Akeeba Subscriptions ComponentModulePlugin

Akeeba Subscriptions is a subscriptions management component for Joomla! 2.x/3.x. It's built using the Joomla! RAD Framework (FOF) and the best practices which ensure stability and security.

The killer features

- Streamlined administrator interface
- Rich subscription levels (subscription packages) editor which allows you to choose different images for each of your subscriptions and even a different order confirmation and order cancellation text to show to your users.
- The easiest subscription management interface you've seen on a component. It will even show you your users' faces, powered by Gravatar.
- Users can upgrade or expand (renew) their subscriptions. Renewing a subscription will create a new subscription which becomes valid the very second their old one expires. Users do not lose any of their subscription time when renewing, unlike most other subscription systems out there.
- Discount coupon codes which allow you to set an absolute money value or percentage discount for all or a specific subscription level and user, have publish up/publish down dates or a usage limit (e.g. the coupon code is valid only for the first 100 people to use it) – or a combination of any and all of the above!
- Automatic discounts for upgrading or renewing subscriptions based on the subscription level and days of presence in the subscription package. This allows you to easily create rules like: 30% discount if you renew up to 30 days before the end of your subscription, 15% discount if you renew within the last 30 days, no discount otherwise.
- Full support for complex tax calculations based on country, state and ZIP code. It fully integrates with the European Union's VIES system so that you can charge no VAT tax for intra-EU B2B transactions.
- Send emails to subscribers upon subscription, when their subscription/payment status changes and when their subscription is about to expire

Note: The component is distributed free of charge. No support is provided for it, free or paid.

This extension does everything I would expect to see from a paid component, but at the price of free it's even more greatly appreciated.

I was looking for an extension which I could use to sell files and downloads. Although this extension is originally design for subscriptions I was able to cover the whole sales process with it, especially the payment with paypal. It always works as you would expect it to do, straight forwards. It's extremly flexible and open to extend it for your needs with plugins. The documentation is excelent. Thanks a lot!

It covered everything I needed while it was easy to configure.
First I used a famous and paid extension for memberships/subscriptions. It took 4 days to configure it and find solutions to some operational and design problems! Finally I could not make it work with a real test. (Still can't believe that a paid extension was so disappointing.) Then I tried Akeeba Subscriptions. In the first day I had a working real test.
Thank you for this tool.

The most robust and stable subscription extension for Joomla CMS so far. We have been using AEC but since its only for joomla 2.5 we decided to use Akeeba instead. Can't believe its a Free extension. The documentation is fantastic as well

Don't waste your time with the others, this is amazing, inexpensive (if not free), and simple to use.

The amount of features you get is unreal (seriously where does Nic get the time). It's fully loaded and ready to go out of the box with little configuration.

I recommend this to anyone building a news site.

I was looking through various paid subscription components for a new Jomsocial powered website. I found it difficult to make a decision on the best solution and was really concerned forking out cash for a product when I was unsure of what I would get.
AkeebaSubscriptions was available as a free download so i decided to test it. Wow! What a feature packed system. it has everything I need and more.
Thank you for a really great product.

very "friendly" with other extensions as well and deeply customizable. a better graphic interface would be welcome.

Honestly, I am a fan of all Akeeba products except this. I always start building my Joomla website using their "Backup" and "Admin Tools". They were gifted extensions for Joomla. But, recently I needed an subscription extension for my client and I purchased from them without any doubt. It worked normally until I upgraded to the latest version. But, when I updated the extension, I totally loosed everything and had to re-configure the component again. Please take care while providing updates.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review, but we object to your assessment of the root cause of your issue.

We take utmost care when releasing updates, testing them on our dev sites, test sites and finally our own live site before making them available. If the update was broken our own site would be down, long before making the update available to our clients.

You seem to have tried uninstalling the extension before upgrading. As we explicitly tell you in our documentation (and as I've written in several public support tickets) you must not uninstall before upgrading/re-installing the extension. Uninstalling removes the database tables of the extension with the natural consequence of losing all your data.

Furthermore I would like to remind you that the Joomla! Extensions Directory is not the right place to request support. You are welcome to filing a support ticket on our site where our experienced support staff can help you understand and solve the issue you are facing. Most importantly, we can help you make sure that it won't happen again.

We've loaded up the core version of Akeeba Subscriptions for a non-profit client. We were truly impressed with the level of functionality in the free version. We had several email exchanges with the developer to discuss how the product might apply to our situation and he responded very quickly each time explaining how we could use it for our needs and integrate it with another product quite easily. When we mentioned that we would probably purchase the pro version, he kindly explained that for our needs we could really still get by with the free version with just one minor tweak! I highly recommend this component. The ease of use, the flexibility and the support are truly top notch!

Very good component, with lot of payment gates. The UI could be more friendly and intuitive, but anyway, it's worthy of 5 stars. Great Job

There are two elements in a great component, the first is high quality workmanship and the second is great support.

Akeeba have both in spades, if you have ever used some of the other acl/subscription systems you'll understand how important these things are!

This is a 5* extension from a 5* developer.

Functionality, documentation and support are all first class, say no more!

I've been using extensions from Akeeba and the Akeeba Subscriptions is another to add to my list of favorites. I run a membership based website and I've been using another extension for my members for about 2 years. However, after giving Akeeba Subscriptions a try, I have to say I am very impressed with its capability, flexibility, and ease of use. Documentation from Nicholas is very good and he keeps things up to date which is a big selling point for me...and support of course which is also exceptional. I cannot believe this one is free, but I still opted in for the pro version because it's well worth it!

I have used probably every other subscription management extension there is for Joomla right from j 1.0. This is by far the easiest and most straightforward to install and configure and probably the most powerful as well. All my sites now use this. I can't recommend it highly enough - and it's free!

I don't know what can I say...

On my new project I use Akeeba Subscription (with some other Akeeba extensions, too) and it has all features I need.
Do you need something else? Just open a ticket and ask for it. If it make sense and useful for all users, they impelement it as soon as possible.

Great exntesions + great & satisfactory support + great documentation.

I was having problems managing a community website using one of the popular extensions community-based extensions. I migrated everything to Akeeba Subscriptions about 3 months ago.

My life is much easier now. Subscriptions is very easy to use, intuitive, includes great features, and I have confidence in Akeeba's ability to develop reliable solutions.

I purchased the full license but the free version offered enough features that I didn't have to upgrade. Happy I did, though. The value is great, their support is awesome, and I believe it's important to support their business.

One of the best decisions I've made this year.

This extension is excellent - very well thought out, easy to use, and powerful. I was previously using Ambra subscriptions and needed to import data from the old system to the new - go figure, Akeeba had built in integration to do that! Very happy with the upgrade. Thanks Akeeba!
