So far no complaints. Support and community has been extremely helpful in getting me setup and running. No trouble running the add-on at all with a fresh install of XF 2.7. Thanks guys!
The add-on could've been cool, but there are some major points which forced me to rate this add-on just with 2 stars.

Being a paid add-on I would have expected adequate support from the developer(s) which instead delayed replied to my questions (if lucky) or didn't reply at all and at least some documentation which this add-on totally lacks for, except for a few outdated and unrelated guides you might find here and there about a similar script for another forum platform. This add-on should be marked as (beta) as it's definitely not suitable for a live site. Also, after 5 months, I'm still unable to download any invoices from their site, which, in the meantime, even migrated to another platform and was quite a mess at first, with many settings missing such as the possibility to remove an item added to the cart (which was 2 weeks later fixed).

If developers would have showed higher interest into making this add-on worth the money you paid for, I'm sure this could have potentially been the #1 add-on sold on Xenforo, but I feel there's no interest at all into this project, which seem more like a bad upgrade from its (probably cool) previous version which ran on xenforo 1 I didn't have the luck to try which turned into a nightmare for developers since it was ported to xenforo 2.

Last but not least, I didn't like the fact that we're forced to advertise the authors behind this add-on since they hard-coded the urls which always have the word "dbtech" inside (example.com/dbtech-credits/) , so everyone who will use any parts of this scripts on any site, will have their brand name "dbtech" shown in the link they're visiting.

Priority support is always handled @ our website. It's not always possible to keep up to date with threads here @ XF.com, especially during busy periods. I do apologise for the delay you experienced.

You are correct that there was a period of time prior to our migration where invoices were unavailable due to a bug in the old invoicing system. However, ever since our migration, you can download invoices from our site by going to your account here: https://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/store/account then click "Download invoice" in the Manage drop-down. If you are experiencing difficulty downloading invoices since our migration, it would probably be better if you notified us of this @ our site rather than post your complaint inside a review for one of our products, as this is 100% unrelated to DragonByte Credits.
Also, it was always possible to remove an item added to the cart. You would previously go to the "Checkout" page, then tick the box next to the item, then delete the item. I don't know where you got the idea from that it was not possible to remove items added to the cart, but this is simply false and has been false since day 1. Like the invoice complaint, this is also 100% unrelated to DragonByte Credits.

Lastly, you are completely incorrect in saying that the URLs are hard-coded. Are you familiar with the "route filters" system in XenForo 2? If not, I would recommend you read up on it, instead of complaining to addon developers who use a vendor prefix on their default URLs in order to avoid potential conflicts.
it does not have the possibility to manage credits in uploading and downloading resources. On their site there isn't possibility to open a ticket. Ticket button is not visible.

This is not true. You have opened multiple support tickets @ our site: https://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/threads/i-cant-deactivate-or-set-any-event-triggers.22389/ and this ticket opened by one of your staff members: https://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/threads/download-upload.22390/

Furthermore, the description of this product states that the Resource Manager integration is not currently present in the XF2 version.

Do you think it's fair to leave a three-star review when you did not read the product description? Do you think it's fair to spread false information regarding our website?
