issue rules are not applying to each item rather per order - is this the intention? does anyone else have this issue? June 27, 2014
Overall it's decent extension but support was slow. I'm happy with this extension in general. It does most of my client wants. And I had lots of good experiences with Aheadworks before. However there was a translation bug in the extension. So it's not fully multi-lingual out of box. And it took them more than a week to fix this bug. At the beginning, I had the feeling they refused to fix the issue because it might not be a big deal for them. Until I pointed out the exact file they should look into for fixing the bug. I was disappointed in the technical support this time. They didn't provide any constructive advice other than clearing the cache. Personally, I think support is more important than the product itself. Because even if there are issues or bugs, good supports fix them. With 300 bucks, I expect more from the product and the team. October 9, 2013
Good Extension - Increased Sales and Return Customers Good extension. More flexibility would be nice. My biggest qualm is: There should be very easy way, out of the box, to show the number of points that will be earned on the product page, for purchasing that product. if I am missing something, let me know. I cant imagine this was an oversight. October 4, 2013
Expected more from AheadWorks I've been a regular, happy customer of AheadWorks for quite some time now and when I am looking for a new extension their site is the first place I visit. I bought this addon about 2 months ago and installed it right away. Installation was easy and went smoothly with no problems at all. After running it for a few days I realised there were a few issues - some more serious than others. A couple of issues with buttons dissapearing when installed with AjaxCartPro, a problem with creating orders from the backend for a customer that had points to use were minor and even though it took AheadWorks almost a month for fix they were sorted out. Almost.. The most important issue with this addon is the VAT calculation. VAT value for an order paid using points is not properly calculated thus creating invalid invoices. Say I have an order of 100 (net). The invoice generated should be 123 (including 23% vat). Now if a customer pays using 50 euros of reward points (40,65 without 23% VAT) his order should be (100-40,65)+VAT so VAT should be 13,65 and the total due 73. However, the invoice generated by AheadWork's addon is Net 100, VAT 23, POINTS 50 ending up with the correct total but wrong VAT value. After 2 months of discussing this with AheadWorks supports I gave up trying to convince them that what the addon does is plain wrong and implemented a fix in the bridge between Magento and our ERP system to recalculate VAT. Bottom line, I am very dissapointed with AheadWorks this time round. It seems that their success has a big impact on how they deal with their customers and for a 300€ piece of software (Windows costs less!!) this is unacceptable. May 11, 2013

Answer: 
Hello,
Basic support period is 90 days long and comes free of additional charges. You may also purchase 180 or 360 days of support, or extend the support period later, once it expires. While the support period is active you may turn to our team for technical support. The maximum response timeframe is 24 hours, however it usually takes much less time than that. Please also note, that our office hours are 7:00 to 15:00 GMT.
More information regarding the support period can be found in the following article of the Knowledge Base at our website:
"What is the Support Period, how does it work?"
Thank you.

Answer: 
Hello,

The current version of the module (1.6.3) comprises an option that allows to choose whether to spend points before taxes are applied, or afterwards, which solves the specified issue.

Thank you.

Please, can you specify your upgrade policy ?

Are the future upgrades free of charge ?
When will you require additional payment (e.g. upgrade for new magento version etc.)?

I am currently using web forms for my registraion, and when I integrated my newly purchased Points and Rewards Extension it seems that the registration points is not working, but when I removed the web forms on my registration page, the Points and Rewards Extensions Works and display the points in the Customer account.

Answer: 
Hello, Samuel!

From your description, it indeed seems like there's is a conflict between our Points And Rewards extension and some 3rd-party module.
We do not provide any guarantees on our extensions' compatibility with products from our developers, our modules are designed to work with the native Magento code base.
However, there is a chance that this conflict can be removed via customization. Please, contact our support service, our techs will check if we can offer any solution.
Thank you.
