Is simple and working fine, easy to customize as you wish, very flexible and can be extended in a while.
Plug In to enable online payment are available also for J2.5 under a very low price (past week on JED was result only for J1.5, I apologize for bad review).
If you need a simple shop, this is the best solution: simple, easy to manage and customize, FREE.
The guys at k2store are very helpful if you have issues (I had an install issue that stopped items being added to the basket) and are quick to respond to emails.
One thing I would say is that if you are using this component to run an e-commerce and run into problems or issues, use the forum and if that doesn't get the results you need, then pay for the premium support or consider a donation!
We have just setup the paypal plugin today also and this took all of 10 minutes with no issues or problems to report.
An excellent addition to the K2 system and well done guys! Keep up the good work.
If you already use K2, an no brainer. Just add products, then the products will display in a K2 Content module. I bought the Paypal payment plugin.
For some reason, one of my products did not work at first. Ramesh provided quick support, and the problem mysteriously cleared.
A couple of little issues: Only one shipping method, the default Add to Carti is an ugly red, the CSS needs tweaking.
Overall, though, given how tough e-commerce can be to get right, this is good stuff, and I understand that new shipping methods are coming.
Not received any kind of support...so if feel its kind of poor performance end of the day..
Thanks Ramesh for quick and professional support.

*Some of the Global Configuration features would better added to the Dashboard.
Thank you for the review.
Yes we are improving a lot. New features, more enhancements to the UI and the overall design is coming up. The component is under heavy development.
Thank you once again
I appreciate the support of deasrroladores to solve any problems with the extension.
The communication is direct and very good with an excellent disposition.
The componet is very good and if it is difficult any kind of configuration, the developers are willing to fix it, that's great support!
Thank you very much...We really enjoyed your co-operation.
If you are thinking about downloading this extension, consider this your fair warning. Although they claim that this is an FREE, Non-Commercial e-commerce extension, its actually just a bait-and-switch/trick-a-roo to get you to invest a lot of time into setting it up only to discover that you can't actually use it unless you purchase a payment plug-in. They do not mention this in the script description nor on their website, making it look like it really is GPL open source.
Its really quite sad, because the extension works very well (at least up and until you try and actually purchase something) when you discover you need the playment plug-in.
I don't know if it actually works, hence I can not rate it any higher then a 2.
Thank you for the review.
1. It is a free extension. We need to have a some form of revenue to keep its development going on. So we have to sell the Payment Plugins.
Besides, many users do not want a payment integration. Plus we are not collecting huge amount. Just USD 10 for the plugin.
2. GPL does not mean that everything is free. Please have a look at the GPL licence at its website.
3. You do not need a lot of time to set up. You can get this add on up and running in just a few minutes.
4. It is clearly mentioned in the website that you can buy a payment plugin. It is not mandatory, however. All Plugins are GPL licenced.
You may be wondering why I have rated it so low? Read on...
Whilst the store is brilliant, there is no way to take online payment. You can purchase a Paypal payment plugin from the author for $10 which is very reasonable but there are no options to add shipping costs or different sizes or colours for a different product.
This basically renders the system useless unless you are selling ebooks or other downloads.
In conclusion, this component (and plugin) has great potential but it is simply not ready for public release. Don't waste your time or money at the moment but keep an eye on developments as this one could be great in future.
Thanks for the review. You should read the features and about the extension. it is a simple add on. It is NOT a full, feature packed shopping cart like Virtuemart. You did not even read the information and came up with this review. We never promised of shipping, tax or any large features of it.
Continued dialog with the developers has been very helpful. Our questions are promptly addressed and we we even asked for our feedback and suggestions.
This component installs easily and without a hitch. Works as advertised and we have not had one issue!
Thanks again for a great extension!
Its missing key features that you would hope to see, for instance theres no way to add variables to sale items (eg. red or blue) only change qty's so you may aswell just add a paypal button yourself!
Hopefully this component will mature quickly to do K2 justice and become a serious alternative to VM etc...
Keep at it Webligicx!
Thanks for the review. The initial release had just minimal features. But now we have released the K2 Store V 2, which addresses many issues. It is in Alpha stage now. you cna check it out in http://k2store.org
