Reviews

Great customer support, great plug-in!

I spent hours looking for a plug-in that would do what GS Books Showcase can do, and when I broke a page on my website, Golam Samdani jumped right in, and within fifteen minutes he found what I had done to break my page and fixed it. So glad I found this plug-in.

Ottimo Plugin

E’ stato un ottimo acquisto. Il plugin è ben fatto e facile da usare.
Molto importante è il supporto online: rapidissimo ed efficace.

Exactly what I needed / Awesome support

Plugin worked out of the box with the latest WordPress version.
Pro version has additional templates and everything but what I came to understand is that I actually payed for the awesome support, well worth the money!
