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

Functionality
There is a broad range of functions and settings. It is highly scalable and it can be used for many purposes.
Ease of use
It has its own logic after you understand there are a lot of opportunities. It is based on J! logic which is quite a great job!
Support
VM forum can help you out many times. Community members created many content to find an answer for most cases.
Documentation
There is a space for improvement. It could be a more popular webshop script if there is a betterquality documentation.
I used this to: Creating and maintaining webshops. Many Virtuemart extensions, templates, plugins etc. are available so you can definitely customize it for your own needs. With some custom Virtuemart development we put some unique business processes inside of J! and VM.

After the upgrade I find it difficult to update a customer's order. You'll have to copy and paste the additional items to the order.

I like the old version where order edits are calculated in the new subtotal. Should show subtotal, discounts, new total. Customer confused
Support
Harder and harder to find support and ethical reliable Virtuemart webmasters
Documentation
Lengthy and it should be more in laymen terms rather that only for devs.
