e-Commerce, Paid Downloads

More than a paid download manager. This component will help sell access to your Joomla content articles, K2 items, Phocadownload files, jDownload items and many more.
You can also sell rights to post on your Kunena Forum.
With Pay per Download component you can control access to resources on your site based on users’ membership. You can have different types of memberships, with different levels, prices and expiration dates. Memberships are paid using Paypal IPN.
You can find plugins to integrate with PhocaDownload, JDownloads and Joomla Content Articles.
Tested on PHP 5.2.17, mySQL 5.1.58-community-log. Make sure you have least these requirements.

Other features:
-Set limit to download times.
-You can assign a price to an item and users can pay for it without registering.
-You can sell license that last for ever or can set an expiration time.
-You can activate the "discount" option. If you do users who have a license and then buy a license with a higher level will get a discount on the price.
-You can create affiliates programs to promote your products on other sites sharing a percent of the profit.

Fully Potential

If it can integrate Paymentwall (Joomla: Home>e-Commerce>Payment Gateway>Paymentwall) and etc, it may be pretty good.
Ease of use
The frontend function can be improved as the so strong backend.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your review.
For a long time i was trying to find a solution to offer paid content on my website and there were only two solutions worth trying: CBSubs and - PayPerDownload.

Since CBSubs by Joomlapolis is a VERY expensive extension i was giving a try to PPD first and i have to say i was happy i did.

Installing easyly, well setting up needed a bit of understanding how the extension exactly workes ... but very friendly and quick support was on the way by Ratmil.

Had only some little pitfalls with SEFed Categories on J1.5.

But Ratmil is doing a great job in supporting and throwing new versions every once in a months.

Great extension, very fair priced, great support - highly recommeded !!!

One of the best !

Ratmils Pay Per Download is one of the best components for Joomla!

At the beginning it may appear not so complex but it works really well and is great for selling not only downloads but in general access to Joomla content and resources.

It easy to setup and understand.

The price is absolutely fair and support very good and fast!!!

(Of course you have to pay a little extra, but if you are serious with this you are about to make some money with it anyway, right?)

Thanks for this nice component!

PS: Also checkout other plugins and components like Encrypt for secure login.

Does what it says

I purchased this extension so I could add paid downloads to Phoca. I managed to follow along with the documentation on Ratmil's site and setup was rather fast and easy. I would give this 5 stars however there is a small issue with the return pages SEF that has me bothered. Beyond that the extension seems to be pretty sound.
Owner's reply: I will add SEF for next release.
I has everything i was looking for. it was also pretty much one of a kind. really great options. i love this plugin.
I suggest to anyone who want a cheap, stable, nice looking and simple solution for your downloadable good businnes and not all! you can even use it for restricting access to section, kunena post, and other things only to paying member. Forgot difficult, non intuitive extensions. PDD has all you need to sell subscriptions, files and also single purchase payments. And also has a good (and improved now) affiliate system! Get it!

"R Antispam" is the only Joomla antispam extension for Kunena forums that uses a Bayesian algorithm. This means that spam recognition is improved over time. It can be adapted to prevent spam in other extensions. It works better if integrated with Akismet. You can get an akismet key at And if you think that you have to pay for a key, better look again and you will find that you can get...
