PLEASE NOTE: J2store is a simple, easy to use shopping cart. It offers all the neccesarry features you need in a cart, but has no extra features like full shipping methods, zone/region based shipping, stock control or track-and-trace. If you need that kind of features in your cart, you'll have to look for an other cart.If you just want a simple, sleek, effective shopping cart, J2Store is just right for you!
How it works:
1. Install J2Store, configure and save the params.
2. Go to the Article Manager, create a new article
3. On the right-side sliding panel, you will find J2Store sliding panel. Click to open it and enter the price.
4. (optional) you can also set tax rates (for which you should create tax profiles in the J2Store backend)
5. (optional) Set product attributes and options
6. Save and publish the article.
Voila! you have just created a product ready to sell.
The forum is managed by the developpers and i got all problems solved and all questions answered. I like it.
That said support was good and refunded my purchase. I just wish it had worked out. It was very nice to work with otherwise.
J2Store is one easy and simple extension to use. It works right out the box and is easy to install.
The configuration is straight forward and the documentation is written in plain English. I was on the forum yesterday (day after Thanksgiven) and the staff was manning the forum.
I tried this after trying several other extension and this one is the best.
This is a "non-commercial" version but only the base is. For any functionality you need to pay at least the $10.
You can pay to have them install it too but it's really simple and I doubt they do a lot of installations, but a novice user would find it worth it to have it installed.
The features are so straight forward it's scary. Just make an article with product info and add a price. Compare this to RedShop that charges you out the *ss and gives you a complicated system that hardly works.
If you need a shop, use this one. Stop wasting your time elsewhere. :-)
Thanks for the review. J2Store is a simple shopping cart aimed for beginners. We are working on a tax profile feature that works with shipping address. But with less contribution from the community, we are battling against time.
My only insight: mark it better that you can use this for digital downloads!! It took me 2 days to find this component - and there are tonnes of guys on the web asking for a simple component for digital downloads (I found all the forums while I was searching LOL).
Awesome component! Will definitely use this developer again.
It is almost perfect.
Just one small thing - - when in the checkoutprocess I miss the possibility to cancel/stop and
get back to the buying place without having to trycka på the back button
(like you have when checking out the receipt there is a button where you
can get back to the checkoutprocess - return to the checkout process)
The concept of this store (make any Joomla-article an item in your shop) is ingenious and very easy to use.
Easy to set up initially and maintenance of your shop doesn't require extra skills. If you can write an article, you can run this shop.
The developers give active support on their forum.
4 stars for now, because just a littlebit of finetuning is needed, but 5 starts are within reach!
