Oh, I'm well aware how "angry" WHMCS users can be, trust me. Even if things do work, they whine and piss and moan about stupid ****, like not passing fraud checks.

Curious what other people are using and if it may be suitable for me as well.
we use the one that allow live chat from client and it has helped us earning good reviews from clients. it helps them to get help faster on their queries.

The recent fiasco of whmcsglobalservices made me scared to death regarding 3rd party addons.

This made us create our own in-house modules by hiring a trusted developer time to time.

Right now, we use FraudRecord as the only 3rd party add-on in WHMCS.

Having 3rd party addons is like playing "Russian roulette", being just a matter of time until it fails, but what I am concerning is about security of this. I had bad experience with this so I learned the lesson in the hard way. I advice to use 3rd party addons strictly if is very important and try to develop your own things like I did in my case, specially when you work with sensitive information from your customers.

Also if you are going to use 3rd party addons then you need to trust the developer.

1) How long have they being trading.
2) Are addons their main business.
3) How many addons have they developed.
4) Have they any reviews on specific forums (ie. WHMCS addons- have they any reviews on the WHMCS forum)

Nonsense. A proper provider will keep their addons up to date. Just avoid the poor ones, such as ModulesGarden and you'll be fine.

Again, if you use a proper provider, this won't happen. Security is obviously important, but not using mods because 'security' is pretty ridiculous

There are less than a handful of quality WHMCS module developers out there, people that know what they're doing, have been around for ages and keep their stuff up to date. These developers don't release modules for 'cheap', they release modules because they work, and they release them at realistic prices.

I agree and then you have those that have been around for years and once did great modules like Lee Mason (No Half Pixel/WHMCS module shop) who has some great modules which worked great but then a few years ago he just went to ground yes still selling modules that most wont work with updated WHMCS and he never answers tickets
