Since CBSubs by Joomlapolis is a VERY expensive extension i was giving a try to PPD first and i have to say i was happy i did.
Installing easyly, well setting up needed a bit of understanding how the extension exactly workes ... but very friendly and quick support was on the way by Ratmil.
Had only some little pitfalls with SEFed Categories on J1.5.
But Ratmil is doing a great job in supporting and throwing new versions every once in a months.
Great extension, very fair priced, great support - highly recommeded !!!
At the beginning it may appear not so complex but it works really well and is great for selling not only downloads but in general access to Joomla content and resources.
It easy to setup and understand.
The price is absolutely fair and support very good and fast!!!
(Of course you have to pay a little extra, but if you are serious with this you are about to make some money with it anyway, right?)
Thanks for this nice component!
PS: Also checkout other plugins and components like Encrypt for secure login.
I will add SEF for next release.
If I face any issues with the extension, he immediately fixes it and notifies in person about the new version.
I have couple of features to be included in the component and he added them quickly and uploaded the latest version.
I also some download issues with his site because I used download manager to download the extension which exhausted all my download limits. He understood that and reset my download limit.
I just paid USD 10 but the support he provides is great.
I wish him a great success.
Hats off to the admin.
- Needed some learning and training period till arrive to understand its concept and how works, to be able to change the way I'm currently offering my products / services... but finally worth every effort and of course, every cent I paid for the GOLD licence.
- I needed to integrate my old users to the new system linked to a license and 'Ratmil' created a new complementary component than performed the import users job in a breeze!... Awersome!
'Ratmil' thanks a lot for sharing this excellent component and again, thank you, thank you, thank you for your close support and patience answering my doubts & questions!
I found PPD and it works perfectly doing everything I want. It took a little while to understand but the author of PPD, Ratmil, was very patient and explained things I didnt understand. In the end, I now have the ability to sell articles that authors put online, on their behalf and it all works excellently.
I dont sell download of files, I have to admit so havent tried that part of it but if you want to sell articles online, this is the program to use!
Combined with the possibility of PhocaDownloads to restrict access to files only to certain categories of users, fixes many problems related to online payment.
It also offers the option of paying not only for a single file but for a "license" too, and this is really useful and easy to manage, as well as upgrading and renewal of licenses.
Hi, thank you for your review.
Please, contact me on PPD site and tell me what are "problems related to online payment", so I can fix them on future versions.
