version as a default for all our customers.
They have help me a lot with the configurations and installation. They will help till you have the invoice as is should be. Thereby the response is within +/- 12 hours and mostly within an hour!
by having this i had the chance to see they actually have great support on presale questions.
therefore ive never had a question after buying.
just install, do some settings and your good to go.
i really like the ideal gateway!
makes my work alott easyer...thanks for that!
i would have easily payed more for functinality of contracts and periodic payments.
maybe a future feature :)
However, even the best extensions have bugs or things you don't quite understand. I had both, and the support was excellent! Prompt and helpful responses. In fact, for one particular issue, it was only a few hours between when I reported it and it was resolved.
Specialy that a admin cannot create invoices in frontend is very poor.
I have a small IT OnSite Support Business and when im be by a customer i want create Invoices there directly to save the nature (paper less dream ;)
But the Customer see when i create a invoice all other Customers and there invoices. :(
I moved to another webspace provider and since then when i created a pdf invoice im not able to open it (File Corrupt or damaged) The Joomla installation is absoloutly the same (with akeeba backup)
You are correct in stating that ccInvoices is a simple, user friendly invoicing extension. It is a uncomplicated system that can be used by at least 80% of businesses and individuals.
Your first point is actually a functionality request "create invoices from the frontend". Nowhere do we communicate this functionality, so it is not really relevant to review ccInvoices on that functionality.
Then, it appears you are still using ccInvoices about 3 months after you requested and received a refund. This is your right, no problem. But ccInvoices is probably not as bad as you as describing it, right?
Second, you are posting a support request to an issue which is probably not caused by ccInvoices at all. As you state, you moved the website to another server (webspace provider). Did you realize that moving the exact same website to another server still changes at least the server configuration and probably the file permissions?
In any case, the issue was easily solved by us if you would have opened a support ticket (and did not request a refund 3 months ago, but kept using ccInvoices).
For my workinggroup i wanted a simple (but advaced in some ways) invoice system. I found ccInvoices. After updating to a newer version I had some problems but the guys fixed it fast and very good! Don't hasitate to buy the product! It's a good product from a good and friendly compagny.
For my company i wanted a simple (but advaced in some ways) invoice system. The guys of chill creations provided it to me. I even got some custom addings to the program without any extra costs! Last week i updated to a newer version. I had some struggles with my customisations but the guys fixed it fast and very good! Don't hasitate to buy the product! It's a good product from a good and friendly compagny.
Support was first class. I wanted to fix some styling, and I had responses and support working on the issues within hours! Looking forward to when payment can be made from this module too. Then it will be even greater. 5/5
