The Nice PayPal Downloads extension is a robust download manager that allows you to distribute files for free or for paid download. What makes Nice PayPal Downloads unique is its overall flexibility and ease of use. Once you have uploaded your file and created and an item record for it, you can place a purchase button in any article or custom module. This extension does away with the outdated method of restricting downloadable files to a pre-designed listing area of your site. This liberates you to turn any article or Joomla page into a point of sale or distribution center for your files.

lousy support

Posted on 27 January 2016
purchase is not going to happen after the customer download link
Value for money
I used this to: 2 months I put on Michael mail per component.
but I think the guys michael Mars.
I gave $ 35 to get shame.

Good Support

Posted on 29 September 2015
Works as it should
Ease of use
Its not too fiddly to set up, and careful reading of the documentation can resolve any issues
Great support - I asked for an update for the SHA-256 encryption for J1.6 - 2.5 and got it within a day.
Very clear
Value for money
Very good - saves a lot of work
I used this to: Music sites that have a pay now function for tracks and albums.
seems to destroy pdf-files during download. No Support!! No Reaction
Ease of use
if it would work it would be great
Value for money
Nothing at the moment

this extension was a godsend, I have used it on a few sites now, and when a server change triggered an issue on one site the developer helped with a solution and followed up to ensure it the problem was solved.
This is an AWESOME PRODUCT! I installed it in minutes ... went thru the documentation in less than 10 minutes ... configured thru PayPal, and was selling downloadable items in less than an hour! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Forum at developers site is full of great info!
With the Nice Paypal Downloads Package, I was able to solve the problems I was having with other paid and free Paypal integration extensions.

The log feature is great even if you aren't selling Downloads.
This is a great extension that I’m really pleased with. Also love the Documentation and the Trouble Shooting in the community/support section of the developers website. All is very clear and straight forward.

This extension is also really easy to use which is important if you’re setting ut a site for an end user who isn’t very advanced.

So if you want to sell downloadable stuff, Nice PayPal Downloads is my No 1 choice that I’d be happy to recommend.

I never normally write reviews (too lazy!) but I had this up and running in no-time and felt that if anyone else needed this functionality I should recommend this extension. It was excellent for me and just what I wanted! Nice work and well worth the money! The hardest part to set up is at the PayPal end and you cant blame TriniTronic for that. Well Done Guyz.

Simply Brilliant

Posted on 14 December 2012
Incredibly happy with Nice PayPal downloads. It is more than simply nice it is simply brilliant! The instructions are clear, the service is excellent and the component is just what I was looking for.

I had a technical issue with the downloading link from the customer's email - turned out to be a language issue which was easily rectified with a little tweaking around.

Definitely worth paying for.
This extension is truly nice! I've been using it for about 6 weeks with virtually no trouble. I had a small issue that was quickly solved by the developer in the support forum. This extension is very easy to install and setup.

I love how the checkout process is so fast. As soon as you click on the buy it now button, it takes you straight to the paypal page. This is very important to me because many users are too impatient to fill out a form and then have to go to paypal to fill out another form!

This extension is perfect for anyone looking for a reliable extension for digital downloads long as you're okay with having paypal as the only payment option. That's fine with me, I don't want to bother with setting up other payment options anyway, I'm lazy lol! It was well worth the price in my opinion.
