Functionality

i can build complex shop system with it

Ease of use

very easy

Support

good support via forum

Documentation

very good

I used this to: local shopping cart website for turkey store

Functionality

Works well as a good online shop for the most part. The best out of the free shop extensions, but for a bit of money you can get better ones

Ease of use

Mostly simple to get around, but the settings and customisation can be big task. Setting up products is okay though, even for beginners

Support

Good support, can be quite helpful with getting issues fixed and assistance. But they can be rude, a couple of admins treat you like idiots.

Documentation

Not the easiest to understand at times, but it can help. Searching online on forums usually is better and quicker

I used this to: A few complex and large online shops. Retail, wholesale and both

Functionality

Great Shopping Cart


Posted on 18 September 2017

If it runs, the shop runs very stable.

The installation and furnishing is a bit tricky.

The forum helps you quickly!

Documentation

it's quite easy to use even if looks complicated at the first look

Support

good

Documentation

good but could be better

I used this to: I'm using virtuemart from 4 years for my own shop and for most of my customers shops

Functionality

Nothing that looks to work cohesively togeather. I ended up going to paGO Commerce from 'corePHP' go there to get a real commerce system

Ease of use

This is the opposite of ease of use. Horrible to use. Lots of time wasted with this system.

Support

Its a headache

Documentation

not easy to use

Forced Rating


Posted on 20 June 2017
Functionality

Many great functionalities. Though I am forced to write a review before I can use them.

Ease of use

Not always logical

Support

OK. Support of change problems to new major version not sufficient.

Documentation
Owner's reply: I really wonder who forced you to write a review here? The feature of this package are free and no one is allowed to force you to write a review here.

Functionality

Very good

Ease of use

Quite easy

Documentation

Not enough, searched for help but all docs are for older version

I used this to: at the momment as online product catalog for my business

Functionality

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

Support

They have a good forum.

Documentation

Popular extension, not hard to find help and tutorials. But i didn't found official guides for beginners.

I used this to: Build every Joomla store. Never used another extension.
