Many shoppers of Virtuemart just want to save their product choices and come back later to perform the checkout process with the saved cart. This should be a core function of Virtuemart template. Today, Netbase releases this plugin to improve your Virtuemart store with this function.

The function works like a "Add to Wish List" but with products in your saved cart instead of any product.

How does it work?

- Shoppers can add products into the cart normally and products will be displayed on Save Cart

- With Save Cart module, shoppers can add data into his Virtuemart profile

- With Save Cart, shoppers can send email of the saved data to any email address as he wants.

- If shoppers haven't log-in the site, the module will ask shoppers to register or log-in before saving products into cart

- The module supports Ajax effects for the Save so customers will not have to reload the page while the cart is saved into their Virtuemart profile

- Only shoppers can see the save cart data in their profile

- A user profile can save UNLIMITED carts into and restore them any time

- The restored save cart will replace the current save cart for shoppers to check out

- Shoppers can put a name for each Cart when they save it, so they will know clearly the purpose of cart

This plugin is in fact A+ module into your Joomla Virtuemart. You WILL NOT HAVE TO DO any template change / core Virtuemart file hack.

How to set it up

Step 1: install the plugin as a normal Joomla installation

Step 2: Activate the plugin

Step 3: go to your menu, create a new Virtuemart Menu ( link to Virtuemart -> Account Maintenance)

Step 4: go to front end joomla, add a product into Virtuemart cart, and you will see the Save Cart with all the functions of this plugin.

I bought this plugin and I have a problem in the correct version jQuery - I can not deal with it - if anyone can help me?
Oh come on! Can you upload the most newer version of jQuery in the place where the more older version is?

As if it were that easy I would not do the problem - I'm getting set to automatically download from google:

<script src="//" <script type="text/javascript"> </ script>

and I can not find where to switch link parameters. I tried to turn it off and insert your own link but it does not bring the expected results - hence my question - where to find a forum where there are many well-wishers.

Please go to your admin panel site, and go to Component--> Virtuemart-->Configuration tab--> Template and uncheck Use external google jQuery library, so you can turn off it.

Hello everybody!
Is it possible to customize plugin to have into the email also the image of the product?
I guess I've to edit the mail.php file located in tmpl directory and add the php code(and the style declaration) to echo the image too.

Something like this :

<?php if ( !empty($product['product_attributes']) ) { ?>
<div style="font-size: 90%">
<p style="margin: 0 0 "><strong>Options:</strong></p>
<div style="padding-left: 10px;">
<?php echo  $product['product_attributes'?>

but with images instead of attributes. Anyone have any suggestion or may tell me the exact name of array img field?

thanks a lot in advance!


Hi a_mbs,

Please try to add image for $data in the loadMail() fundtion in helper.php file. And at the mail.php you can echo it.

Thank you !
