Installation and configuration were simple and well documented, the component works smoothly.
Ossolution gets my full recomendation on this product and since I'm really pleased with the service I'll definitly hire them for individual jobs as well.
Don't pay attention to the previous two (bad) reviews, as those people clearly didn't know what they were purchasing or how to install/configure per instructions. I installed and configured the previous version (Documents Seller for Docman) in under 5 minutes without problem. And when I contacted support, they were prompt and courteous.
Additional the support is pretty poor and simply dissapaered.
We had accidently ordered the version for jomsocial, but needed the CB version, so I informed them about this, first they said that they would refund, but since we had already trouble with the setup, i asked if we could hire him for getting everything working, so instead of refunding us he could deduct it from the amount we would have to pay him.
They agreed and everything looked ok, but then they just vanished and now we have 2 versions, which we can't use since it simply doesn't work.
So my personal advise: Stay away from this extension if you are not on a high PHP level
First of all, I am sorry to hear that you could not get the extension setup and running.
Second, The extension does not have a version for JomSocial or CB . It just simply integrate with Community builder, so I am not sure you are talking about the correct version.
I have sold many copies of the extension and most of clients can get it work easily. Some of them cannot get it work, they just need to contact our support and everything will work fine.
The weakness of the extension is that it lack of document and client doesn't know how to set up and config it.(It requires upload a file which we hacked into Docman to over-write the original one and some clients get trouble with it).
Our support has been so good, not only for Document Seller for docman but also for other extensions : Joom Donation, CB plugins selection.. In the last days, the support were abit slow because I spent most of the time to develop new extension : Documents Seller. This extension has same functions with Documents Seller For Docman, work with Joomla 1.5 native, doesn't require Docman any more. Plus, it has some new nice features : Shopping cart, coupons, Tags...We also improved documents for the extension, setup a support tickets system to serve you better ,
To all visitor who read this review : Come to our site, look at the features of the new extension, you will see that it is the best extension for selling your downloadable products.
Why did you leave us this bad review and rating ?
The problem is that you don't know how to use the extension and didn't contact us for support . You just need to unzip and upload the file standardbuttons.zip file to folder plugins/docman (in Joomla 1.5) and mambots/docman (Joomla 1.0.x) and all will work fine .
And for this price, there is no alternative.
Thank you very much for a nice review and your suggestion . The cart feature were planed but we didn't have time to implement it before because we were busy for our project . Now , we are working hard on it and the next version will be released on next week .
The support is excellent and responsive and the price is right.
The thing even tracks your orders which you can then down load to CSV.
You can even upload stuff in CSV.
Does more than what it says :)
We are using their system to sell e-books in three different languages and so far we haven't got a single complaint. They deliver exactly what they promise + including a fantastic service!
It's so nice to download a Joomla product that actually works 100%...
So FIVE big shining stars from AWI-Group, Denmark
One thing though. The document URL is a predictable pattern. I think this means I can go to everybody's Docman seller site and leech free books.
I'll be happy to hear I'm wrong and turn this Good to an Excellent.
I was able to set up 300+ files for download with payment thru Paypal in one day - and I'm no pro.
Great support, very nice component. A great value.
Support is very quick and excellent.
This is the first time I spend my time to write a review on a component and I am happy to begin with this one.
The support was FANTASTIC. Well above and beyond what I would expect for an extension that only cost $US20 to download (with upgrades for a year!).
Thanks Ossolution and Joomservices, great work!
