I don't like to leave bad reviews, but this time I must so that others don't make a mistake. I paid good money for this to use on a site that uses jdownloads or phocadownload. It has a fundamental flaw in that it is not designed to work unless there is a user account already in Joomla (or is setup abd active in the process of paying). This makes setting permissions a nightmare. The add-ons, installs and other finicky plugins and attachments just make life long and difficult. If you want users to pay before they get an account, definitely go with another component. I paid good money knowing there is a no refund policy and ended up using another component which took care of it for less money.

The logic of the plug-in is: when a visitor joins a membership, he/she is asked to register first,
but if he/she doesn't go through the whole payment process, his/her joomla user account will be

Therefore, please submit a ticket in the support system and we will give you the download link for this plugin then.
