Using the extension for a few weeks with no problems. I needed a customization and they were able to do it for me at a reasonable price; which it saved me lot of development time. The user guide is very helpful for beginners but if you need more advanced changes or question their support will reply promptly. Very happy with the component. Thank you!

Just perfect

After tried several component we are very satisfied to find this one which is far the best what we used till now.

Very easy to install

Easy to use menu

Many options for selection

Great et easy update.



And what is the most important - the fantastic support from Mr. Hung - would give the 10 * if we could



One word - Just perfect!
I don’t usually post reviews but I received such amazing support that I had to leave feed back. We are using CMgroupbuy that has been slightly modified so we could not up grade to the newest version. We needed to use paypal payment advanced for our website

but our older version didn’t have this functionality. I contacted Hung and within a week he had built a new plugin for paypal payment advanced for our older version of Cmgroupbuy along with instructions on how to configure paypal manager to make it work. The support with CMExtensions is fast, thorough and friendly. Everything works right out of the box. I would give them six stars if I could.
I really hope others see this review and take it seriously in consideration to make use of CMGroupbuying! THEY MUST Because...



First of all, my greatest respect to the developers and to Hun for a state of the art component, for close to immediate and high quality support, AND free development of the gateway plugin!!!



Thank you for a component that outperform itself compared to the other paid and non-paid components listed here.



After trying literally each and everyone of these 8 components listed here over the past year or so, as well as some other coupon listed components on the site, (and after buying and using two of the competition's components, and struggling with one of them for over a year with their support, and when I finally got somewhere with them I had to pay again for support and gateway development LOL LOL LOL)



I AM SO CROSS WITH MYSELF FOR NOT TRYING YOUR CMGROUPBUYING FIRST!!



The program is very easy to use and the manual easy to understand. Upgrading is also easy. And this is what one wants on top of fantastic support.



The Component can do as described by the developer and they take suggestions for future versions into account. This is a great Plus for them!



My Idea is defensively not to place a lot of honey or jam around CMGroupon's developers mouths, but really.. I've been working with Joomla since version 1. I wrote a view custom apps myself for my clients, and have a lot of clients for whom I give Joomla support, thus making use of components's support if there is trouble. I've been using CMGroupBuying for nearly a year now. CMGROUPBUYING TOP THEM ALL! Thanks Hun!



My God of the Holy Bible says there a lot about good and proud workmanship, hard work, and honesty and earning a good reputation. You are blessed because of that!

OUTSTANDING
