Joomla News: Joomla 3.x without VirtueMart?

What is the main purpose of an online store? Surely to sell! But how to do it through the website? What actions should be taken so that the customer could pay for the item through your store? The Payment systems help us with this .

Thare are a lot of Payment systems (VirtueMart, HikaShop, JoomShopping, redSHOP and others). Each of them has it's pros and cons. However, to date VirtueMart is the most popular component for Joomla e-commerce. This is due to the fact that it's free of charge, huge functional and extensibility.

Your site will be all right as long as you choose to upgrade your old version of Joomla to Joomla 3.x. You must to be prepare for the fact that VirtueMart will not work. The whole point is that the current version 2.6.6 is compatible with Joomla 2.5. Despite the fact that the active support of Joomla 2.5 will exist only until the end of 2014, compatible with Joomla 3.x the current version of VirtueMart does not have. Full support for Joomla 3.x is expected in VirtueMart 3. Now is available in beta version 2.9.

What to use instead of Virtuemart?

As a great alternative I offer JoomShopping 4.4.2, but I repeat again there are a lot of other Payment systems.

Component JoomShopping 4.4.2 is one of the most popular components of online commerce, which is fully compatible with Joomla 3.

    The main characteristics of JoomShopping 4.4.2 are:
  • simple and intuitive interface admin panel
  • the ability to install multiple currencies
  • multilanguage component
  • enabling the selection of several methods of delivery and payment ability to add new payment methods such as WebMoney, Yandex.Money, Qiwi, LiqPay, etc..
  • management of tax regimes for each product
  • the possibility of buying goods without registration

Let's agree, it's not so bad. Until there is not the correct version of Virtuemartwe should look at other options of Payment systems.
