VirtueMart online shop systemVirtueMart is the system we recommend when you need a full-featured online shop for product sales, and you also need full content management facilities to publish related business activities like a discussion forum, service tickets, job or project management, a membership, social media or library system and so on. VirtueMart slots right into Joomla! so that all the system components and your custom business systems can talk to each other, and your staff can run the whole shooting match in one place.
