The extension uses PayPal and Google Checkout as its payment systems, and comes with an inbuilt theme.

- Currencies: use up to 16 different currencies for your store
- Tax Rate: automatic cost calculation based on a tax rate
- Shipping: configure shipping costs for auto-calculation
- RokBox: product images use RokBox to display larger previews
- Style: inbuilt styling for rapid deployment
It works fine, the problem is only aesthetic, but if you are going to give something away free to attract new clients.....
I would say that functionally it deserves 4.5 stars (apart from this problem.)
I installed this component and was delighted in the first few moments.
I even discovered that it can be used in a responsive template, so visitors can buy items from their mobile device as well.
But when creating a new product, I saw only the options "color" and "size".
This is not what I need. The strangeness about the whole thing is, that I can add as many options under "color" and "size" as I need and insert my own words.
Wouldn't it be quite logic to do this with the options "size" and "color" as well?
In that case I would be able to use options like "material", "width", "height" and other infos I want to show to my visitiors so they can pick the possibilities they need.
If the variations of "color" and "size" can be dynamically added, it cant be too much of a hassle to ad dynamically more options than "size" and "color".
Than it will be just a smashing component!

One draw back is that it only has product size and color. There could be a variable description field that would let you place your own item name and attributes.
Example: Pet -> Dog, Cat, Pony etc.
It's a nice start for a small shop.
I was not able to make all records appear on one page however, which unfortunately means I cant use this extension (unless there is a way and I am missing it).
will be great if you could bring this in future, because your cart looks great and ajax is superb,
please arrange also directly by email, no google or paypal mode,
However, due to compatibility issues with Google Chrome, it does not show cart images of what you have added to your cart, only text filepaths. This looks bad, and leaves the customer wondering whether they are purchasing the actual item they wanted.
Rocket Theme have not offered a fix for this as yet, even on their paid subscription support forum, of which I am a member. They are oddly reluctant to comment on this glaring issue.
So unfortunately, as growing numbers of internet users migrate to Google Chrome, it leaves this potentially good extension, somewhat redundant.
I'm not a coder and can't do it by myself.
Maybe someone want to get an eye on that code?
