Introduction

Extension Specific, VirtueMart extensions

VM Affiliate is a complete and powerful affiliate tracking software, developed specifically for the Joomla! ™ CMS and its popular e-commerce component, VirtueMart.

  • Get this

VM Affiliate provides the tools and technology required to create, manage and track an affiliate program, from scratch, with no hassle, provided that e-commerce activities are powered by VirtueMart.

Basically, installation and configuration take less than 5 minutes. At the end of this simple process, your affiliate program has been deployed. Affiliates can then already bump into your affiliate program’s offerings, sign up for it, and start advertising your products.

VM Affiliate integrates seamlessly with VirtueMart, acknowledges and uses its settings, blends within its administration as well as your website’s layout, tracks referred visits and orders, automates many tasks, and, best of all, it achieves all this without interfering in any way with VirtueMart processes or files.

It provides the administrator with a fully-fledged administration section to manage the affiliate program, and the users with an affiliate panel, where they can become affiliates, manage their accounts, have access to advertising material and personalized information.

Unlike other standard, stand-alone affiliate tracking software, VM Affiliate takes full advantage of its integration with the shopping cart, namely VirtueMart. This integration provides VM Affiliate with precious knowledge that enables it to grab the wheel and automatically operate and maintain the affiliate program, relieving you of this effort.

VM Affiliate comes in 19 languages: English, French, German, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Hungarian, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Greek, Romanian, Persian, Malaysian, Hebrew, Croatian and Serbian.

VM Affiliate is currently compatible with Joomla! 1.5, 1.7, 2.5 and VirtueMart 1.1 & 2.0.


I love this extension for an e-commerce store. It can be used on other types of sites as well to drive traffic, but I use it for e-commerce. It is easy to use and very, very powerful.



I used it on one site, and I had a huge blogger in the category compliment the affiliate interface saying that VM Affiliate was the nicest and most powerful affiliate dashboard they had ever used. This is a site that sees more than 10,000 uniques a month, and that affiliate marketer had used ALL of the big affiliate marketing dashboards. She said ours was the nicest!



I am about to use it again for another client who has a ton of traffic and sales. But there can always be improvement in sales and this is a great way to do it!



I found VM Affiliate easy to use on the back-end. And even when I got a little confused I found the support swift and amazingly helpful.



One great feature which I love, love, love is the auto-generation of ads based on products from VM. This is a great time-saver. You can still design regular art banners, but with the automatically generated text ads, you get a bunch of ready to roll ads right out of the gate! That saves a bunch of time for sure. I am not sure that any other affiliate program comes close to this ease of use.



Another thing I found this extension helpful for was to provide additional tracking for ads in the wild that are not specifically tied to an affiliate. Say one is doing banner swaps or banner ads elsewhere. One may use the codes form VM Affiliate to provide excellent tracking of the value of the placement. One can easily see if a banner is not performing. This is above and beyond any analytics one might have or reports from vendors. One may not trust the reports from other people, but VM Affiliate will be straight forward with the performance.



All in all, this is an excellent extension with professionals to back it up. I know that when my clients need the most robust affiliate system, I look nowhere else and just get the best: VM Affiliate.


Excellent Support!

The extension looks good in the backend and integrates smoothly with Virtuemart. There were no technical difficulties. When I ran into problems, Globacide went out of their way to make the extension work on my site, custom modifying the extension quite extensively to make me a satisfied customer. I can honestly recommend this product and service. Thank you very much!


I didn't have rated many components in JED but for this excellent piece of work I really found time to rate it as a great product, really helpful for virtuemart and support is just great exist there even Sundays.


I had an installation problem and the technician answered in just 5 minutes, excellent communication, super helpful and quick. The technician personally installed and configured the component!

The reliable value for money is excellent

Highly recommended


If I could give a higher rating, I would.



Quite simply, I'm a skeptic, not naturally...actually an optimist by birth...but a skeptic of the 'tech/programmer' world from a, until now, never ending barrage of 'never-meeting expectations' tech-folk.



I read the reviews of VM Affiliate, here and elsewhere. Was encouraged by the fact the owner stepped up and answered/defended himself in validated/documented records in the few instances of negatives. Seemed credible and I 'rolled the dice' and bought VM Affiliate!



Wow folks! I WISH that every other program support/owner etc in the tech world was as supportive and selflessly helpful as VM Affiliate. I have spent TONS of money on programs and 'help' that consistently fail me. Believe me when I say: "I can't thank VM Affiliate enough for their level of support and no attempts to nickel-and-dime me, ever!" One price=record-setting awesome support.



Short details: MY tech and server folks=painful to deal with...VM Affiliate, stepped up and offered a solution and took the time to do it themselves when it looked like MY people weren't capable of a quickie solution!



THAT is support!


I registered to JED just to review this extension.

The extension is great and just installs out of the box without changing files or manual hacks. The plugin does all the work.

The layout is so good and clean, merges with all kinds of templates without changes.

Even if you need to change something, the code is so well written and commented, you'll find everything you need without much studying.

I needed to implement some extra features and the support not only replied within minutes but also they took the trouble to make some changes for me. The extension is very good but the costumer support is out of this world.


ITS JUST PLAIN CRAP.


Posted on 19 January 2012

Support is absolute rubbish....Never have i paid for a component or module at such a price and got NIL support with it.



Messaged the owners in private email and on their support forum till this day they haven't fixed the problem, no responses.



The problem is if a user signs up, it should go automatically for approval, and the users can start using his/her affiliate ID, however as this Extension is, the user can sign up but when they login using thier details it kicks back an Error: USERNAME AND PASSWORD NOT RECOGNISED NOT A REGISTERED MEMBER.



Then when you login to Admin, there is no sign of the person signing up...



If you do some research into this component you'll find once they have your $$$ you get abso0lutely CRAPPY support or any support if that...



Cant even comment about the effectiveness of this program as the problem with the VM Affiliate i cant have people sign up to it full stop..



I suggest seeking other programs/components/modules to do the work...otherwise you'll be throwing your money away with this one..!!!!!

Owner's reply: Hello,

With all due respect, we did provide you proper support, in a timely manner. Your issue was not our software's fault, but instead caused by a JR Passphrase plugin's bug. We have provided you with a proper fix for it, although it was not our extension.

Nevertheless, throughout the whole process you were very rude and would not, literally, accept our solutions. Instead you posted this rude review (which seems to be the type of reviews you usually post), stopped communicating with us, blocked our IP from your website (after your solution was fixed and we could verify everything was working properly), started a PayPal dispute, and instructed us not to call you anymore.

Again, with all due respect, we do our best to provide excellent support service to our customers, yet you were, at all times, rude and unreasonable.

As you can see, proper support was given here:

Before I bought VMA,actually I have spent to other affiliate system,I have to make a new try to purchase VMA because this system can bring me more function which I really want.it can show a single refer link,also can display each "product" with an affiliate link automatically,smooth and looking professional.



I have met some bugs after install it,although it take about 1 month to fix my problem,but I still say they offer a great products and excellent service.thank you admin,I high recommend here every VM users you should use this affiliate system !


Great Customer Service

Really nice addition to the VM system. I needed a quick install and configuration for a client who had an immediate affiliate opportunity. Product loaded easily and was setup in under 10 minutes.

Support was good and I was able communicate directly with the owner same day.


From my experience so far, this is an excellent extension, which installs without any problems, and is very easy to configure and use.



The integration with Virtuemart is fantastic, it plugs right into the VM administration and automatically creates product-level affiliate links with images in styled boxes, ready to use. Add your own ad banners and text ads and you're ready to go.



The front end for users has a nice, modern and clean layout by default, but may also be restyled by standard CSS means. Language files follow Joomla standards, a variety of language packs are readily available, and the german translation was professional.



One thing that really made my day is that affiliate users will not automatically become Joomla users (which would have been a problem for me, as I do not want the affiliate partners to gain access to pages and menu modules reserved for clients!) This part is very well designed: Visitors may sign up as affiliates, and should they ever become standard Joomla users, they are able to synchronise (merge) their affiliate account with the Joomla user account. Perfect!



Of particular note (as it still is not common for commercial extensions): This one comes with an illustrated PDF user manual, which is really helpful for beginners. I had the affiliate pages readily configured, up and running in 20 minutes.



Highly recommended and well worth the money!
