Sorry, I cannot answer or care about any extension here at the web-site till we have war with Russia. I'll be back when we win.


До перемоги над рашистськими загарбниками роботи на сайті майже припинені. Купівля платних розширень повністю в автоматичному режимі.

P.S. The purchase of paid extension is automatic. Technical support extensions on the period of the antiterrorist operation in Ukraine will not regular (only if I have access to the Internet and free time). I apologize for temporary inconveniences.
Best regards

ZOOvirtue - the e-commerce feature for ZOO: VirtueMart integration!

You will be able to integrate any YOOtheme or custom ZOO App with VirtueMart in 5 minutes. After that, all your ZOO Items will be sync (with minimal data) as VirtueMart Products. All VirtueMart features will then be available to sell your Items!

Also other features:
+ Frontend submissions.
+ Support for sell digital products.
+ Multilingual support with ZOOlingual and language files.
+ Native SEF router.

The software is GPL; buying a single subscription you can install it on as many sites as you want and keep it running even after your subscription expires, without encrypted code, domain limitations or other such nuisances.


ZOOvirtue will only work correctly if your setup meets these requirements:

  • Up-to-date version of Joomla 2.5
  • Up-to-date version of YOOtheme ZOO 3.0.10 or above
  • Up-to-date version of VirtueMart 2.0.20 or above
  • PHP 5.3+
  • MySQL 5+

Important: I can only provide support for setups that:

  • meet the above requirements;
  • do not have extension files or Joomla! core files which have been altered in any way.

3. Add some ZOOvirtue elements to types of the application. (First Synchrocart Element).

    Hi, do you perhaps have a minimal setup with (quick start package) that have a directory with a few products of different types, some free to download, some you have to buy, with cart module as well?

    I probably are doing something wrong, but only book type items show up, and even then they cannot be added to the cart, etc. And the cart just say no app selected.
