- This extension has additional addons listed in an extension specific category.
- This extension requires registration to download.
It can be used for selling different products. There are also functions for selling musik files or videos. Products can shown with text, pictures and also audio or video files can be added to description. Other features: Customized PDF Bills. Modules for easy integration of payment providers and also import and export of datas are available.
The shop is special for those users who have also the target to get a good listing in Searchengines because JoomShopping was created from Webdesigner with many years of Searchengine Optimization.
The sourcecode is written in high quality for easy adding features and for stability and high security.
Supportforum you find on the website and there is also video installation manual for free of charge.
The handling of the language of the core component is a little bit special. There is no ini file in the Joomla language folder. But you find the language in a special language folder inside the components folder and you can do your language overrides by copying this folder and modifying the language strings. There is no possibility to do this in the Backend. This is not the Joomla standard. On the other hand the ini files of the modules are in the Joomla language folder and can be overwritten.
Four stars, number five is coming as soon as the component has the Joomla standard language handling. But this will for sure take a lot of work to do.
It is okay and should do the job for most starter websites. I found it reasonably easy to set up a basic shop but not without a lot of time and messing around; the documentation was not always good, present or clear, sometimes was very very brief and sometimes in German. Answers to questions appeared very fast on the forum though so 10 / 10 for support.
There are a lot of paid-for add-ons with this component and you have to pay for key features - the cost could soon rack up. For example, if you want to calculate shipping by the cost of the order rather than weight, it'll cost you.
If you just want a basic shop, this may be for you. I wouldn't like to start setting up a complex shop with this component with lots of features though as the documenation would drive me crazy and I can see the cost going up quickly.
Also, a lot of the plugins and modules which are included in other products even commercial ones are not included in the core product but one has to pay extra to buy them. By the time you buy some of the additional plugins and modules the price is far higher than some commercial extensions which have more functionality included.
Also, the forums are in German and the ones that are in English are not comprehensive. Also not good for the U.S market as it does not have the 3 most popular shipping methods used here - Fedex, USPS and UPS either free or paid.
All in all a good product for a beginner, but did not work for us.
JoomShopping definitely meets all the criteria I mentioned above. Also very easy to install, and just works. So, if you have the same criteria as me, this solution will do just fine.
It's an excellent component, working straight out of the box and is really easy to configure and run. Unlike some previous testimonials, and considering it's a free extension, I find that the the developers deliver adequate and knowledgeable support through the forums.
All-in-all it might well be the best cart solution for Joomla if cost (free), user-friendliness and sophistication are weighed together.
Currently, you have to use the joomshopping registration and not joomla's. It would be nice if the customers were able to use just one registration process for both. If you use the joomshopping registration, you can not use the captcha plugin. This leaves you valnerable to a lot of fake registrations.
and with lots of extension and addon which really extend the use of this componet just as you desire ,,,support is also good for the problem related to component via forum ,,,,,
you need to send you problem via forum ,and you will receive answer from admin or some one else,,, your problem will be solved with just a litte patient,,,finally i want to thanks to developer for this nice and free component .
Set Session Lifetime
I've also received valuable help on their forum, especially today as I wanted to make a small modification to the payment process, and I got the solution within a few hours.
Thanks for your feedback.
Thanks . as you see .. there are beginners with some skills like you and others like you see in a few other commentars ..
The issue is that we can not take care about all their server settings and some other issuse which are not in our hands ...
So we are haopy that there are a lot of uses out there which like to use our shop to sell their products
1. Add to wishlist
2. Add to compare
3. Niche Search & Filter
4. All Standard Modules for Shopping Cart System
5. Separation of buy, add to cart, details, and add to cart.
Thanks for the feedback
and a good sales for your products !
Support has always been there, forum is quiet but 'webdesigner' (the creator of the component) has always replied and helped out as much as possible. I have used VirtueMart and Simplecaddy and neither of these come anywhere near close to JoomShopping. So many customizable options and all of the PHP can be altered etc. Joins in with templates fantastically.
Lets remember - this module, designed to earn money...is FREE! Credit to the developers.
This basically means this cart cannot be use in the USA until it is updated with the ability to assign a state-level sales tax rate and apply to only sales to residents of that state.
This is sad because I liked all of the features and ease of use.
It is also hard for non-German speaking users to find help in their forum because most of the content is in German.
As we understand this is possible. You just not configured correct
The component was installed, bug free, on Joomla! 3.0.1 although the available modules were not yet compatible (as of Oct 2012) with this version of the platform, but minor fixes in code, allow them to work perfectly. The component is well coded and meeting Joomla! coding guidelines and if templating is necessary, it's just sweet to browse the markup and adapt to one's needs, but "out of the box" it just renders beautifully.
In summary, if someone is looking for a shopping component that is hassle free and doesn't make you waste time to configure it, this is my suggestion - really give JoomShopping a try and I believe you'll be as positively surprised as I was.
Congrats to the JoomShopping dev team!
