The plugin works perfectly and have successfully integrated to Joomla and Virtuemart. Besides the technical support at all times has been present and been resolved certain conflicts with the SSL version of my Server. It is also the problem that I transmitted to MGScreativa and they themselves have been able to find the problem and resolve it.

I bought this plugin some time ago and it worked perfectly. It is simple to install and is very useful for sites that use MercadoPago as a payment method.

The support is excellent and efficient. When I had problems with a new version of OpenSSL instaled in my server, the developer helped to solve the problem and even released an update promptly.
