VirtueMart ist eine hochgradig konfigurierbare und anpassbare mehrsprachige Warenkorb-Lösung für Joomla 2.5 und 3 mit einer großen Anzahl von zusätzlichen Erweiterungen.

Functionality

I tried everything and everytime i return to VM. It's by far the most professional component if you're building an eshop with Joomla.

Ease of use

It's not that easy nor that dificult. All good things take some time :)

Support

There is big community behind it and everytime e wanted help i got it.

I used this to: All of my online shops in Joomla.

Functionality

Virtuemart has all I always need making online shops for my customers and for my self. By default it provides all necessary features.

Ease of use

It may look a little complicated for the first look however later you appreciate all its features and all will become clear and easy.

Support

Guys do the best. Thanks a lot for all your help and sorry to be a pain ;)

Documentation

GOOD!

I used this to: I'm using VirtueMart for all my customers plus for two mine own shops.

Functionality

VM can do anything but it takes ages of tweeking before you have it perfectly right. Frontend design is very poor. Little marketing clue.

Ease of use

It is not easy to use. VM has a steep learning curve and is not intuitive in its setup. Made by talented technical wizkids, not designers.

Documentation

Documentation is extensive but somewhat outdated. English translations are sometimes a bit 'weird'.

I used this to: For my webshop to sell my Joomla! extensions.

Good program!

Not made for selling

Functionality

It is shoping cart. That is all. Checkout is not real one page (they claim it on description) and not in steps. Not real tool for selling.

Ease of use

Simple, but on some cases (product variants, discounts) not user friendly.

Support

Forum support is ok because of active cummunity.

Documentation
I used this to: I use VM for some 10 e-shops since version 1. They continue with same mistakes and sometimes new version is even worse than previous. I think that developers dont have much know how in ecommerce, UX and marketing solutions.

good

Functionality

Магазин действительно функциональный. Доработана работа с дочернеми товарами и корзина

Ease of use

Магазин действительно фугкциональный. Веду разработку на нем уже более трех лет, за это время ядро сильно доработали и сделали удобным.

Support

Поддержка конечно слабая. Но надо отдать должное явные косяки с неохотой закрывают.

Documentation

Документация есть. Довольно много форумных веток.
