VirtueMart ist eine hochgradig konfigurierbare und anpassbare mehrsprachige Warenkorb-Lösung für Joomla 2.5 und 3 mit einer großen Anzahl von zusätzlichen Erweiterungen.

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.

Functionality

Very Poor. To many things did not work decided to use a different store.

Ease of use

Very Poor. Lots of options however many of them do not work

Support

Very Poor. We decided to move to a different store due to the support and issues we came across.

Documentation

Very Poor.

I used this to: We decided to move to a different store that does not have so many bugs. They will not refund us for the plugins we purchased to extend the free version. Extensions developed by VM. The system would not work with the latest version, Payment processing would not work and more.

Best for me

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!

Support
Documentation

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!

Good for me

No Longer a Good Option


Posted on 31 October 2016
Functionality

Unfortunately Virtuemart has become very bug riddled over the years and the functionality has suffered.

Ease of use

The interface is no longer user friendly like other options around.

Support

Zero support from being free makes it near impossible to fix this outdated piece of software.

Documentation

The documentation is often confusing and not related to some items that have changed over the years.

I used this to: Multiple stores over the years and it has now got to the stage it just needs to be torn apart and rebuilt from scratch. It does not work without fixing bugs constantly.
