I really love this plugin. It’s simple to use and meets my needs perfectly. The support from Niaz was even better. I am not that WP proficient so I needed some help. Niaz was great. Feel really good about my purchase. Thanks.

Obviously this is just a working trial version as just PayPal can be used for payments. I had also expected prepayment.
