Well after purchasing mycred userpro and the mycred lottery plugins to name but a few purchased I simply was blown away by the quality and customer service. Integration was excellent. I purchased other plugins at the same time and after my purchases I had extra tokens issued for the purchases which meant in fact I had saved enough for and extra plugin for FREE. That was a nice touch offering tokens for paying custom because It allows me to effectivly buy 2 get one free in a way.
They plugin itself has been a life saver for my MX theme. Thank you ever so much for a wonderfully coded plugin yet again.
I would recommend all plugins and the SMS is next on my list! Thanks and would recommend it’s beautifully done! 5 stars accross the board for this and the other two plugins!
