Some weeks ago, we have published a new Joomla! & Virtuemart enhancement that allows a simple and flexible integration of your Virtuemart online shop with product portals and services such as Google Merchant Center (used to be Google Base).
Integrating Virtuemart with Product Portals – How to Proceed
The enhancement consists of a basic component which provides the infrastructure to aggregate your data and ensures a simple and central management of the interfaces. The interfaces are Joomla! plugins which can easily be installed using the Joomla! installer. If a plugin is installed for a service, the configuration of the respective provider is also available centrally in the component.
At present (November 2010), a Google Merchant Center plugin is installed by default. In the near future, we will provide other plugins by default, e.g. for Günstiger.de, Idealo.com or Gimahot.de.
On request, we can also consider other providers and create special interfaces for them. As we will add these plugins into our packages, you will get a special discount on the development price.
