    This is a very useful extension to be considered if you are selling products online through a VirtueMart shop. Virtuemart Sales is very simple to install and setup. But if you ever have problems or suggestions for further improvements the support is incredible! Just email them and you will always get a very quick and friendly response within minutes.
    I strongly recommend this commercial extension to anyone!


    The component is good, easy to install and configure. The technical support is fast and friendly


    While looking for an extension that was capable to display products on sale with a discount label, I found the Virtuemart Sales extenstion. It indeed contained a small bug when I tried the first time, but that was solved very quickly by Yiannis. He even managed to implement some of my recommendations for improvement on short notice, which now makes it a very flexible extension to display featured sales products from a Virtuemart shop, without any need to create a sale category.

    Excellent extension, good support at a price that matched my expectations.

    Highly recommended!


    There are so little to be told when everything goes according to plan! Excellent support, installation made with one click, the necessity of this component is obvious. I highly recommend it.
