I installed this extension on my site, and I found it being very versatile. It does what the vendor says it can do.

If you are a professional like me, selling any downloadable product of any kind, this is the software for you... Mugisa M

I installed this component hassle free and configuration is intuitive. I managed to get stuck once, but support was fast and the problem quickly resolved.

If the front end user navigation is improved and displayed the folder structures I would rate this product 5 stars!
Owner's reply

Thanks for your feedback . In fact, the two mentioned features were in Documents Seller already :

1. For navigation, users can navigate easily between pages : Category page, documents list, checkout.... They can also come back to previous pages using the links in the pathway. Did you enable pathway module on your site ?

2. For folder structures : Documents seller allows you to place your documents in folder / sub-folders already.

BTW, Documents Seller is an on-going development extension, so suggestions from customer like you is always welcome :) .

Thanks ,

I registered an account here just to tell the world about the amazing support I have just received from Tuan. Not only is the product exactly what anyone selling digital downloads needs, the support for this extension is superb.

I requested a new feature, Subscription based downloads, and before I had a chance to leave the site's contact portal there was already a personal response awaiting in my inbox from Tuan informing me of how and when he was intending on implementing this new functionality. Naturally, I assumed that the response was an automated e-mail for my question due to the speed of the replay, but after two more back and forth e-mails containing even more specific and personalized answers, I realized it was the core programmer answering my questions PERSONALLY!!!

Thanks and I recommend anyone who wants a versatile yet simple solution to digital downloads to give 'Document Seller' a try!

I've been trying some document download modules, but none suited my wishes. I needed a way to offer free downloads, but with a required form to fill in. Also the fields had to be prefilled in a new form if the visitor decided to download more than one document. Document seller came closest, but wasn't quite right yet. So I contacted Thuan and he added the features for me. Thank you, Thuan!

If you want to sell digital products, is the best!

I'm currently running a website for a customer here in Puerto Rico. y customer wanted to sell podcast in his webpage and I really didn't know how to do that with Joomla. When I saw the DMS, I said to myself this is what I need! The DMS is one of the greatest components in the Joomla Community and Tuan assisted me on some small problems I had. 5 Star Rating For This Great Component!

I have just spent the weekend installing this on a site for selling specialist documents for individual use and have to say its very comprehensive, easy to use and Tuan is very responsive to support requests.

I think if the author continues to develop this application it could be a top product in its field.

This is a great extension and while the user doco is a bit light on, the support has been quick and very helpful.

A couple of small improvements, such as including tax rates and shipping and it will be even better - but there is a work around with paypal.

The integration with paypal is smooth and painless, especially for novice joomla users.

Looking forward to seeing what future updates bring!

I have been dying for this software - it is everything I needed and more. It is also everything you promised.

For the last 6 months I had been using the old DocMAN seller - and although it was okay - it wasn't the end-user experience I had hoped for.

in addition, my customers had to make multiple purchases (one at a time) and I believe I lost a lot of business because of the cumbersome process.

Then along came the new DMS Docseller.

Installation and configuration were a breeze, and the user experience/flow as well as functionality are awesome.

Thanks for your personal attention to my case on your forums.

Looking forward to what you come up with next.


ps - $20 bucks? A steal!

When it comes to selling downloads from your website you really want three things from an extension:

1. A hassle-free installation of the extension
2. An intuitive way for your customers to make a purchase
3. Some support from the developer should there be an issue.

Documents Seller is one of the most powerful, well thought-out extensions I have seen in years, delivering on points 1 & 2 flawlessly.

Tuan, delivers on point 3 with such professionalism that you realize instantly why points 1 & 2 are so effortlessly there.

As it happens, I happened to have a request which had not been catered for. Tuan turned it round within eight hours and made it available for download.

This is high-quality work, backed by rock-solid support. Definitely deserves your support and deserves to do well. One of those times when I can say with total confidence that you will not be disappointed.

I can't say enough about the high level of support for this component.

I only had one document to sell so wanted customers to be able to push the PayPal Buy Now button and go straight to PayPal and then once paid receive an email with the download link. I didn't want a shopping cart.

I had tried other extensions without success and no support but Tuan customised his extension so I could achieve what I wanted. He really went out of his way which I really appreciated.

The extension has nice clean code and is easy to install and configure.

With so many extensions available its not often that one really stands out. Documents seller is a first rate extension and the service is outstanding!

It's DocMan on steroids, has great features and the Documents Seller team is helpful as (special thanks to Tuan from Allen).

If you have used DocMan then much of its look and feel will be familiar. If not, then there is a learning curve, but worth the effort. The only negative I could see was a lack of documented instructions, but this is being addressed.

In short, if your serious about selling online then this is an extension you should take a good look at and consider the purchase (even if, like me, you don't generally buy extensions).

Though I'm a regular user of Joomla components/modules regularly, this is my very first review and I am happy to give it.

Installation - Easy to install and configure. I was up and running in a matter of minutes. Though I only had one pdf document, I was excited to see how powerful Documents Seller. I can see that it will fit our needs as we grow and add more documents.

Support - I posted several questions on the forum that got answered within minutes. I felt like I was talking to them in realtime. When I couldn't figure out a problem I was having, I contacted the support team on Skype. I provided him with backend access to help troubleshoot a problem I had for hours. He figured out the problem within 10 minutes. Tuan is the man!! He is not only technically sharp, but patient and respectful. This made it worth every penny. You can't find better support for a product than these guys. I highly and enthusiastically recommend them!

As my team's Joomla guru, I feel like Tuan and his support team have my back, so I'm never at a loss. Great product, tremendous, helpful, fast, courteous support. No regrets here!
