uCash & uShop(uCS), is a hack, "like" Lesanes vB2 Store hack. The idea is the same, but the coding is not.
uCS, was developed with big boards in mind as well as small ones. It allows almost total control of every action and who has access to it.
That said, if there are any questions please ask at vBulletin.org or GeekyDesigns.com

Quantity Refill (Set a number of seconds between refills and quantity is automatically refilled when accessing the main store script.)
Richest x Users
Top x Most Sold Actions
Senoir Discount (based on age - if they are older than x years, they get a discount (also setable))
Loyal Member Discount (based on days registered - if they have been registered for x days, they get a discount (also setable))
Usergroup Discount (give your staff a price cut!)
Shortname (only setable while in debug mode - can be used in links (also used in some functions))
Setable Action Description
Setable Display Order
Setable Quantity and Quantity Refill (when/if quantities are refilled)
Setable Allowed Usergroups Via Checkboxes (usergroups that are not allowed do not see the action at all and cannot access it)
Setable Denied Usergroups Via Checkboxes (users that are a member of this usergroup cannot use the action)
Setable Image Location (if not location is specified, no image is shown)
Show In Store (if it is set to no, you will not see the action in the store, but can still access it via direct link)
Setable Active Status (if it isn't active, it goes *poof* from the store and is not accessable until it is set active again)
Update Display Order, Cost, Tax, Sold, Quantity Refill, and Quantity en masse.
You can duplicate the "Secondary Usergroup" (or other actions for that matter) action and define which usergroups are joinable for each action by duplicating the action file and setting the joinable groups at the top (so you can allow different usergroups to be joined for different prices)
Secondary Usergroup is an extremely powerful action - you can give people access to forums, higher PM quotas, the ability to see invisible users, access to free custom title changing, etc.
Action Specific Variables System - specific variblables set per action. You can add and edit these variables in debug mode - or you can just change the value while editing an action as if it were any other variable.
Copy an action (useful for actions like secondary usergroup and those dealing with forums if you want each forum/usergroup to have a different cost/quantity/etc)
Very few queries! (On the main page, there are 6 queries - 5 from vB3 and 1 from the store - and that's just for the richest users!)
Setting to allow BBCode in Custom Titles.
