Virtuemart Import, Virtuemart Administration

Finaly a migrator especially designed for Virtuemart.

  • Get this

If you are still running Joomla 1.5 and Virtuemart 1.1.x your website is getting quite old. Old enough that neither Joomla not Virtuemart development teams are supporting this versions anymore.

Some other third party extension follow the same roadmap and Daycounts.com is not an exception as we already stopped any further developments on those platforms.

This migrator, is a giant leap towards Joomla 2.5 or Joomla 3 and Virtuemart 2.x or 3.x !
Every Joomla core and Virtuemart content from your shop will be copied over. Here is how it works.

Install blank Joomla 2.5 and Virtuemart 2 or J3/VM3 on the same server as your existing website
Install VM Migrator component and configure database access and file paths
Select the contents you want to migrate and hit the "Migrate now button"
Our system will copy and transform all the data to have an almost fully functional brand new website out of the box (some additional settings were not available in previous version of Virtuemart, you'll then have to configure them manually)
There is more! All the data will be transfered using the same ids. What does that mean? Well that means data integrity is preserved during migration.

Multilingual

If available, your Joomfish translations will be imported too !

Robust

Our sytem was run successfully on several shops with up to 20.000 products

No rush

Although this component will be a great help, your 'old' site is still running and customers continue to register, orders are created and you don't want to turn it down before the new website is ready.
You may have other components, modules, plugins and template that you want to migrate and we understand that can take some time.
No problem, hit the migrate button again and all new data will be imported so your data keep up to date.

Extensible

Yes! The Virtuemart 2 Migrator is extensible and additional plugins are available to migrate data from other components such as AWO Coupon, iStraxx downloads, Alph User Points and more to come.

What is migrated?

Everything! Check by yourself:

  • Remote migration
  • Incremental migration
  • Virtuemart Configuration
  • Same ids
  • Tax rates
  • Payment methods

Functionality

All that I hoped for! Troublefree! Saves me weeks to pump over thousands of products and images. It was all done in about 20 minutes.

Ease of use

Extremely easy to understand! Before doing the actual migration, you are informed on how stuff is taking place and where to use caution.

Support

Didn't need any, although my setup is not standard by far!

Documentation

Most important documentation pops up whilst working with the component. What more could you want?!

Value for money

10 out of 10. It saves me about a lot of work. Although it is not very cheap (in all fairness) and I was sceptical, it's really worth it.

I used this to: Joomla 2.5 + VM2 - to - Joomla 3 + VM3

Value for money

Well worth its money

I used this to: I used it to migrate old 1.5 websites that had virtuemart and worked perfectly. As long as you have all the components you used to have in your old site installed before the migration everything works perfect. Has some minor issues with multiple languages and menus

Excellent VM Migration Tool


Posted on 31 December 2014
Functionality

All necessary fields are covered and easy to use.

Support is excellent, great knowledge base, all issue we came across where address and resolved. Jeremy, your support is absolutely superb!

Value for money

Worth every cent, saved us a lot of time moving our Virtuemart 1 data to Virtuemart 3

I used this to: One of our greatest concerns in upgrading our site from Virtuemart 1 to Virtuemart 3 was the Virtuemart 1 data i.e.: Users, Orders, Products, Product Images, Categories, etc. This tool allowed us to proceed with the upgrade. Highly recommend this tool, it gets the job done

Simply the best (no kidding!)

Functionality

Jeremy puts out some of the best addons for J/VM is this VM Migrator is a perfect example.

Ease of use

Install it on target site, click some buttons and you're done. Can it get any easier?

Support

Haven't needed support, but in the past getting any help hasn't been an issue.

Documentation

To be honest, I haven't searched really hard for documentation. It's all included during installation as well as references on the comp page

Value for money

Jeremy undervalued this one; I'd easily pay at least 3x for this!

I used this to: Used on a fresh installation with several commercial addons. I had one very minor issue that was most likely a result of my own installation and changes made to the original DB. I would HIGHLY recommend the VM Migrator if you haven't already.

Wow on a sunday afternoon I decided to start the migration from joomla 1.5 with virtuemart 2 to 3 and virtuemart 2.9 - installed but had a small problem with transfer of product images - emailed support and within 10 min on a sunday evening I get support reply - and constant feedback - end result, couple hours later the images are transfer and I am a happy customer thank you


Migrator did exactly as advertised. A couple of things didn't transfer. Jeremy was able to address the issue promptly.

Highly recommend this product!


I had made several failed attempts to migrate from vm 1.1.9 in the last few years using the in built migration tool. It never worked and it never told you why it failed.

Recently I knew I HAD to upgrade and had resigned myself to the fact that I would have to write my own migration scripts.

Then I came across this tool and thought, not expecting much, that I'd give it a go.

Miraculous. It worked brilliantly. My VM 2.6 site was up and running in about half an hour and I could later go back and just import new entries from the live 1.1.9 site once the 2.6 site was ready to go live.

Highly configurable. All errors and warnings displayed and logged.

If you need to migrate from 1.1.9 save yourself a lot of time and heartache and just buy it.


Brilliant - Buy It


Posted on 29 January 2014

This extension saves hours, if not days or weeks of time. Simple to configure, easy to operate and works brilliantly.



A real bonus that the existing J!1.5.x content is also ported across to the new site. A little bit of re-jigging is required for some menu items and (if you're also changing the entire template, as I was) re-assigning module positions.



I migrated a couple of thousand products, plus several dozen web pages, all the images, dozens of custom module positions - all in a few minutes - Genius!



I encountered a small glitch following installation and migration, which if I'd read more and paid more attention, I should have solved myself - Jeremy fixed the issue very quickly with a clear description of which settings needed to be altered - Excellent, quick support.



Jeremy is a legend - this is an excellent extension and anyone wanting to migrate a VM (or even just a J!) website should just buy it - It will save you both time and money - lots of it.


Worth every penny.

Javascript Async and Defer

Javascript Async and Defer

If async is not present and defer is present: The script is executed when the page has finished parsingIf async is present: The script is executed asynchronously with the rest of the page (the script will be executed while the page continues the parsing) Improve your page loading time by allowing javascript loading asynchronously You will see the difference with YSlow and Google Page speed ranking but your visitors will thank you for providing a speedy website. When a browser loads a webpage, it will start by loading external Javascript and CSS ressources before loading the html and render it's content. If neither async or defer is present: The script is fetched and executed immediately, before the browser continues parsing the page This will improve your global page loading time However, this is not applicable to all scripts as you want to make sure the script is loaded while some other script or inline script will call it. Usually, if your jQuery inline scripts are called within a jQuery(document).ready() declaration, you can safely load the javascript file asynchronously.

This VirtueMart extension let's you use Shopper Groups* in a brand new fashion. You can dynamically assign your customer to new Shopper Groups based on their purchases. On the administrator site, you can use multiple conditions to create new business rules for your customers. For example, you can determine that a customer who made a 200$ purchase should be assigned to the VIP Shopper Group that gives him a 10% discount on all future purchases. If that same shopper buys for less than 100$ in the following months you can downgrade them to the "default" user group automatically. You can customize the messages that the user will see in the purchase process. Finally, a tool that let's you use Shopper Groups to help you sell more products to your customer by giving them instant gratification to shop at your store. Shopper Groups is VirtueMart's way to segment your shoppers and let you assign specific products, prices, payment options and shipping rules based on your business needs.
