Paid Profile Types Integration with JS Profile Types

In last 2 weeks we took community feedback for Paid Profile Types Integration with JS Profile Types. We thanks a lot to all of you, for suggestions. We are eager to implement this feature, but we are still little bit scared from AEC (Account Expiration Control).
Why AEC :
  1. Its Free.
  2. The best product available, in terms of features and existing integration with other extensions.
  3. Well known, its in joomla community for last 3 years.

Why we are scared of AEC :

mode.</li>

    <li>It is complicated. It have a lot of options, but usability is quite
    low.</li>

    <li>Support is quite slow, for free users. I dont know about the
    premium members experience.</li>

    <span style="text-decoration: underline"><strong>When You Say Paid
    Profiles :</strong></span> You means you need

<ol style="color: #333333; font-family: Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15.800000190734863px;"><li>Payment System</li>

    <li>Subscription Manager</li>

    <li>Access Manager</li>
</ol><div>
    Writing a new extension from scratch is time consuming task. While
    using AEC is looking fine enough, we need to come up with some active
    support for AEC too, that way we can help you people around. So in
    meanwhile, we are going thorugh AEC features.

    <strong>Final Decision </strong>: We are going to integrate AEC
    with JSPT in next release. This will be the only feature for 1.4. We
    are targeting mid July for this feature.
