does it have the feature of different shoppergroup registration? For example I can register as a normal user and automatically being inserted in shoppergroup 7 or I can choose via radio button to register as reseller being inserted in shoppergroup 9...


Can I sell downloadable content like MP4 videos?


What is the estimated deliver date for the downloadable content plug in for this version?

Not sure if this is already part of the features and maybe just not listed above but I would love to see some form of product filtering feature. Not many good product filters out there.

Also, will multiple vendors be available? e.g. listing a product that can be bought from various vendors at different prices, almost like price comparison.


Excellent work. I am proud of you Max. Also your team.

I know you probably don't want to hear it here, and I welcome a pointer in the right direction.  But one problem I had with Virtuemart was selling products of different sizes and weights.  The original only allowed for shipping by weight, but an extremely light but large good would still cost more money as it would require a van not a moped.

Will any solution to that problem be forthcoming?
Will there be an easy upload potential?  My clients often already run shops and want to go online, but have a lot of products and uploading one at a time is quite time consuming.

Thanks for all your hard work I can't wait!


fantastic feature lis guys...

I'm just hoping that my highly customised VM setup will be easy/possible to actually transfer to the new VM
