Virtuemart and Hikashop uses Joomla’s admin interface for store administration, and because it is implemented inside an already rich CMS, administration will come very easily to Joomla users. Given that Joomla is (probably) one of the best CMS systems out there, it may easily give OsCommerce and others a run for their money. OsCommerce is powering over 228,700 online stores, whereas 2.5 million people have downloaded VirtueMart so far. These facts have inclined us to give you e-commerce solutions based on Virtuemart or Hikashop.
