For a small website selling e-documents I have been looking for a php-script that could handle international sales and downloads through PayPal. Being new to running a website I was pleasantly surprised how fast I could autodidactally learn html, and I was hoping the same with php. Thus I had been on a quest to find php info and tricks and also to get my hands on a free php script that after slight alteration would handle my sales and downloads. My advice to those who are in the same situation and don't study php out of interest: 'forget it'. A professional script like LinkLok PayPal is way beyond the little free scripts that are offered on the net.
I cannot judge about the technical content of course, but I can share my personal experiences, and these have been overall excellent. After giving up mastering much of php within a couple of weeks I searched for an affordable IPN handler (I think that's how these scripts are called), and I have seen many websites of many sellers. Several things I liked about Vibralogix's site. The first was the professional and very informative design of the site. I encountered several sites that left a screamy and desperate-to-sell impression. Vibralogix did not give me such impressions. It gives the information you seek in a modest way with just enough color and make-up to be pleasant to the eye. They offer extensive manuals of their products beforehand, so you can inform yourself into much detail about what to expect. Pre-sale questions were handled kind and patiently (and also here I had different experiences with especially one other seller). The price of LinkLok PayPal ($29.95) is below what competators offer (which was often between $40 and $50 during my search). So all in all the choice was not too difficult.
Due to the excellent manual was the installation of LinkLok PayPal almost effordless.The only installation problem I encountered was due to uncafeful reading and missing one step.
The functionality is simply good; it does what it should do. At the moment I use the script for the so called 'buy now' PayPal buttons. After my customers have payed they are led to a download page and a download email is sent to them. I don't use advanced options, so I cannot judge about that.
These download pages and emails can be adjusted to your own liking. Just design your own webpage or email template for it. So no Vibralogix banners on your download page; something which you sometimes should take for granted with free scripts.
With the design I encountered one problem; titles of my documents could not contain comma's. I emailed Adrian for this, and instead of dissapointing me by saying that that's just the way it is (which I had expected as an answer), he promised to have a look at it. Within two days he had altered and updated the script to make comma's in product title's possible. Such excellent service does not only keep improving the script, but it also leaves a strong enough impression to go shopping at Vibralogix again when in need of a script, or to simply share your good experiences on a review site like this.
And; 'no', there's nothing in it for me. I'm not an affiliate. I'm just a satisfied customer.
