Run Snipcart on Joomla! CMS with CMSnipcart

CMExtension would like to anounce the first release of CMSnipcart, a Joomla! component for building an ecommerce website powered by Snipcart and Joomla! CMS.

Snipcart is a “lean, powerful HTML/JavaScript shopping cart” which can be used on any website. You just need to include some lines of code and start selling, Snipcart takes care of your payments, order history, your customers... so you can have a shopping site running quickly. There is no setup fee or monthly fee, Snipcart takes a small 2% fee of your sale or only $10 fee if your monthly sales are under $500. You can find more info about Snipcart at

Because Snipcart is an HTML/JavaScript shopping cart, you can find it difficult to setup your site if you are not a web developer or if you are not familiar with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. CMSnipcart helps you do all of the technical tasks to have a Joomla! website with Snipcart integrated.

CMSnipcart includes:

  • CMSnipcart component: the main component for managing your store.
  • CMSnipcart system plugin: inserting Snipcart code into Joomla! pages.
  • Profile module: showing login, logout buttons and Snipcart order history.
  • Shopping cart module: showing items in Snipcart shopping cart.
  • Products module: showing list of products horizontally or vertically.

CMLiveDeal 1.9.0 Stable is released

CMLiveDeal 1.9.0 is released to fix a critical bug and introduces a new feature.

In CMLiveDeal 1.8.2, we fixed some issues to make CMLiveDeal work with Falang, however it created unexpected bug in category module and city module. If we clicked on the item in the modules, we got SQL error "Table 'falang_content' doesn't exist" if Falang was not installed. This bug is fixed in 1.9.0, if you use Falang you will need to set "Falang integration" to "Enabled" in the component's configuration.

The new feature in CMLiveDeal is featured deal, you can set deals as "featured", display them on the top of deal list or add "featured" ribbon to its top right corner in deal list. You can find these options in under "Deal list" tab in configuration. You can set deals as featured in back-end's deal list and deal form.

Thank you for reporting the bug of Falang integration! Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or find out any problems in CMLiveDeal 1.9.0.

CMLiveDeal 1.8.2 Stable is released

CMExtension is pleased to announce the release of CMLiveDeal 1.8.2 Stable.

This version provides some bug fixes and improvements:

  • In back-end's coupon form, user is not required any more, this gives you ability to create a manual coupon which are claimed by guests.
  • Fixed bug in search module.
  • Fixed wrong redeemed date bug in customer form in front-end.
  • Deal detail URL in merchant's deal list now uses deal detail menu item instead of using deal list menu item.
  • Fixed Javascript error when deal title had double quotes.
  • Fixed Falang incompatibility in category module and search module.
  • Fixed broken HTML layout in deal list.

New payment system

We received many questions and feature requests for a way to require customer to pay in order to receive coupon in CMLiveDeal. This feature is currently not availabe in CMLiveDeal because CMLiveDeal is used to provide free coupons, but we will change that. We will add a payment system to CMLiveDeal to allow site owner earns money from customers and merchants and also allow merchants to receive payments from customers.

Below is our plans to build this new payment system.
