On the bad side…there is a huge list. More important: ‘DOWNLOAD’ does NOT work properly. The first problem I had was that when the user downloads documents from ‘my account’ the link never expired. Twan fixed it within a week. Then it became apparent that if the user orders the same document for second time, all the previous links in my account became active again and never expired. After 10 days and several emails Twan send me a new version. This time it is the ‘checkout’ that does not work. I cannot make an order and in order to test the new function I have to reinstall the previous version, make the order, reinstall the new one and then check my account. In any case I CANNOT use it in my site.
Furthermore, there are several minor problems: in some pages, the text is not visible in some version of Internet Explorer (CSS problem). CSS are very inconsistent – some buttons are of the class ‘button’; others are not. As a result if you use the class ‘button’ of your template, only half of the buttons will change.
Also, you cannot test in PayPal sand box (Twan asked me to take his word that it works in PayPal – I was very willing to do it at the beginning but with the ‘download’ problem that is not fixed for almost 3 weeks, how can I?). Another problem I had at the beginning was that the date of the order was not recorder correctly.
I bought this program 50 days ago – I’ve lost almost two months and still I do not have a program where at least its main function works. I cannot imagine that (at least the versions emailed to me) were tested. The problems were extremely obviously and I discovered them within half an hour after I installed it. Since February I fell I offer free testing to Twan.
As for the service, I prefer not to comment. Twan sets the deadlines and then he says that he has a lot of works and asks for more time. He asked several times to have another extension and I did respect that he has a lot of work. Unfortunately he did NOT respect my own work and my time.
Summarising, my suggestion is to try any other program before you try this.
I had a single product to sell on my website & DMS was the perfect solution.
I definately recommend products from OSSoultions.
I tried another component that I won't name that had so many steps before checkout that most potential customers just gave up... choose file, sorry you must login, where is the login?, where is the product again?, check the cart, add to cart, fill in your details, go to checkout, pay, where is the download link? Phew, hard work!
With document seller your customers don't even need to login they just choose the file, fill in their details, pay then have several options to instantly download the file... easy!
As an added bonus, Tuan gives the best support I have ever experienced for a paid component.
Highly recommended and worth every cent!
I had some minor modifications to my layout made to the component by Tuan for a small fee. He did this in a very respectable time frame. They have terrific support and a good reliable component for selling documents online.
What surprised me, was the quick response to a problem (dealing with the IPN from Paypal that was not activated).
And even more : I asked for a plugin for sh404SEF and they start at once working on it ! I should have it on next days.
Good work! And so pleasant to have somebody helping us...
Installed on a Jooomla 1.5, made the setup for three documents with prices, tested with paypal sandbox and live and worked as advertised on the first try.
Good job Tuan!
Tuan answered questions quickly and clearly. When I pointed out a very minor glitch, he fixed it immediately.
This is my first experience developing a site for myself, and my first experience with eCommerce. I thought the eCommerce thing would be complex and difficult, but it took me less than 1 hour installing Documents Seller, learning its basic use, creating some categories and products, linking to paypal, and successfully sell my first product.
Bottom Line: the technical part of eCommerce was the easiest part of my project thanks to Documents Seller.
The extension worked exacly as it should, there are a lot of clearly organized configuration options, and it is very easy to use.
I also got very good support from the developer. I asked him for some customizations, and he developed them ovenight! Fast and efficient support.
I totally recommend this extension.
I confirm that it is extremely easy to use, simple but powerful, I use to sell some videos or pdf that I produce.
I can also confirm that the author is extremely active and available to solve any problems.
I recommend this extension.
Packed with useful features, nice and simple interface. It is worth its weight in gold.
These guys really make you feel life after all is not so complicated as we make of it.
Thanks a lot
It's extremely powerful and easy to use.
I really don't think there is anything else out there that can compete.
Below are my favorite things about it:
EASY TO USE:
I used this on my first Joomla! Site and it was one of the easiest things to set up. Everything works like it's supposed to.
I showed my friend virtually everything there is to know about how to use it in an afternoon and he was off and running! (He hadn't even touched Joomla yet.)
GREAT FEATURES: (I know some of these are already listed but I have to reiterate.)
- Unlimited nested categories!
- Quick Edit feature to edit multiple products at once. (very useful)
- Product Thumbnails, large and small
- Product Descriptions, short and/or detailed.
- Sell any type of file, if it's not already on the list just add it. (simple)
- Send digital goods via email or customer can download directly from your site.
- SEO friendly. Meta descriptions and keywords per product and category.
- Front-End upload capability. Great if you need others to be able to contribute products to your site.
- File search module included.
- File Tags module included.
- Popular and Latest Module included.
- Mini cart module included.
It comes with the ability to use authorize.net and PayPal. Additional gateways are available for around $20 each. You can even take off-line orders.
About a month after setting up the site, a glitch started happening in Document Seller. Not sure if it was my fault or not but Tuan had me fixed up within 48 hours of submitting a support ticket.
I also asked him if I could make a change to how the front-end upload works. He told me how, and when I couldn't do it, he did it for me!
PRICE: $20 Worth much more in my opinion!
To anyone considering this extension who is still on the fence:
Stop wasting your valuable time combing through the extensions directory and BUY THIS NOW! :)
Thank you Tuan and the OS Solutions Team!
