In VM do it through Joomla users -   then when you have set this up. Check user manager option on the right - just check your settings.

then go to VM users and check there for users -

Hi John
Thank you for coming back to me. Only I am confused here. Firstly, I don't understand what you mean by 'just check your settings' What settings, what do you mean?
Secondly, you say check VM users - where? I don't see this at all.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards
Keith

Hello,

VM is uses joomla user component and extends it with additional information in shopper.
If you have a joomla user (e.g user1) and go to VM --> Order & Shoppers --> Shoppers you can see all joomla registered users. Also you can see the VM group and shopper group that user belongs to.
If you expand a shopper (user) you are able to see additional information regarding the user (address, state, country, etc) and the user's order list.

Hope it help.

Regards.

OK, so I take it VM uses the Joomla User Manager to take in its users, as opposed to the older version that you used to have to use the VM's own user manager?
I also see where you mean by checking VM users, that is actually when creating an order - OK.
However, I have users in my Joomla user manager and they don't show in vurtuemart nor VM invoice.
I realise I must be doing something wrong but I really would appreciate a bit of help
Thank you again.
regards
Keith

Hi Bytelord
Thank you for coming in on this and helping.
I am afraid I don't see that my joomla registered users are coming into VM. I wonder do they need to belong to a shop group? I am only using the defualt one
