Wouldn't recomend it!
Insane price for something that is only extension! It works alright but it's not worth to buy! Problems with installation, quite hard to make it work etc... Crazy! It's even more expensive than Jomsocial itself!
(Price for one domain name for Parainvite + Parainvite Pro = $144 !!!)
Owner's reply

Some people has the idea that just because ParaInvite integrates with JomSocial (or CB), it is considered a sub-component and should be cheaper than JomSocial itself. That is a very warped way of thinking, and cannot be further from the truth.

Imagine another viral marketing solution that functions exactly like ParaInvite, minus the JomSocial integration. It will be a lot less useful, and much more easier to develop.

Nice One!
Dear Mike,

I have installed the latest version of Parainvite and have it working on my site now.
I appreciate the time you took to help me find the conflicts that were causing issues.
Once I had the latest versions of other components installed and running, everything just started to run smoothly.
So I just thought I would write to thank you for your help and for building an excellent component.

Kind regards,

Lee McClelland

The usefulness of this is just OUT OF THIS WORLD!
I've been using ParaInvite and the Pro addon for a while now, and I have to say I can't disagree more to peter_pan's review. I have tried another invites sender and I really regretted not starting with ParaInvite.

In my opinion, what really set ParaInvite apart is the ability for users to manage and resend invites. The other invite components don't have this. You find users sending out invites and forgetting about it.

ParaInvite also automatically add the invited user as a friend of the inviter. I also couldn't find this feature on any other invite components.

What *REALLY* (and I simply cannot stress this enough) increased my site's membership a thousandfold, is the badges feature. I run a fashion blogshop, and with the badges feature, my customers can place their own badges on their own blogs, inviting their own readers to come to my site. I can even have a mini-contest to see who invited more users using badges. With badges, there is no email or facebook spam, which makes it MUCH more effective!

The invites management and badges features have literally helped my site jumpstarted in terms of membership. If you look at my google analytics account, it's like the moment I installed ParaInvite, a few days later, and BOOM!

I also have SIMBunch's SIMGallery installed on another site. That is one gallery that is designed to blow off anyone's mind!!! Maybe I'll write a simgallery review when I have the time :)
