CBSubs Testimonials

We love the power and flexibility that CBSubs gives us for managing users' profiles. The learning curve on our first project was time well spent as we are now doing things with Joomla that we didn't think were possible. That's why we are now working on our 10th CBSubs project!
Joe Palmer, www.softforge.co.uk
When CBSubs was released I could immediately see the potential of this system, especially for membership sites. We have been using CBSubs on www.issba.co.uk for the past year and a half, managing a combination of online PayPal and offline cheque/BACS payments for the Ipswich and Suffolk Small Business Association. Some features which were not present when it initially launched (such as reminder emails, tax systems, coupons) which have been subsequently implemented, showing that the developers are listening and responding to their users. There are other systems on the market but the potential of CBSubs is really quite incredible if you're willing to take the time to explore what it can do.
Ruth Cheesley
I can't say enough about CBsubs. I have used several of the Joomla subscription extensions and CBsubs is by far the best out there. It integrates with CB perfectly, allows tight control over all of your site, and is easy to use. Created by the CB team means that it is coded correctly! Also, there is plenty of help to be found in the forums. Trust me save yourself some time - use CBsubs.
Adam Parker (ThePiston)
The CBSubs solution has given me the tools to implement many subscription and eCommerce websites for my clients. Features that would otherwise take me months to implement are easily configured using CBSubs. The solution lets me quickly develop sites I could not develop easily before. Bottom line, my clients are very happy with end product.
Jacob Hodara, www.jh-design.com
If your are serious with your e-commerce website and you are looking for a product that is (1) stable and reliable, (2) flexible and customizable, (3) maintained, supported and easy to use and extend, then Community Builder and the new subscription system is the best choice.

Barrie North is the CEO of Simplweb, and the author of the #1 selling book on Joomla
Our service offering needed a powerful "subscription" and "membership" type function. We looked at all the available GPL and Commercial products on the market that semi-fit our needs...NOTHING we found met that need except CB Subs. CB Subs is one of the best extensions for Community Builder AND Joomla I have seen...stable, easy to use and install. It does have a small learning curve, but this is in part due to the flexible nature of the product...infinite combinations of products, services and subscription ..strongly recommend CBSubs.. Don't mess around with the other extensions, do it professionally and right - get CB Subs.

* CBSubs is a CB plugin with a GPL license, to be installed through the CB plugins installer and is not a Joomla extension (e.g. Joomla component). CBSubs runs and relies only on CB, and thus works also on all other CMS's supported by CB, like Mambo and on some Mambo-forks.
Advanced and Professional members with a CBSubs GPL membership, as well as Developer members, can now use in Downloads menu our CB Packager to build a custom installable single package with CB and a choice of CB plugins, including CBSubs GPL 3.0 and a choice of CBSubs integration and gateway plugins.
