Installed free version. Found it to function ok. The item display overlaps.
This is why no more than 1 star.
Contacted Niaz and he advised he could fix if we upgraded to PRO. We upgraded and he was to work on it after EID Festival. We said ok. A week after the festival he emails and asks if we still need the changes. We advised yes. No response for a couple of more days, so we sent another email and still no response. We just wrote off the fee and went with another more robust e-commerce solution and found it to not need any tweaking.
I thought the free package was amazing and wanted to add a few extra things so upgraded to the paid version, which at twenty nine dollar (one off) I thought was excellent, very good value indeed.
Needing a few changes I found Niaz very prompt and nothing seemed too much for him. Great service, look forward to using the product.
I got what I expected from this plugin, it’s super-easy and fast to setup and learn how to use it properly.
Also, I had a problem with an Item but the support was really good and fast.
Keep up the good work!
I’m creating a new review.
Initially the support was great.
Then when I wanted a modification, it all went to hell. I paid 50USD for a modification. I explained in clear English what I was looking for. I provided screenshots, drawings, and forms.
Niaz made something COMPLETELY different. In the end I fixed it myself. 50USD gone obviously.
Great plugin if you’re looking for a basic shopping cart, but don’t get ripped off by paying for a modification.
Before you pay, niaz is gentle and quick, after…
Lots of bugs, niaz don’t stop to ask you money to solve them…
My advice: If the free version works for you, stay with it, but I you want more, buy an other plugin.
Niaz provides great support for his product. We had a problem we created but he stepped up to the plate and fixed it very quickly for u. Thank-you! I’ll for sure use your cart again for other wordpress sites.
