Ease of use
Very easy to use, if it worked. Good clean design flow to end user PayPal handling.
The documentation is good, if this component worked, or rather did not use legacy and deprecated 2.5 API code.
Value for money
You have to be a developer to use this code as you need to strip it all out, then re-assemble it as 3.x code with bootstrap.
I used this to: Membership subscription but not good enough so dropped it in favour of

No support at all

Nice Memberships seems to function very well. The registration form cannot be customized though, so this made it unusable for me.
Ease of use
Installation was a breeze but that is as far as I got.
Very minimal
Value for money
If you only need simple and easy, this might work for you. If you have a large, active website, then this is probably not going to hold up.
I used this to: I no longer use it. It only lasted about 2 days.
I was looking for a way to add subscriptions to one of our client's Joomla! sites and found this extension. Based on the previous reviews, I went ahead and bought it. The entire process was painless and I had it up and running in less than ten minutes. I had to do a manual install because my server isn't configured correctly, but the extension installed without a hitch.

Once I got it installed, the configuration documentation walked me through exactly what I needed to do to get up and running.

I added a few subscriptions and tested them by subscribing with my PayPal account. It worked perfectly the first time exactly as it should. I then unsubscribed from PayPal. Not only did I get an email from PayPal, but I got an email from the site telling me that my subscription had been cancelled.

I ran into an issue with the extension and posted on the extension's forum. I had an answer (and a solution) in less than an hour.

I highly recommend this extension if you are doing subscriptions on your site.
I bought the nice "bundle" of software which includes the membership software. Very reasonably priced, great documentation and easy to use but not lacking in functionality especially when combined with the other software available in the bundle. I did hit a couple of issues but support was excellent in sorting out my problems. I've tried other membership software in the past that has been more expensive and overly complicated & so took much longer to get working.

I would highly recommend the nice membership software and a big thanks to Michael for great support.

AMAZING Support!

The Nice Memberships extension is great. It's easy to use and does the trick. But, the best part is the support that Trinitronic provides. I had a couple of questions about configuring it with other extensions and the support team was awesome! They always responded within 24 hours and offered great solutions. Thanks for the help!

I have been using NiceMemberships for nearly 2 years to collect recurring subscriptions from PayPal to access my site. The product allows you to offer different subscriptions to different parts of the site.

It is very easy to use, you just enter a short coded string into a normal Joomla document. You can determine which access levels can see which strings etc.

All transaction (incoming payments) held in the database as are the subscribers. The subscription period can be for a specific length or on-going.

It is very easy to install and set up.

Nice membership & nice paypal button

I purchased the nice membership bundle (Jan 2014). So far I installed nice membership and nice paypal button. Both worked 'out of the box'.

I'm really amazed with the nice membership extension :D .I intalled '' version of nice membership (Jan 2014). I followed the same installation procedure in my joomla 3.2.1 sites , as I did in my joomla 2.5.17 sites (using the older version;, and everything worked perfectly.

Michael is very knowledgeable in his field and extremely thorough to any of your questions.

I give 5/5 stars to his extensions and 5/5 stars to his personal customer service.

If you wish to charge your online customers a fee, for example, to view your videos or anything else you choose to restrict access to, this is exactly the extension you need.

thanks Michael!!!

Works well

It was extremely easy to install and get working. The included memberships examples are very useful in getting up and running. The instructions are excellent and thorough. A limitation, which I understand they are working on, is membership payments are only currently (10/2012) taken through Paypal. Being able to add a manual membership - say someone came into the office and paid by check - will be a very useful improvement for an organization like mine. Thanks for your work!
This is a good component, though the documentation can be improved a bit more, it is simple to use for small business website. Good work!
I really appreciate the quick responses as well as the effort that goes into your emails when communicating with clients. You really have some great extensions (I started with Paypal Button), they work beautifully and the tutorials are well written. it is also nice to know you can count on the developer responding wuickly, unlike most. I really have to compliment you on your customer service, you left me speechless. Thank you for what your extension and your support has meant to my business.
