6 stars for the extension
6 stars for the support

The support is very important if you are not fully satisfied with what comes out of the box.

I needed some customizations and I had some ideas about the product. The coder Sergey always listens to your ideas and quickly adds the necessary options to the component within days. The component is updated weekly with additional features.

I have a complicated paid subscription system and I have used 2 extensions before migrating to this one. This one is far beyond the others.

The coder Sergey developed a gateway, an importer, an action and a custom report for me within a few days. He is very talented. I am not only amazed by the product but also the coder who made it very simple yet very powerful.

It has many features that are not fully listed above. But the demo site is very flexible so you can test it very well. Emerald is using bootstrap framework. The component package is very very light compared to the other extension that I was using. You don't need to install every gateway or action which makes the component even lighter.

When you install the component, it says "very mature subscription component" That is true and says it all.

I would like to thank Sergey for making my dreams come true.

My experience in Joomla 3 years. My experience with the sites also 3 years. This is little experience. And I was afraid of the difficulties with the organization of the levels of access for clients website. But two years ago I bought a Mighty Membership, and then Emerald. Everything was very simple and convenient. And when I had questions, the developers have helped me without delay. We live thousands of miles apart, but they are now my good friends.

Emerald is a very good component. It solves all the problems that I'm having to work with the site. It perfectly covers the access to the joomla and any other components that are needed for my website. Purpose of my site - training. New ideas for the construction site come every day. And each of them decides Emerald easily.

Many thanks to the development team

Before starting to use Emerald (and I started to use it 3 years ago) I studied and tried all other components very carefully. I produce Joomla education video on Russian, and my site run on Emerald. I could realize all ideas I have with it. And yet it has even more options than I needed. At the same time extension is easy to use.

What else I like about this extensions that developers support it very good. And they keep adding new features constantly. They added some features I needed quickly. Very responsive team.

After years of experience with many, many Joomla extensions I can surely state that Emerald is the best membership component.
