The best product and support. Highly recommended.

The store works fine BUT doesn’t use EE channel entries for products or EE categories which is a dealbreaker for us! There is no way do “display X products from category Y, mark newest 3 as “new”. Seriously? Entry form can’t be changed! Using native EE channels/entries would have been much better.

I had the absolute pleasure of using BrilliantRetail for a client of mine who wanted to make an e-commerce store. It was my first time working with ExpressionEngine and BR made the e-commerce side of things a cinch. I had a small issue upgrading to the latest release and the devs were eager to help!

Best eCommerce solution for EE, period!

Extremely fast to develop, user friendly, and easy to modify the look to suite your needs. Not to mention the support is second to none.

If you need to implement an eCommerce solution for your next project, look no further.

When you are in the process of establishing an eCommerce presence, it is important that you pinpoint the right tools to suit the needs and eCommerce SEO objectives of your store. BR is the RIGHT tool without a doubt! When others are slow and limited you find yourself in the haven of right tool!

I’ve been using BR since it was in beta and it’s come a very long way since then. The support is top notch, often getting direct replies in less than an hour or two.
I currently use BR on two sites, one with over a 1000 products, and I’ve been able to get it to do almost whatever I want. I love BR.

Great ecommerce addon that I’ve been using since the first release and have zero complaints. The “single page checkout” template is excellent. Response time for support has always been very quick.

I have been working with BrilliantRetail since the initial Alpha/Beta stages of the platform and have grown with it through all of the various version releases. I can honestly say that I’ve ever faced a requirement that I could not fulfill with BR and gladly use it as my “go-to” platform of choice.

BR is a feature-rich product I value despite it being prone to fight back and give you a few bruises.

Abysmal support (takes weeks for even a reply to a support ticket), sloppy coding (spent 10+ hours fixing critical code) and unprofessional (one excuse for not responding to tickets was ‘we were having our office painted’). I’m embarrassed for them, and for me (I have a very unhappy client).

THE most important thing that people underestimate when buying professional products is support. You may not need it but when you do you need issues solved quickly and thats exactly what you get with Brilliant Retail. It’s also a great e-commerce system with regular updates and has been a joy to use

We chose BR as the e-commerce solution for one of our most exciting projects. Easy to install & quick to learn! Gauging the flexibility with design, intuitive UI , and outstanding support (thanks David!) we will use (and we recommend) BR as the e-commerce solution for EE from here on out!

After looking at the options we chose BrilliantRetail for a project and couldn’t be happier. The client loves the intuitive dashboard and as a developer it doesn’t get much better. Well documented, extensible and gets regular updates. If you want to do e-commerce in EE look no further.

Good in concept, but extremely limited and very buggy.  After trying Exp:resso’s Store, have not looked back!

Having just wrapped up our first e-commerce project in quite some time, Brilliant Retail was a great choice. The software is robust and reliable and the support has been fantastic. I’m looking forward to using it on two additional upcoming projects. Great job, guys!

Amazing module - not sure what we would have done without it. We were able to deploy a robust ecommerce site with tons of flexibility in design and user experience. Best support I’ve had from any third-party developer. I know we’ll be using this on future projects.

Finally, an e-commerce solution for EE that I can understand, design with, and implement in any way that I want. There is a short learning curve and the CP for leaves a bit to be desired but overall, it works well and the support is great. I look forward to the future releases.

I was nervous about integrating a cart anywhere, but finding BrilliantRetail made everything a lot easier. The customer service is exceptional, and I chose BrilliantRetail to take care of my initial (simple) needs as well as grow with me as my store grows.

This plugin is a great addition to your site. 

Admittedly the plugin a few bugs in the earlier version which i downloaded.  However that was dealt with quickly by the team.  The newer release has already fixed those errors so feel confident in moving forward with BR.

Special thanks to David.

Brilliant retail worked for me in getting two sites up quickly and efficiently. The payment gateways set up flawlessly and the support has been quick. The new shipping matrix is very flexible! I think the community will only help this plugin grow… Easy to implement, easy to teach clients!

This addon has potential to be really good. The product is in the beginning stages and has a few bugs but are being worked out quickly. Customer support is second to none. If you want ecommerce for expressionengine this is the fast forward button.

This was my first experience integrating expressionengine 2 and e-commerce and I can say that I don’t think it could have been easier. Integrating it into my site and with shipping and payment gateways was simple and intuitive. The default templates that are included are a big help getting started!

Been doing A LOT of testing with BR. I really wanted to put it to the test against CT, which I’ve extensively used. Are there bugs? Yes, but most are minor and support is excellent. I think in time, this is going to be an amazing e-commerce tool. For now, it’s a good tool, and I’d recommend it.

BrilliantRetail has been a breeze to put into action with our development process. Everything in the shopping cart has been well thought out and impeccably implemented. BR has always been quick to reply to all of my questions and concerns. Also I have found the support forums to be a great resource.

Absolutely love Brilliant Retail! We’re currently using it with three of our e-Commerce clients, two of them we converted our old custom cart to BR. We ran across two bugs which their support squashed in a matter of 30 minutes. Was so happy to this release as waiting for CT for EE2 was a nightmare.

At this point there are still too many bugs to use this as a live shopping cart. There are numerous, small, yet obvious, issues that need to be addressed (like shipping). On the plus side, the cart has amazing potential and will likely be a great cart one day.

The software works well, and has gained more features per release. Its as robust and as flexible as it needs to be it does everything I want it to. We recommend this as a proper e-commerce option for any EE site and the guys at BR have been amazing with support and suggestions. two thumbs up!
