Open Source Shopping Cart for Joomla! and Mambo

Posted · Category: eCommerce, GPL License

VirtueMart is an Open Source E-Commerce solution to be used together with a Content Management System (CMS) called Joomla! (and Mambo). Joomla! and VirtueMart are written in PHP and made easy for use in a PHP/MySQL environment.

All you need is to download the latest Joomla distribution from www.joomla.org and the VirtueMart package from this site. 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, Guestbooks and Galleries.

VirtueMart is free software released under the GNU General Public License. No limitations exist for VirtueMart. You can create and maintain a site with an unlimited number of categories, products, orders, customers, etc.

Requirements: Joomla! Framework

    virtuemart is great! I have recently implemented it into a streetwear clothing website with great effect. Easy to customise if you have good html/css knowlege.

    I wouldn’t normall post links to in comments but it might benefit people to check what can be done to virtuemart with little effort – http://www.vcclothing.com

  • What’s the news?

  • i think virtuemart upgrade itself along with joomla 1.5. but although virtuemart is great, somehow i dont feel like it could smashed the e commerce market.
    i try magento and visually its just awesome, but it seems lot of problems in the package, perhaps they’re not ready yet to be so overly exposed.

    This article is misleading. VirtueMart has two different releases for the two different CMS. The version developed for Mambo certainly does NOT require Joomla to run!
