VirtueMart is an Open Source E-Commerce solution. It is works with the Joomla! Content Management System. It can be run as a Shopping Cart, or in Catalog mode.
Easy to use for beginners and experts, it offers thousands of built in features to create your store professionally.
VirtueMart is a complete eCommerce solution. With the integration in the Content Management System Joomla!, it can be used for very different types of websites. Both are released under the GNU General Public License, which means by the end, they are free for download and use. Joomla! and VirtueMart are written in PHP and made for easy use in a PHP / MySQL environment. All you need is to download the provided Joomla/VirtueMart bundled distribution from the VirtueMart website.
Joomla provides the Core System and the Framework, which VirtueMart can use. So you can easily use a complete Shopping Cart Solution within your own dynamic Website ("Portal"), together with many other Plug-Ins, called Components and Modules, like Forums, FAQ, Guest books, and Galleries. You can change the look and feel of your site by using the Templates for Joomla! Sites, which use CSS and XHTML. Just visit the VirtueMart extension store. Even more and mostly free templates and Plug-Ins are available from Joomla!
What we offer
Access control to different management sections for work in teams
It is simple to try VirtueMart. It just needs a typical php setup with mysql database. It can be even installed on an home computer (search for XAMP for Windows, Mamp for Mac and Lamp for Linux). The VirtueMart full installer provides a fully configured and prepared Joomla with VirtueMart already installed. It is by far the easiest way for a beginner to start with a shop. The VirtueMart Fullinstaller uses a slightly changed Joomla installer and installs VirtueMart itself after entering the administration area.
VirtueMart is an opensource community project and so there is highly frequented forum http://forum.virtuemart.net/. It is also possible to hire a developer there. The company iStraxx, which is responsible for the main development of VirtueMart provides also direct support.
