SP Paypal Subscriptions Component

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
A very powerful and simple to use component to manage Joomla subscriptions with Paypal saved buttons. With this component you have all you need to integrate the security and ease of use of Paypal Payment Standard Buttons with the new Access Control System of Joomla!

Taking advantage of the New Joomla! features of Access Control System (allows site administrators control over who can view and manage content), we designed a component that allow you to automatically create/update user's groups and status, with Paypal Standard Buttons transactions.

We did not try to build a subscriptions manager from scratch. Instead we had the innovative idea to combine all the power of Joomla and Paypal together.
Why is simple to use?

Because is as simple as:

1. Joomla Access Control System interface
2. Paypal Saved Buttons interface

If you already use Joomla! and Paypal, then you already have the knowledge!

Why is powerful, flexible and user friendly?
Because is as powerful, flexible and user friendly as:

1. Joomla user and content management (define who have access to what)
2. Paypal Subscriptions buttons (recursive, duration, trial periods, etc etc...)

I wasted 2 whole days messing around with the other needlessly complex and frustrating subscription/membership extensions before trying this deceptively simple plugin. It is incredibly simple to set up and works like a charm. Simply set up standard Joomla ACL memberships, add a paypal button and then link the paypal button to the membership level - simple, effective and brilliant. Very highly recommended.

The extension is simple to use, and works exactly as described.

I was in need of a way to track subscriptions to my website and this was the exact solution that I needed. It took only a few minutes to install and configure.
I had a few problems getting it started at firs, but the developer did an outstanding job at providing me with technical support. He helped me get it running in no time and haven't had any problems with it since.

Very good, though I ran into a wall trying to get it to work, which turn out to be my fault: I didn't have SSL enabled. In your PHP settings, make sure to enable "php_openssl". ;)

Just had a small glitch that was Joomla's fault not the plugin. I emailed SP CYEND back and forth and they updated their "How to" document so everyone will know how to fix it. I signed up on Joomla's site just so I could thank SP CYEND. Thanks so much for this great free plug-in!!!!!

I have joined this site purely to thank the developer and leave feedback for this excellent extension.

Not only is this (currently) the only free paid subs extension on here but it is really easy to use (even though I initially made an error) and has the best support I have ever experienced on the web.

I would highly recommend this extension for your paid subscription needs.

Great stuff!

As the owner of a website hosting company I can only hope that our group provides the same level of service and support as that provided by this talented developer. The product does exactly what it's supposed to do. Highly recommended with no reservations.

I searched for a paypal subscription solution for my new Joomla 1.7 site and came across several commercial options and this FREE one.

Needless to say since it is free I gave it a try first. I had several questions and sent a total of 7 emails to the support (some of my questions were already answered in the instructions but I had been too quick and eager to get started and had missed them). However, each email was met with a response sometimes within an hour and never more than 12 hours! I got friendly help each and every time addressing my question specifically.

I do not normally do reviews but felt compelled to write and let you know this extension does the job of adding subscriptions/payments to your site and helps you set up an automatic reply email (where you can include their access details etc) to the new member to get them started.

You should give this a try before paying for a commercial alternative if you want a simple process for adding paypal with automatic member creation to pre selected categories or for multiple purposes.

Its a fairly new extension, but works well, is simple, and works with 1.6. Does exactly what I needed with no bells and whistles. If you are using paypal, and need to auto create / renew accounts, this is the free tool you are looking for....oh yea...FREE
