New Release VirtueMart 2.0.24

This release is introducing SOFORT Banking, a popular payment solution in 10 european countries. We also integrated some bug fixes again, see the list below.

SOFORT Banking: The attractive payment method for you

Your customers simply pay in your online shop just as they are used to: by entering their familiar online banking login details and confirmation codes ensuring a maximum level of security. You will receive a real-time transaction confirmation immediately after the transfer has been listed.

Sofort BankingSOFORT Banking is a direct payment system and works like an automated advanced payment (by bank transfer) within seconds.

When shopping online, your customer selects SOFORT Banking as a payment method. Then, your customer selects his/her country and enters the bank sort code into a securely encrypted payment wizard. Afterwards, the customer enters his/her online banking login details and confirms the credit transfer by entering a confirmation code.

Your benefit: You will receive a real-time transaction confirmation that a transfer has been listed.

Download VirtueMart 2.0.24 as zip (in case your server can't process tar.gz)

Last but not least - VirtueMart 2.1 beta is available for testing!

VirtueMart 2.1 beta is already "running" on Joomla! 3.1, but expect to see errors. Our version 2.1 has an improved customfield system and a better cart. These make it easier for template and plugin developers to change and manipulate the cart data, for example changing the weight or even the name of a product. Although this beta version is already running on Joomla! 3.x, it is not completly tested. We need people helping us to get the new version compatible for both, J2.5.x and J3.x.

If you are a 3rd party developer or just curious, please install VirtueMart 2.1 beta and let us know your experience in the forum.

I have the same problem as #8:

If I add an item with limited stock, that stock is added to the cart and no more. But if a press Add to cart again, the items are sent again to the cart.

This is wrong and affects severely the stock control allowing people to order non existent units!

There is a problem in stock control - example:

Let´s say theres 1 item and 2 in stock.
The customer tries to buy 4 items - he gets a message that there are not enough items available -> ok!
The customer then first puts 2 items into the cart, next he puts another 2 items into the cart -> he will succeed to have at least 4 items (2x2 items) in the cart even though there are only 2 items in stock!

If I remember right, this was not possible in earlier VM versions.
Please solve it!
