While setting it up for a client, I ran into some issues regarding restricting content and menu items to members. I emailed the support and Helix and his team fixed it right away - even though the problem was not associated with the product but just the way I setup the default restrictions in the core Joomla content component.
Several times I emailed him and each time I received a response within a few hours if not within a day. I'm very supportive of paying for quality components that have quality support and this is definitely one of those shining examples.
I've now tried 2 other products but this one put a smile on my face and made me happy since it qualifies all my general criteria - 5 stars from me on all 4 from me!
I've used this extension since version 4.4.x and it keeps getting better.
When i asked them about new payment processor for Ukrainian (Liqpay) they agreed to create this new functionality. Not very often you can see that developers react on your requests.
Great job, guys! The component is not cheap, but it definitely worth it!
My only complaint was some manual tweaking needs to be done for certain lines of displayed text. But, that is tedious, not difficult.
What impressed me the most was how well as a component it worked, and its interfacing with PayPal. Those are, of course, crucial to any subscription-based website.
What was stellar, though, was the support. I had some conflicts with other plugins, but after submitting a ticket their tech support responded very promptly and figured out a solution. They were very accommodating and went above and beyond in their trouble-shooting.
I needed to make another database synchronize with the OSE membership.
He answered my technical questions with additional hints for everytime I asked.
I owe him much gratitude.
Compared to another paid membership extension which I once introduced to my site,
this extension is easier to introduce and its bug fix is held more rapidly.
Though I'm satisfied with the quality and the support of this extension now,
if I try hard to find a drawback about this extension for you,
it would be the lack of the information about how to develop a cusom addon.
I'm afraid it may be only for my case,
but he and the wiki documentation about it's API tells me to write my code directly into the source,
which will require me to maintain my code when the source will be updated by the developer.
This extension would be better if it was, and if so, I might not bother him again and again.
If you have a pre-sales question, the support will answer soon,
and you'll be also satisfied with his answer.
OK, half part of my dream was realized. But still there was a question of how to implement the payment solution of my local bank. They obtained great support for this issue as well.
I feel very powerful with the presence of this support team. They are working like they are a part of my team, discussing the issues and coming up with new questions to elaborate the issue.
They are very fast. All of my tickets were answered within hours. All my issues were solved, they have even added some more customization to the core with my recommendation.
Thank you very much for making my dreams come true. Keep up the good work and the great suppport :-)
I am working on membership site and i buy two components for membership. First component was also good but probably for some professional coder, for me it was to complicated and my dead line for finishing my site was closing.
So i decide in this posts in Joomla JED that OSEmsc would be right component for me and my experience. O boy i am so glad to take this decision and buy this component now my site is almost ready for publishing.
Special thanks to their support team and Mr. Helix they are great and they will always help you resolve the problem. For shore i will buy some other software from them.
I have submitted more than ten tickets regarding my doubts & all. Every time, support is instantaneous and to the point and whenever I am not able to fix it, using my Cpanel id and password, they themselves had cleared every bug I had.
I requested a CCAVENUE payment gateway integration and promised them to give a test account which I was not able to provide in time. I was really worried whether they will take up and get engaged in some other work. But Shawn told me not to worry and they will be there for me, anytime.
And the Real Cool part is that, yesterday they integrated CCAvenue and fixed some other bugs I had by logging into my account, even though I am not able to provide them the CCAvenue test account till now.
I have no words to express about their cooperation and support. I would like to give 100stars or more regarding the product and their most excellent superb support.
Thumbs Up, along with delicious Royal Cheese Pastries, to Shawn and his team.
This extension is absolutely fantastic relative to its flexibility and capabilities. The Wiki documentation covers 95% of what you need to know to install and configure this extension and I highly recommend that you read through it at least once before jumping in. The product is not overly complicated but it does take a little time to understand it and avoid spinning your wheels
The support team on this product is also one of the best that I've encountered. I've submitted 3 tickets - 2 ended up being my misunderstanding of the configuration options and 1 turned out to be a bug. In all cases I got a meaningful and accurate response to my ticket within 1/2 hour of submitting it. Now, I wouldn't expect this rapid a response all the time and would be happy with a 12 to 24 hour turn-around but if this team can keep this pace going they are truly gifted.
If you need a robust and solid membership management and registration extension for Joomla you can't go wrong with OSE Membership - it's worth every penny!
The worst thing I can say about this software is that it is chock-full of settings and ways to customize it. So many features. And yet, it took me just a few minutes to set up and get working with a subscription plan.
When I got further into it and ran into problems, their customer service went above and beyond. Fixing things for me within minutes of my submitting a ticket.
Excellent software that works well. Full and detailed documentation. 5-star customer service. There is only great things I can say about OSE Membership.
Some may say it is expensive. I say it is worth every penny and more--especially given that the price includes a full year of customer service and support.
You really can not go wrong buying this software.
Compared to Amember, I've found the tech support to be 1000% better - sooooo important with complex extensions like membership software!
Thanks for a well-designed, powerful, and nicely-supported extension!
Yes, JDownload was supported in version 4, and the Addon for version 5 is under development, it will be ready in 3 weeks time, so you can get it in the new version then. ;)
Based on this experience, I wouldn't hesitate to use more OSE products.
the software have all the controls you need for a membership site. also the compatibility to other famous extensions is the most important part of it.
Excellent Product | Excellent support
