E-commerce web design with integrated VirtueMart shopping cart
Are you thinking of expanding your website to an e-commerce website? VirtueMart, an open source e-commerce solution for Joomla, is ideal for any e-commerce website needing a shopping cart and payment gateway.
Who is VirtueMart
VirtueMart is an e-commerce extension for the Joomla Content Management System (CMS) and has been around for over a decade. If you already have a Joomla website that you want to convert into an e-commerce site, the simplest solution is to add the VirtueMart e-commerce software to your site.
The combination of VirtueMart with Joomla would mean that you would have one of the most reliable e-commerce platforms married to one of the most widely adopted page content managers. This combination has been used in over 350,000 websites worldwide. Like Joomla, VirtueMart is an open source platform; therefore, web designers and developers has full access to the underlying code and thus the ability to modify it as needed for any reason.
VirtueMart is a powerful e-commerce solution that supports multiple languages making it easier for any customer from any country to purchase products from you. For a Joomla-powered site, VirtueMart development becomes easy because it has a fully functional and secure ‘Admin panel.’ This panel allows the store owner to manage customers, orders, payments, automatic shipping calculations (FedEx, USPS, UPS, DHL), tax calculations, wish lists, email notifications, and update an almost unlimited number of products across multiple categories.
VirtueMart customization is relatively simple and it allows for products to be filtered by features such as size, weight, and color, for enhanced customer experience.
