Virtuemart

Questions about the use of Virtuemart.

Log in to the back end of your Joomla! site, and then go to the VirtueMart control panel:

components>virtuemart>list payment methods

Select the "PayPal" method and then ensure that check box next to "active" is checked.

Next, under the "configuration" tab, enter your paypal payment e-mail in the appropriate field.

Also, note that this is the same area where you can turn off the PayPal test mode (otherwise known as a sandbox).

Go to your product you want to be FEATURED and under the PRODUCT STATUS tab enable the ON SPECIAL checkmark.

Your guess as to why it doesn't just say "featured" is as good as my guess.

To use Canada Post's Sell OnlineTM Shipping Module in Virtuemart you will need a Canada Post Merchant ID.  Here are the steps to obtain one.

First, sign up with Canada Post for a VentureOne Preferred Small Business Client account (it's free).

Once you have your VentureOne account #, send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., requesting your account be registered on the Sell Online Server.  Be sure to include the following fields with your relevant information filled out afterwards:

CUSTOMER / VENTURE ONE NUMBER:
COMPANY NAME:
ADDRESS:
CITY:
PROVINCE:
POSTAL CODE :
MAIN CONTACT:
TELEPHONE NUMBER:

The This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. e-mail appears to be managed manually by a human, so it may be a business day or so (based on Cybersalt's experience) before you receive an e-mail back with your Retailer ID for the Sell Online server.  That e-mail will also contain instructions for setting up the rest of your shipping profile with Canada Post.
