I have been using OSE Membership for over 6 months now and it had been extremely stable. The OSE team is extremely responsive to all questions and have solved any and all problems, or customization needs I have had. The extension works as described and their is great documentation provided.

I didn't expect the world when I bought this but at least the basic functionality I needed it for and not more much which it couldn't deliver on. If you're used to a higher quality program such as CBSubs - this is far behind with most of it's features. A simple function like adding up the quantity for two items is too much for this to handle. Furthermore, the developer gave one shot at helping me then obviously wasn't going any further than what I could have done myself. In order to get anything other than a very basic for layout one would need to spend an outrageous amount on buying a feature table from them which really doesn't extend the look any further. My suggestion is to buy this if you need very basic membership and truly don't expect anything more than exactly what's documented which isn't very much. I do get it some credit for being a clean, simple design which is well appreciated. This makes me question their security suite as well. Again, with this company - you get exactly what's in the description and not a single thing more as reinforced to me by Shawn which also thought it'd be his business to sarcastically tell me how I should shop in the future after being nothing but nice to him.
Owner's reply

Hi Michael

You have your own specific requirements that our component cannot do and we do not think it is a general features to benefit to other users, so we do not add the feature and issue full refund to you without asking a question and our developer has helped you change things without any charges, what are we doing wrong? We leave this to the public. For the functionality, we do believe our component is quite poweful and stable compared to other membership software. Please note we only need what we have helped and offered can be appreciated and treated fairly.

Best regards
OSE team

We thoroughly researched the membership subscription components and chose OSE Membership. After using OSE Membership for about a year we couldn't be happier with our choice! We use this for an online printing site and offer "Free" and "Premier" accounts. The component is very flexible, tons of features, and allowed us to setup exactly how we needed. And with many components you have to do customizing to the template and such; not the case here, the stock install is ready to go and makes updating to new versions a breeze. Which that is another point, they regularly update the component adding new features and fine-tuning the current features. Expect many updates during your OSE subscription period.

The component is 5 stars but wish we could show 10 stars for support! Over the past year we had support questions using their great support ticket system and they were always right on it and pleasant to work with!

We've used Joomla since 2006 and we know a top-notch component, and this is one. Great job and strongly recommended by veteran Joomla users!

I just wanted to say thanks for a great component! I found it easy to install and configure. Also the tax set up is amazing. I am fairly new to joomla and this component was a snap. I had tried quite a few other membership extensions and this was the best hands down!

OSE Membership not only offers superior membership management capabilities but delivers on its promise of support, resolving a query over weekend. Based on their terrific support we will gladly continue our use of OSE product ranges.

A bit higher price on this one but boy you get what you pay for!
Amazing back-end, lots of options, considerable easy to work with, great integration with other components (love the built in option to pay for subscription through VM) and has great documentation.
Had some minor problems because I have overlooked something in the manual but support was quick and helpful.
This is a must have choice for subscriptions.

The module was easy to install, there were a few bugs, but the support staff were excellent and fast at fixing things. The Module is great and does everything they said it would. I had a problem with a different module (not their product), which had no support and the techs at OSE fixed it for me... talk about above and beyond! Many thanks to the techs over at OSE.

I just upgraded my membership package and I must say it was incredibly straight forward and quick to install and with the list of queries I had on the back of that, all were answered in the most readily, professional and detailed way possible. Just superb from product to support!!

Thanks Helix & Team.

I tried ALL the membership extensions for joomla, and none of them offer a full feature set like OSE does. My site is quite complex with alot of other components going on and I had a small problem with a conflicting app at first and their support was excellent and fixed the other app to make it compatible. Now that's support that goes above and beyond the call of duty! If you want a membership app that can do it all, looks great, is easy to use, and can grow with your site in the future, OSE is what you are looking for.

The component works very well but need some customizations to fit your needs.

The tech support is simply awesome, i should say incredible !!
Tickets are answered sometimes in minutes (!) (and i am in Japan, totally different timezone)
Everything i wanted to do with the component was made possible by the support team.
I really recommend it ;)

I've been developing with Joomla for 6+ years and haven't yet experienced this level of support. Great component too! Haven't experienced a bug yet.

Helix and his team are amazing. They developed a superb software for memberships. I was never before so excited about a piece of software. So many features and the documentation how to setup a paypal account so simple. If you buy this product believe me you wont regret it. The main reason that you wont regret it is because the SUPPORT is amazing. They will reply to any problems you have in matter of minutes and they will NOT give up until they fix it.

Thanks very much,

Now I'm very long a member and I can say that I've never regretted it. If there is just a very small problem, the support is caring and is very fast. I'm really very positive surprised that this company is meeting every desire. And I like it very much that the customers are here not just customers, they are more than that. Everything was going right and very good. This was the reason why I would everytime renew my membership and this is also the reason why I'm going to subsribe me for another membership plans, too. I can't say this same words to another company which is providing joomla extensions, because we see everytime that there is anything not OK. I'm prefering this extension everybody, who want to buy it. Do not hesitate to subscribe, you will see it =] for existing members there is a change to get coupon codes with reduced prices, too!

Nun bin ich schon sehr lange Mitglied bei OSE und ich habe es wirklich bis jetzt noch nie bereut dort Mitglied zu sein. (Man bezahlt den Support nicht die Extension, der Zugang zur Extension ist allerdings dadurch gehindert, das man den Support zahlen muss um es überhaupt runterlanden zu können, kompliziert ich weiss =D ) Der Support ist klasse, schnell und kümmert sich um jede Angelegenheit, auch wenn es sich hierbei nur um etwas Kleines handelt. Was ich ebenfalls bemerkt habe, dass am Support Desk auch keine Laien arbeiten sondern wirklich ein professionelles Team dahinter steckt. Genauso bin ich auch sehr positive überrascht, dass dieses Unternehmen die Wünsche der Kunden wirklich von den Lippen abliest und sich auch sonst um alles kümmert. Das gibt es wirklich nicht überall. Was vielleicht noch zu sagen ist, dass die Extension wirklich sehr gut programmiert worden ist und auch fehlerfrei funktioniert. Ist ja anscheinend nicht selbstverständlich bei Joomla Extensions =‘D Was vielleicht den einen oder anderen stören kann, ist das alles auf Englisch ist und die deutschen Sprachdateien maschinell übersetzt worden sind, sodass man am Anfang vll. denkt „WTF? Was soll das jetzt schon wieder heißen?“ Aber das ist ehrlich gesagt wirklich das geringste Problem. Ich denke eigentlich auch meine abgeänderte korrekte deutsche Sprachdatei denen zur Verfügung zu stellen, dann haben es auch deutsche Mitglieder bei OSE einfacher =]
Ich würde diese Joomla Extension jedem weiter empfehlen. Also zögert nicht rum ;) klare Kaufempfehlung! Für bestehende Kunden gibt es übrigens auch reduzierte Angebote. =D

This is an outstanding membership and content control system. It's easy to implement and extremely well documented.

It's also got support that is truly as good as any you are likely to experience. Need to know something? Ask How Do I Get This to Do That? Need something special? Not only do you get an answer, often the same day but they'll explain exactly how to do what you need to do.

Have a problem or confused? They'll often fix the issue on your site if you want.

And the best part? No hands held out for exorbitant fees to get their component to work, unlike some I've dealt with.

Control of memberships, payment systems and there are plenty to select, and setup is easy.

Managing access to articles, components and menu items is as straight forward as it comes. You'll love it's simplicity.
The component has been updated so it's simple to install and has all the "pieces" loaded and ready to use.

Conversion was a snap, they make it sooooo easy to set up existing members and transfer over accounts. With integration to CB, it's seamless and simple to use either CB to set up memberships or OSE.

What I really like is their openness to suggested improvements and they are already working on the next release...

Cons? Well, not much, it takes working with to figure out some of the nuances of the way it handles presenting membership options but not bad, at some point, even their excellent documentation could not possibly cover every goofy thing we want to do with our memberships...

Having worked now with 4 major system, I can say this is the easiest to use and a great blend of capabilities. Well worth a solid look if you are replacing an old system or installing a new one.

I think you'll find it's a great solution that should handle all but the most convoluted requirements.

The software is very good and easy to use, implementation easy, and the documentation is very good. I have had reason to ask for support today and the OSE team has been very supportive and very FAST. My overall impression is that this group is highly professional and I feel in safe hands.

I had an older version (Joomla V1.5) that I had limited success with. My site took a nose dive from another component that I loaded (not OpenSource-Excellence) and since I needed to upgrade from Joomla V1.6 to 1.7, I needed some additional features that my last site didn't have. I went back to OSE and upgraded my component, but had some issues that were related to me. I received an email from the support group that they saw my new purchase and asked if they could be of some assistance getting the product loaded. I created a temporary admin user for them and went to bed. First thing the next morning I had another email saying everything went without a flaw and it was up and running!

Not only has their support services been far more customer related than any other company I have dealt with, but very timely.

Now I have been bragging about their support and customer service, now the product... I have had zero issues getting everything up and going. I have about twelve different membership plans. Some that are free, while others cost my vistors a bit of money. Each membership plan was so easy to set up and publish. You can feel at ease when you purchase the product for the first time and when you ever want to upgrade a support package, they cut their charges by aprox. 75%. WOW !!!

These guys should be your first choice for all of your website's structural needs.

Take Care To All!

I bought this component for use with Mosets Tree in August of last year. At that time it was 4.4.x. It was alright, not very impressed. Prior to my account expiring in August of this year, I downloaded version 5.0.16, but did not have time to update my site until last week. Boy, was I in for a surprise.

The team at OSE really worked hard to have a great addon to Joomla and MT. It was easy to update and easy to use. Everything is customizable -- from the coupons to outgoing e-mail notifications. It took me no more than 10 minutes or so to integrate with

Wishlist? None at the moment -- still playing with it. So far, I am a very happy camper.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a billing system for Mosets.
