I had a little problem with the paypal configuration and the author solved it in the minute.
Anyway, rather that setting up a whole Virtue Mart solution to just sell one product, this is the solution to solve the impossibility to set up a simple download with no hasssle !
I did have occasion to contact the developer, to ask a question. The developer was prompt and courteous as he gave me step by step instructions to resolve my issue. Upon reading the resolution steps, I realized that the issue did not lay with the extension, but with my limited knowledge of Joomla! He could have easily directed me to a Joomla! forum to find the answers, but he cared enough to go above and beyond to assist me with the answer anyway. For that, I will be eternally grateful and a loyal customer. Thank you.
Also I have a problem and less one hour I was answered.
I know that this product is not explicitly for audio files, but it's was one of the more up to date extensions available and very configurable.
The installation and configuration process was great, thanks to detailed, easy to navigate documentation that even helped me get PayPal test accounts up and running.
I've found that for each product available for download, a menu item must be added, and then linked to. The menu item doesn't appear in the JCE hyperlink browser under the menu though, so you need to copy the alias that was generated and paste the entire URL for your hyperlink - this is not so user-friendly for my client.
I would also like to see the ability to insert documents into content or modules. And, I think a file upload tool within the component would be ideal too.
Thanks though for a such a great component!
Of course, there is still a room for improvements but most essential requirements are already implemented. The support is responsive and finally, the extension is fairly priced.
A perfect component for paid downloads.
I also like the integration with Paypal. I wasn't able to get the sandbox testing working but that was an issue with Paypal and not Mediashop. The paypal setup was quick and painless for the live account.
It's not to say that this is a perfect, unpack from the box and put it in Joomla, but if you are willing to explore a little and read the excellent documentation then you should be very satisfied.
I would recommend this extension to anyone that is looking for an easy solution for selling digital media that offers some controls like limited downloads for a limited time.
The only reason that I did not give it a full 5 Star rating is because I would like to not have to log into an FTP to upload the files. I know that there are extensions available for Joomla but it would make it much easier if you could do that from within the component.
Good job, keep up the good work!
I have not used alsot joomla but was piece of cake to set it up and get it runing. :)
Very good instruction included. If the instruction is readed then there wont be any problem.
I just needed this kind of extension to setup my shop for files to download after the payment is done. This is what the extension also do.
Also very good group management.
Support works like lightning.
To use this application for reselling digital images, I found that MediaShop is very cumbersome and time consuming to the point of being painful.
HOWEVER - If you are selling a limited number of files that only need product name and descriptions to motivate your customers to purchase, this is a great plugin.
I would be interested to discuss this and get your ideas for improvements. Please contact us.
Also there's a great user guide which answers everything you might wanna know. I've tried alot of other Paid Downloads components but MediaShop is the only tool that does best. Great work.
This is nonsense, of course, just like the first review. MediaShop already far exceeds the capabilities of many of the other extensions in this category. It looks like we have a few rattled a few cages though!
