Finally a solution to easily migrate to Joomla 3.

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 3!
Every Joomla core and Virtuemart content from your shop will be copied over. Here is how it works.

Install blank Joomla 3 on the same server as your existing website
Install JMigrator 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

Integrity

All the data will be transferred using the same ids.** What does that mean? Well that means data integrity is preserved during migration. Most of your links having an ID in the url will remain the same

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 JMigrator is extensible and additional plugins are available to migrate data from other components such as AWO Coupon, iStraxx downloads, Alph User Points, RS Blog, K2 and more to come.

What is migrated?

Everything! Check by yourself:

  • Remote migration
  • Incremental migration
  • All your Joomla Core Data
  • Tax rates
  • Payment methods
  • Shipment methods
  • Users
  • User fields
  • Vendors
  • Categories
  • Categories settings
  • Manufacturers
  • Products

  • Related products
  • Votes
  • Reviews
  • Waiting list
  • Orders status
  • Orders
  • Order history
  • Order payment method
  • Order shipment method
  • Order downloads
  • Coupons
  • If you have the product download plugin from iStraxx, your downloadble products that you sell will be migrated too and the number of downloads remaining will be preserved

Ease of use

Very simple to use

Support

Support very reactive and efficient

Very useful tool


Posted on 01 December 2016
Functionality

Very capable but can't cope with certain things like if you delete Shopper fields in between migrations. Also found a few major bugs, fixed!

Ease of use

Easy to use when you know how - thorough reading of documentation 1st is highly recommended.

Support

Hit and miss - sometimes really great other times quite drawn out to resolve issues quickly. Time zone diff GMT / Canada did not help.

Documentation

Good but room for improvement.

Value for money

For a short simple project < 6 months then good VFM otherwise you need to renew the support subscription doubling the price - disappointing.

I used this to: https://www.trendco.co.uk/

Functionality

It updates your virtuemart installation but it transfers all your old Joomla 2.5 data if you wish. God send!

Ease of use

Piece of cake

Documentation

Perfect

Value for money

Absolutely worth every penny.

I used this to: Updating a Joomla site from J2.5.8 / VM 2.0.8a to J3.6.2 / VM 3.0.16

Functionality

With VM Migrator I was able to migrate from Joomla 2.5+Virtuemart to a newer Joomla 3+Virtuemart platform in a few clicks, outstanding!

Ease of use

I used VM Migrator for two migrations, and both were done perfectly in a few clicks, it's incredibly easy o use.

Support

Support is also great.

Documentation

I didn't need documentation because VM Migrator is very easy to use and the instructions were very clear.

Value for money

It saved me hundreds of dollars: with VM Migrator I was able to do two migrations in a few clicks without need to hire an expert, awesome!

I used this to: I used VM Migrator to migrate two joomla+virtuemart websites. In my opinion VM Migrator is a must-have extensions for those who use joomla+virtuemart, and it's definitely one of the best extensions I've ever purchased, very worth the money, great extension.

VM Migrator is brilliant!

Functionality

I used VM Migrator to update an old Joomla 1 site to Joomla 3 with Virtuemart. And it all worked!

Ease of use

Pretty easy. Set up the old database and file paths, and new ones, choose what you're actually copying and go.

Support

Support was brilliant. Thought a prob with VM was to do with migrator but turned out it was my fault. Support fixed my prob anyway!

Documentation

Documentation to set up was all straightforward

Value for money

Saved me heaps of time and stress. Well worth it. I'm going to upgrade a store soon with 10, 000 products. Try doing that manually.

I used this to: I transferred a Joomla 1 and Virtuemart 1 to latest versions and will do a shop with 10,000 products soon from Joomla 1.5. Will also use to populate normal non VM joomla sites when upgrading because it does articles etc as well. Copies VM products, categories, orders, payment etc

Great extension

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.

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 Joomla! groupe and Virtuemart Shopper Groups* in a brand new fashion. You can dynamically assign or remove your customer to 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. With the recent addition of the Joomla! groups management, Virtuemart now 'talks' to your other components. Since you can assign a user/remove a user to a Joomla! group, your other extentions can be configured to read this value. For example, you want to manage a Ticket system or a Forum but you want it opened only for actual buyers from the past year? It is now possible ! 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.
