Still works great with vm118/119, easy enough to modify and customize. Works great and definitely helps to increase sales, we've seen a nice boost since we've installed this module! Exactly what we were looking for! Thank you! :)
Virtuemart Sale countdown timer
According to the other reviews, I thought I'd give this mod a chance, but this mod in my opinion shouldn't be for sale yet, it needs a lot more refining. Configuration does not work, you need to manually alter php & ini files to get anything to work properly. Something as simple as changing wording is not simple. The countdown time is off by hours and support is lacking and extremely vague in how to fix this. Luckily I know php and css to an extent that I can make due but for the beginner this mod is not worth $35 and the pain you need to go through to get it working properly. Also their buy it now option does not send you a link to download automatically as they say it does, I had to write several emails to get the mod dl link... not a good experience at all. I suggest creating a config file that allows for easy alteration and modification, rather than the current setup. It'd be nice if you could modify within joomla rather than manually coding it after the fact. Should be free in its current state... $35 for what you get is a rip off, it's an incomplete/buggy mod.
Owner's reply

Dear Ben,
Your review is quite unfair, I would like to clear your queries yet again :
1) Altering php files : Please understand that one cannot overwrite Virtuemart template files (These files are not always common and its code is completely different depending on the VM templates used. It is only possible to use embed code to display the timer wherever needed. - This is a programming limitation and not possible through creating any config files as much as I understand)

2)The timer is not off even by a second - Infact The time is not created by the module itself, it is rather fetched from the Virtuemart discount parameters you created within the product discount list in Virtuemart. If there is such a problem, then it lies within your VM/Joomla misconfiguration on your webserver.

3)The module when purchased is immediately delivered - I did clearly explain that our purchases are instantly delivered to your paypal registered email address. This does sometimes get filtered in your Junk/Spam folders within your email clients/ spam protection engines. Besides that we do respond back to all our customers within 12-24 hours (considering timezone differences). - I did send you personal responses to you myself within 1 day I checked in logs.

I believe it is a misunderstanding on your part.

Thanks
Cecil

AwoCoupon Starter
Just purchased the pro version today, it's simply amazing! The support is unparalleled, the dev team literally got back to me within 5minutes when I had an issue with child category/products and the coupon system. Solution worked flawlessly! So much control over the coupon system, I'm flabbergasted after using virtuemart's pre-installed coupon system which as most joomla/vm users are aware of, quite simply sucks. Finally we have a worth-while coupon/gift cert system that we have full control over! AWESOME!!!!!!!!
