Alternative to PayPerDownload?
« on: 23.05.2019 19:53:27 »
Unfortunately PayPerDownload is useless. It seems to be very easy to overcome without paying. I already had contact with the developer, but there was not really a solution.

That's why I wanted to ask if there is any alternative to linking JDownloads and PayPal?

Hi,
I have never used this extension really so I can not say anything to this.
I also have no knowledge of other providers so you should search another via Google or/and Joomla extension directory.

It can be that we will offer later this year a simple 'cart' extension for jDownloads (with PayPal option) together with the new coming jDownloads series 3.9.

Hi,
alternate could you maybe use a commercial extension like MijoShop. It seem to support also jDownloads.

The problem with these feature monsters is that you have an enormous effort to offer a file for 50 cents. That's not in any relation.

Especially since you can build a shop system directly. You only have to hire a few people for your private site to take care of it full time :-)

I look for a fancy small simply solution. But there seems to be either only such minimal solutions, which are then so cumbersome that it becomes then again a gigantic expenditure. Or you almost have to install SAP to offer a file for a small fee.

There seems to be nothing in between. At least nothing that one could afford as a private site operator.

Therefore the idea sounds very tempting, if there would come a small shopping cart, incl. PayPal integration.
