Utterly Broken



Posted on 03 June 2019
Functionality
Dropdown menus do not function. Fix suggested by devs is to disable jQuery (a necessary functionality for today's websites)
Ease of use
It took around an hour to complete initial setup up to state/province selection dropdown which did not populate with states.
Support
This is supposedly a community project which no longer is in development. Support is a dead forum. Devs are rude when replying.
Documentation
Documentation that exists is for a much older version which s no longer supported and does not function
I used this to: Since the extension does not work, I apparently use it to waste my time and system resources.
Functionality
Many options for websites shopping from simple to complex, meeting the basic requirements of economic systems
Ease of use
It will be difficult for those who don't have a bit of programming knowledge, but I think it is for programmers (coding Joomla)
Support
Almost no one supports outside the community, go to the forum and talk to people, you can find it all from there
Documentation
Describe only basic issues and complex issues that require knowledge of programming and understanding of Joomla to manage.
I used this to: Large projects that require a flexible trading site can create orders, invoices, mail, coupon code..If you want to free it is the top choice

Good but not easy



Posted on 10 May 2019
Functionality
Provide all the features I need but need to improve the rating system.
Ease of use
Not easy to use it for new user. The admin interface is not good for Joomla 3
Support
Documentation
I used this to: I use for sales website. I chose it because the template I'm using only supports it.
Functionality
Puedes hacer lo que quieras realmente.
Ease of use
Facil, influye que llevo años utilizandolo
Support
Foro activo y tienes un soporte de pago de los desarrolladores
Documentation
Podría mejorar, pero no la verdad hay mucho creado en la red, aunque no sea de los creadores.
I used this to: Lo uso desde hace año, muchos compañeros me dicen que cambie, pero la verdad cada vez lo domino mas y puedo hacer cualquier ecommerce

Terrible

Functionality
Looks like it was msde 20 years ago
Ease of use
I chalkenge anyone to say it's intuitive... and i have 14 years of experience with ecommerce and in particular witj joomla
Support
Any functinality even among the basic you have to buy and pay... but it's not woking... i only lost my time and money... no refund
Documentation
Documentation, video and web partly concerns the tool and in versions from years ago
I used this to: I couldn't use it, after a month of trial and contact with the support, no solving response and it doesn't work. I changed tool and solved problem, but no refund.
Functionality
cơ bản đáp ứng được nhu cầu của hiện tai
Ease of use
không dễ điều khiên lắm nhưng sử dụng cơ bản thì OK
Support
Documentation
Functionality
Eccellente! Tra le funzioni interne e i plugin si può fare di tutto. E lo si può personalizzare ulteriormente intervenendo sul codice.
Ease of use
Bisogna imparare a conoscerlo. Non è facile destreggiarsi in un'interfaccia un po' legnosa, ma quando poi ne sei padrone tutto è facile
Support
Bisogna rivolgersi al forum, ma non sempre le risposte sono certe. Spesso va meglio con i gruppi su Facebook.
Documentation
Pessima. Praticamente quella ufficiale non esiste. Però appassionati hanno prodotto manuali di alto livello, che si possono trovare in rete
I used this to: Uso VirtueMart per due ecommerce miei e per quelli dei miei clienti. Non userei altro.
Functionality
Yes all functions are inside, but not ordered. Free does mean usable, not ordered is decent. The word "free" is missunderstud
Ease of use
It is free but raw, everything mixed. You have to code the template (fr-end bk-end) or buy both. Open souce but not for free use.
Support
There is the forum and the documentation that explains all. Good luck!
Documentation
There is documents explaining the core.
I used this to: A very basic shopping house, two products. Here in Italy there is only a plugin for this shopping component. I am forced to use it. But I prefere to pay a little and buy a simple and ordered component, ordered means decent. There is too mutch work hours!!
Functionality
is not inline with current technology
Ease of use
Not easy to follow, quirky with errors and issues that arise on a consistent basis.
Support
Slow to respond if at all.
Documentation
is ok but still based on my experience with this product the documentation does not cover all then issues that arise.
Functionality
It is the Best plugin i used
Ease of use
Good
Support
Good
Documentation
First of all , I saw videos on utubelike
and i decided to try. It works excellent.
