Jomres Plugins for a Euro each

Do you want Jomres plugins for just 1 euro without needing to purchase a subscription?

You do? Great, because now you can!

The Jomres Plugin Manager has been updated with new functionality that allows you to purchase a plugin, right there in the browser.

Go to the Plugin Manager, find the plugin you want, and click Buy Now.

You'll be redirected to Stripe where you'll be charged the princely sum of one whole euro.

Once you have paid the browser will take you back to the Jomres Plugin Manager and the plugin will be automatically installed for you.

The Jomres subscription licenses are still available, for heavy users they're the best value for money but if you want just one or two plugins, then the Buy Now button is a great, cost effective solution for you.

There are both Pros and Cons to the new Buy Now button for plugins :

Pros :

  • Cheap as chips. A plugin download is just 1 euro.
  • You only pay for the plugins you need. If you only want one plugin, this is the best option.
  • Plugin installation purchases are cheaper than a download and support license.

Cons :

  • No support, either for Jomres or the plugin.
  • One off purchase. Once the plugin is installed you will not receive updates for it. If you want to update the plugin you will need to purchase it again.
  • If you uninstall the plugin you will need to purchase it again if you want to use it.
  • The purchase will only work once, so you must allow the purchase page to redirect you back to the Plugin Manager after you have completed the purchase, so !do not close the browser tab! until you've been redirected back to the Plugin Manager and seen the installation success confirmation.
  • If the installation fails for any reason you will need to purchase the plugin again. For this reason we recommend that you install at least one of the free plugins available in the Plugin Manager to ensure that your directory permissions are correctly set before attempting to purchase a plugin.
  • There are no refunds. If you purchase a plugin and it doesn't work for you, you will not receive a refund. You can, however, contact us and we will help you get it working.
  • Because the payment link will only work once, you can't install the plugin on multiple Jomres installations.

vince picDeveloped and maintained by Vince Wooll, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was released as a commercial project. Since then Jomres has become the world's oldest online booking plugin for any PHP CMS. It has been used in Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 2.5, 3 & 4 and WordPress 4, 5 & 6.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. Between 2010 and 2018 he was an integral part of the project and made many significant contributions.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and Vince have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous Valentina Template Override Package.
