VirtueMart, which is free, is an e-commerce component for Joomla and is used to sell goods or generate orders online by setting up shopping carts and catalogues. Joomla! (www.joomla.org) is the most world's most popular open source Content Management System for the development of dynamic websites. Thus, you need to have a website which is built in Joomla or you should have knowledge of Joomla. Thus, VirtueMart is installed inside of Joomla.

VirtueMart powers large on-line shops providing the performance, usability and security you expect from professional software. You can create and maintain a site with an unlimited number of categories, products, orders, customers, etc.

Some people only use VirtueMart, for example, for clients to place orders on the website. There is no online payment taking place. They then invoice the customer once they receive the order from VirtueMart.

Most of South African Payment Gateways supports VirtueMart.
