K2mart v2 now compatible with Joomla! 2.5 and Virtuemart 2.x

Tagged under:
[SmartAddons.com] This time is the news for those are operating and managing a SHOPPING cart by using Joomla 2.5 and VirtueMart v2. Just consider using K2mart as your middleman to e-commerce success. It now supports Joomla 2.5 already!

WHY?

Past: Virtuemart powers your website's e-shop. Updates are painful, styling is a nightmare.

Now: K2 for your catalog and K2mart to import and syncronize your Virtuemart products into K2.
What K2mart really does is that it will integrate Virtuemart and K2 allowing you to build your product catalog using K2's advanced content, taxonomy and templating options with Virtuemart's powerful cart and checkout functionality.

Requirement

  • Joomla 2.5 latest. Joomla 1.7 still in supporting but lacks of stability
  • K2 2.5.5 or later
  • VM v2.0.2 or later

Install/Update

  • Install in Extension Manager as usual.
  • If using K2mart v1, it's NOT impossible to update to this.

How to use?

  • Create products by K2mart
  • K2mart automatically syncs this product into VM

  • K2 item field                 -> Virtuemart product field
    Title Product Name
    Published Published
    Featured On Featured
    Introtext Short Description
    Fulltext Product Description
    Image Product Image

  • Edit product in K2mart and get updated automatically in VM! (vice verse not right however!)
  • If using VM already, you can use K2mart migrator to import those existing products into K2mart!

What interesting?

The benificial things from this integration:
  • Improve your products and shopping cart appearance
  • SEO more easier with K2 URLs, and even better with sh404SEF!
  • MVC templates overrides help you recreate the color scheme and style to suit your need!

Our products

Remember that with some specific purposes, you still need modules supporting K2mart so that your shop works seamlessly. We proudly created something like that. The good news is that in our modules for K2 from now then, we will support K2mart inside. So just consider some K2 modules from this catalog for consideration!

Thank you.
