The components provide out of the box functionality for "groupbuy" types sites including a useful template. A vast array of options to use.

Ease of use

Everything works "out of the box", sensible options allowing you to shape how the component acts and looks. Not complicated Quick n easy!


Absolutely sensational! 2nd 2 none. Developer responded quickly, courteously & did not shy away from modifications supporting my objectives.


Relatively good compared 2 many other extensions I've used. Extensive in extension help is available and makes set up and configuration easy

Value for money

Reasonably priced 4 quality of this extension & developer was reasonably priced 4 minor modifications. Developer "bulk" buy worth investment

I used this to: I've successfully used this component 2 create a site for a local community retail group who required groupbuy & limited buy offers 2 registered site members. Using with Joomla and JSN template framework with minor mods. Robust and well written. Recommended. Cheers Shooter.


Definitely fundamentally properly designed component for managing websites for group purchases.

Ease of use

It is because of proper design and concept of the component extremely easy to use and it is practically impossible to not be able to use it.


Completely my every question and request for modification has been solved in one day.


he attached documentation is at the level of the professional user. Until the details are described all the functionality of the components.

Value for money

Component for which we can say that it is worth every euro or dollar.

I used this to: My first encounter with the component CMGroupBuy extends year ago when I manufactured a website for a client. Even then I saw that it is a great component. Now I make my site with a component CMGroupBuying and from day to day, I note that I decided to completely correct.

Ease of use

Grate User Friendly Functions


Fantastic Support and Quick Response .......

Value for money


I used this to: Last 6 Months

Using the extension for a few weeks with no problems. I needed a customization and they were able to do it for me at a reasonable price; which it saved me lot of development time. The user guide is very helpful for beginners but if you need more advanced changes or question their support will reply promptly. Very happy with the component. Thank you!

Just perfect

Posted on 29 June 2014

After tried several component we are very satisfied to find this one which is far the best what we used till now.

Very easy to install

Easy to use menu

Many options for selection

Great et easy update.

And what is the most important - the fantastic support from Mr. Hung - would give the 10 * if we could

One word - Just perfect!

I don’t usually post reviews but I received such amazing support that I had to leave feed back. We are using CMgroupbuy that has been slightly modified so we could not up grade to the newest version. We needed to use paypal payment advanced for our website

but our older version didn’t have this functionality. I contacted Hung and within a week he had built a new plugin for paypal payment advanced for our older version of Cmgroupbuy along with instructions on how to configure paypal manager to make it work. The support with CMExtensions is fast, thorough and friendly. Everything works right out of the box. I would give them six stars if I could.

I really hope others see this review and take it seriously in consideration to make use of CMGroupbuying! THEY MUST Because...

First of all, my greatest respect to the developers and to Hun for a state of the art component, for close to immediate and high quality support, AND free development of the gateway plugin!!!

Thank you for a component that outperform itself compared to the other paid and non-paid components listed here.

After trying literally each and everyone of these 8 components listed here over the past year or so, as well as some other coupon listed components on the site, (and after buying and using two of the competition's components, and struggling with one of them for over a year with their support, and when I finally got somewhere with them I had to pay again for support and gateway development LOL LOL LOL)


The program is very easy to use and the manual easy to understand. Upgrading is also easy. And this is what one wants on top of fantastic support.

The Component can do as described by the developer and they take suggestions for future versions into account. This is a great Plus for them!

My Idea is defensively not to place a lot of honey or jam around CMGroupon's developers mouths, but really.. I've been working with Joomla since version 1. I wrote a view custom apps myself for my clients, and have a lot of clients for whom I give Joomla support, thus making use of components's support if there is trouble. I've been using CMGroupBuying for nearly a year now. CMGROUPBUYING TOP THEM ALL! Thanks Hun!

My God of the Holy Bible says there a lot about good and proud workmanship, hard work, and honesty and earning a good reputation. You are blessed because of that!

CM K2 Inline is a Joomla! component helping you customize K2 component’s back-end item list and edit extra field inline. K2 is the popular powerful content extension for Joomla with CCK-like (content construction kit) features. Every item of K2 can be extended by extra fields. If the most important part of your K2 content is extra fields then you would find it difficult to modify your K2 items. You need to go to item list, click an item, click Extra Fields tab, modify extra fields, save the item, go back to the list, click an item, and so on... It is also difficult for you to compare the extra field values of your K2 items. You can't open 10 browser tabs to check and compare 10 items. CMK2Inline is designed to help you on this - manage extra fields in K2 with ease. Features Show/hide columns in K2 item list. Change ordering of the columns. Add columns for extra fields to the list. Add/edit value of extra fields in-place. Add/edit value of an extra field for many K2 items at once. Use AJAX to save extra fields. Popup notification for the result of AJAX request. Tool to create/delete override layout file right in Joomla! back-end. Support the following extra field’s types: Text field Textarea (Editor is not supported) Drop-down selection Multi-select list Radio buttons (Displayed as drop-down selection to save space) Date Technical Requirements Joomla! 3.x.x: CM K2 Inline is NOT compatible with Joomla! 1.x.x or 2.x.x, only Joomla! 3.x.x is supported. Please check Joomla! 3’s technical requirements for more information. Bootstrap 2: CM K2 Inline is NOT compatible with Bootstrap 3. Bootstrap 2 is available by default in Joomla! 3.x.x. The default template of Joomla! back-end (Isis) uses Bootstrap 2, so this template is recommended, if you use a custom back-end template, it must support Bootstrap 2. K2: CM K2 Inline was tested on K2 2.6.5, 2.6.6, 2.6.7, 2.6.8 and 2.6.9. For more information about K2 component, please visit
