If you need a Joomla virtual store, be rested that you will get one. A huge one, with lots of options and functionalities. Complete!

Ease of use

Hard to use. Bad translations (if you need them). Some options are buried deep, very deep. Too much info and bad design. But again, it works

They have a good forum.

Avoid VM if possible

Functionality

Nothing unique or appealing, just a store, not the most convenient backend at that.

Ease of use

I have no idea how people without any coding skills can set up and run a store on VM. Things don't work as they should, it's a nightmare!

General stuff only, as if people who wrote it never actually used VM for a real store

I used this to: A client's store, the only one on VM out of 10 on other platforms, and it's the worst experience!
