Introduction

Virtuemart Payment Systems, Virtuemart Orders

The integration of the TaxCloud USA taxes service into Virtuemart.
Now available for VirtueMart 3.0/Joomla3.6! (from version VM3.0.16)
------ there is an update for users going to php7 .. this is not an inherent TaxCloud plugin problem but a problem with the servers cached version of the WSDL file being not compatible across php versions. basically the fix is to allow the cache to be disregarded by TaxCloud until the cache runs out and then the cache can be reused. This is version TaxCloud 3.0.16 and is fully checked on VM3.0.18 - full instructions in the plugin. -------
As they say on their website, "TaxCloud is a the internet's only free sales tax processing service". Our integration is a standard Joomla Plugin with no core hacks. After enabling the plugin one simple configuration in the Virtuemart 3.0/2.0 Taxes & Calculation Rules is all that's necessary. Address verification with the USPS is included so if the address cannot be found the user is redirected back to their address management to correct the error.

You are required to register with https://taxcloud.net/ to receive an account id and key. This is completely free. Check out their Terms & Conditions: http://taxcloud.net/#pricing . Please check with TaxCloud for the particular state/s you will be using this for as to any supplementary charge for tax lookup. For the address verification a registration with the USPS is now no longer required. Just enter a 1 in the api key field.

Full information is available here: http://www.gjcwebdesign.com/eximg/taxcloud/GJCVirtuemarttaxcloud_handbook.pdf

Your version of VM must be greater than VM3.0.16 (and it should be VM3.0.18) .
If so install version VMtaxcloud3.0.16_VM3.0.18.zip . This is tested working on VM version 3.0.16+. This is the latest test stable. So effectively the minimum it will work on is VM3.0.16

This provides full tax management for your USA taxes - a free service from TaxCloud!: http://taxcloud.net/#pricing


Functionality

Does what it says, grabs the Tax Rate from TaxCloud and returns it in a VM calculation field.

Ease of use

TaxCloud/VM are inherently confusing, don't expect it to be a walk in the park. However, the plugin itself makes it as easy as possible.

Support

Very helpful and responded quickly, even though it turned out to be our fault.

Documentation

Didn't need this but assuming it is fine.

Value for money

This is the best solution for connecting TaxCloud to VM, works out of the box if you set it up properly, and if Virtuemart behaves.

I used this to: E-commerce websites.

Functionality

The extension does exactly what it says, and requires following the excellent detailed instructions that are provided with the extension.

Ease of use

Easy to use if you follow the steps given for setup, make sure to check your joomla and virtuemart versions.

Support

John was super responsive some of the best support I've ever seen on an extension!!!

Documentation

Documentation is excellent step by step the only way to mess up installation is to not follow the steps.

Value for money

Saved a lot of pain in coding thx so much!

I used this to: I used this for a company here in FL that needed taxes calculated for every county! this worked perfectly!

Functionality

California has hundreds of sales tax districts with varying rates. Taxcloud for Virtuemart fully automates the sales tax calculations.

Ease of use

Easy to set up and once installed, transparent to the user.

Support

I was initially having issues with the tax calculation disappearing in the shopping cart. The developer found and corrected it in Virtuemart

Documentation

Very easy setup instructions

Value for money

I often look for free extensions, but this one is spot on for value. Could not run our site without it!

I used this to: calculating California sales tax with hundreds of rates that are based upon the shipping destination. Great plug in!

Functionality

Everything works seamlessly, and most importantly it works in the background. Any US Zip code tax rate at your fingertips!

Ease of use

This plugin has simple, easy to follow directions, including setting everything up in Taxcloud. Once it's set up, it just works great.

Support

John provides excellent support. You are in safe and most importantly extremely competent hands.

Documentation

Easy to follow directions from both this plugin, as well as when you are filling things out on Taxcloud.

Value for money

Excellent value for the money. We will use this plugin all the time, and because it's always updating itself, it's great peace of mind.

I used this to: VM 2 and 3. We're currently on 2, but I know there's a VM3 Version. This plugin serves a vital function to us, especially with crazy US zip code laws.

Functionality

I think that this plugin is totally needed for virtuemart to work in the US

Ease of use

It requires a USPS account and a communication e-mail with them to enable some extra features, but it is completely documented.

Support

Excellent and immediate support.
John not only found my problem but also suggested a bunch of changes to improve my website!

Documentation
Value for money

Instead of manually inserting all the zip codes and taxes and changing them from time to time, you give 70euros and you are worry free!


I purchased this, really nice plugin and works perfectly.

Good support, always available for help.


The extension is really work base on description and screenshots.



Also the developer support is really great, quick response and very helpful, they are willing to invest their own time to make sure the plugins will work correctly.



Note.. just make sure your VM and Joomla is always latest and updated version.


This program is very stable, easily installed, packaged with easy to use instructions, and does exactly what it says it does. Initially, during setup, I thought there might have been an error with the instructions as the plugin did not work right away. I emailed gjcwebdesign. Within an hour I got a response. After a small amount of correspondence, gjcwebdesign determined the issue was NOT from the plugin and was directly related to the products not having SKU numbers yet. Sure enough, he was correct and, when I input the SKU numbers, the plugin worked perfect.



This is product, while seeming to have an error, worked perfect out of the box and in conjunction with the TaxCloud/USPS web sites. Just remember to make sure the TaxCloud and USPS API codes are correct, that the CURL library is enabled, and the products are setup with SKUs. Thank you for your hard work on this excellent program, gjcwebdesign!

The "nofollow" is an HTML attribute value used to instruct some search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target's ranking in the search engine's index. If the page is from a section or category enabled via the parameters the plugin is parsed unless the page id is specifically excluded.

This is the Virtuemart 3 Radius Shipping Plugin that makes real time distance calculations between the Vendors address and the customer and returns calculated shipping costs to the cart. This is ideal for business or more "deliver" than "ship" .. e.g. restaurants, florists, companies selling services that require travel time and distance to be calculated etc. The plugin has a wide range of configurations to suit just about every shipping schema you can come up with - if not we can extend it for you for a very reasonable price. The distance is calculated either from the VM Vendor address or a pre-configured address in the Shipping method administration. It is calculated via the Google Maps v3 api and has full feedback for the customer so they can see what address the api has found and if necessary correct it. You can read lots more about it from our http://www.gjcwebdesign.com/eximg/radiusshipping/GJCRadiusShippingVirtuemart3.pdf.

This is the VirtueMart 3.0 Product Review Component that provides an 'Amazon' like product review. In other words users can only review products that they have actually bought. The Admin can of course add new reviews and moderate/edit existing reviews. The admin can now also make replies to the review which are displayed with the review its self. It is also possible for visitors to rank the reviews as useful or not. Where child products are used the reviews are shown for all the children together. The display of the reviews is completely compatible with Google rich Snippets. At the moment any VirtueMart registered user can review any product whether they have bought it or not. With this extension only registered users who have bought the product can review it. The package can also handle "one off" products as it stores each purchased products details and user information to a separate component which the administrator has full control over. Even if the product is later deleted from VM there record is still kept along with the image in the VMReview component. It can also be set up to send multiple review reminder emails to the purchaser after a set period of time and at set intervals.

The VM e-go Shipping for VirtueMart - A simple to install and configure shipping plugin for a popular & economis Australian freight service. ++++++ UPDATE 21.05.2014 ++++++++++++ In their "wisdom" e-go have released a new api (v2) which totally breaks the one they have had for at least 5 years - no backward compatibility at all!!!! The new api requires suburbs - written/spelt EXACTLY as they require as well as postcodes - a perfect formula for disaster... I have written a new plugin for this but of course it relies on the client knowing and spelling his/her suburb correctly. You need to add a new compulsary shopper field in your registration/billing and shipping VM forms. Contact me with your purchase details and I will send you this updated copy. This isn't of course ideal so I have developed a template over ride and system plugin for the address form of VM to make use of a suburb api that e-go have made available. There will have to be a charge for this as it is a large coding effort - any complaints please direct them to e-go for having the arrogance to completely change their api with no backward compatibility and hugely additional complications. Contact me if you require this. We are happy to announce the VirtueMart 3.0 e-go "Australia's #1 Cheap Courier & Freight Service" that fully integrates and shows real time quotations based on vendor and customer postcodes in the checkout process. Installs as a native VirtueMart 3 Joomla 3 Shipping Module. Install the Joomla 3 Plugin by using the standard Joomla installer for the file vm3.0ego_shipping.zip. The module calculates in real time the shipping price from e-go considering the following parameters - Store Owner Postcode Customer Postcode Quantity Weight (kilo) Length (centimeter) Height (centimeter) Depth (centimeter) Curl needs to be enabled

Prevent one off and low stock items being added to multiple carts! The Product Checkout Lock for VirtueMart prevents single stock articles being added to more than one cart at a time. This extension DOES NOT WORK with stockable child products!!! Do not buy it if you want this lock for them - it will not work! With a standard Virtuemart 3 install it is quite possible for a single item (i.e. an item with a stock level of 1) to be ordered multiple times by different customers because no stock level is adjusted until the item is fully checked out. Just adding to your cart doesn't prevent other customers from also adding it to their cart and successfully checking out - not good if you are running a shop that sells one off items! Our plugin and template adjustments solve this problem fully - as soon as an item with a stock level of 1 is added to a cart it is 'locked' i.e. other visitors are prevented from adding it to their cart until the item is 'released' by manually being removed from the cart or the cart session of the 'buyer' running out and our plugin then releasing it. If the item is successfully checked out then the stock falls to 0 so it then can not be ordered. Ideal for VM sites for art & handicraft works where only 1 item exists.
