Buy me a Beer Edition - Download (€3.00)

Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3

Joomla 1.5 (no longer available)

There is no difference between the Buy me a Beer and the FREE version - both can be used to accept payments online or donations with Paypal. The Beer version is a small contribution to the development (hey you can afford the price of a beer right? Especially if this module has helped you out). After all, if you had to integrate with an online payment gateway, your cost would be much higher ;)

If you like it, please take a moment to write a small review on the Joomla Extensions site, vote for us, or link to us! The price is obviously dirt cheap to make it affordable to all, while at the same time helping to support further development of this other modules.
