Product Checkout Lock for VirtueMart Plugin

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
With a standard Virtuemart 2.0 install it is quite possible for a single item (i.e. an item with a stock level of 1) to be ordered multiple times by different customers because no stock level is adjusted until the item is fully checked out.

Just adding to your cart doesn't prevent other customers from also adding it to their cart and successfully checking out - not good if you are running a shop that sells one off items!

Our plugin and template adjustments solve this problem fully - as soon as an item with a stock level of 1 is added to a cart it is 'locked' i.e. other visitors are prevented from adding it to their cart until the item is 'released' by manually being removed from the cart or the cart session of the 'buyer' running out and our plugin then releasing it.

If the item is successfully checked out then the stock falls to 0 so it then can not be ordered.
Ideal for VM sites for art & handicraft works where only 1 item exists.

If your shop is running on Joomla 2.5 and VirtueMart and you are selling products that are stocked in one piece (handcraft, for example), than this is a must have extension. No more overselled products! Works really fine and is easy to use. Also the support by the developer is great.
Highly recommended!
