Joomshopping – create an online store on Joomla


You want to create your own online store but don’t know how? We will help with this, because for Joomla created many components that are designed for installation on the project full shop with categories and products, as well as descriptions and different characteristics. One of the best in this regard is considered to be an extension called VirtueMart. Let’s examine the main features of this component.

JoomShopping installation takes place as usual in Joomla using the extension Manager. In the component settings you can see all the settings that you’ll need for the organization on its website a full-fledged store. These are such items as:
Installing and Upgrading
Each of these items provides additional information and options. They are all located in tabs for easy access.
The principle of entering data in the component is very simple: you determine which categories you will be on the website, then establish in them the goods and the goods prescribed characteristics such as weight, dimensions, delivery and payment, cost, etc.
In the “Orders” and “Customers” are free to accept or reject orders and their final cost, as well as view detailed information about them.
During the passage of the order on the website you will have several fields to fill in (they can also be set in the component JoomShopping).
If you have the site provides a currency that differs from the default installed on the system, you may also want to change it, even if it was originally at the rate that needs to be specified manually, which is not very convenient. But I think soon this will fill the lack of developers.
As for payment methods in the store, everything is very good, unlike the free analogue of VirtueMart. We’ll talk about it in following materials of our site. For example, in VirtueMart you can set the payment options, such as:
Yandex Money
Qiwi wallet
Bank card
Payment terminals
Mobile payments
This is not a complete list of payment methods that you can take with this component.
The ability to install an unlimited number of products and categories.
Fast shop, all basic functions and parameters.
Support and updates on the sites.
