Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the extension after a subscription year?

Yes, you can use the software forever, even after your subscription expires.

Can I install the extension on multiple websites?

Yes, you can install our software on as many sites as you want (unlimited domains).

Can I access your support services for multiple websites?

No, it would be too much for us to keep our quality of support at this price. You should buy another subscription to avail of our support services for another website. If you manage several websites, please contact us to get a volume discount.

Why should I renew my subscription if I can use the software forever?

In an ideal world, our plugin should always work, but there are external factors that may request a plugin update.

The API is regularly updated, and we keep up with it each time it is needed. Also, new features are added, security is upgraded for the payment process. This is depending on PCI DSS Compliance, trading laws, and also on Joomla or VirtueMart code updates. All these changes, that are out of our control, require developer work and technical support time. And of course we release a new version to cover these changes.

Why do you have a subscription business model?

The first reason is to keep improving our code, adding new features, and features requests from you, our clients, that will make you feel it is worth buying and renewing the subscription.

The second reason is to have the resources to update our code when required by external factors, like explained above.

Overall, the subscription model and the renewal, with a 30% discount, makes our business sustainable.

We’ve been fortunate to work with Joomla since 2009. We’ve observed and discussed with many Joomla businesses. The one-time sales business model did not work. The result was unsupported code and disappointed customers.

How do I renew my subscription?

To renew, simply go to the My Subscriptions area and click "Renew". Your 30% savings will be applied automatically at checkout and your subscription will be extended from its current expiration date.

Simple licensing. You can install our software on as many sites as you want (unlimited domains). You can use the software forever, even after your subscription expires.

We reward your loyalty. If you renew before your subscription expires you get a 30% discount. And you don't lose a single day of your subscription!

Why you should renew your Subscription. To get updates and patches for our plugin, and to access our support services, you need an active subscription. Also we release new versions to cover the changes that are out of our control ( API updates, security upgrade, Joomla or VirtueMart important code changes, etc). And it’s easy to renew!

Reviews for Stripe for VirtueMart

star starstarstar star 

Once you go through the documentation and try out the settings (and don't forget to test it with a "test item", it works like a dream.

Ease of use

Very easy to use, though a little play with the settings may be needed to get an understanding of the system. And you need a stripe account.


Best support ever. Hervé has been very patient and kind and helped me greatly when the Stripe plugin no longer spoke with the new updates.


Documentation is very good. You do need a Stripe account, and you need a little "try out" time to get it all in place.

Value for money

Yes, very much value for money. The plugin, Hervé's support, the easy for the customers to use it. It is all worth it.

I used this to: I use it for my IMRF Bookshop: imrfbookshop(.)org. People can now pay by credit/debit card, Paypal (different plugin) and they can request an invoice and pay by bank transfer.

This plugin is great! At first I couldn't get it to work with my install of joomla and virtuemart--but the great tech support from Puma-it (Herve) did real right by me, helping me to quickly resolve the problem and get this up and working on my site. Thanks Herve for your great Code and keep up the great work!
