I so want to love this component, but it just confuses the heck out of me sometimes. I'm a pretty tech-savy guy, but I have to have the manual next to me to do much of anything with CB on my site.

Don't get me wrong: it is strong, robust, powerful and feature-rich... but it's not intuitive. I hope the developers will look into that in the future.

If you want to use this extension--by all means accept my recommendation--and be sure to put on a pot of coffee as you set it up.

I really love this extension. I use it all the time. I wish the display of attachments was a little "prettier" but I like it nonetheless. Highly recommended!

VirtueMart is the big player for ecommerce in the Joomla world and I like it; I just wish it included things like multi-currency transactions (being able to set item prices in a specific currency, then use some open source data to calculate totals based on current exchange rates, etc.

It gets a little frustrating at times when configuring, but its is still worth the effort.

I'd like to see a lot more in the way of reporting and tools that are of more use to a larger ecommerce site. Processing orders is still a little cumbersome from the back end.

This component is pretty near as simple as it could be with all the features it includes. I really like this. I look forward to continued development where more features will be added!
