    Hi, is the paymet a onetime payment ? Or a subcription ?
    • Aishwarya Tiwari
      I would like to inform you that, as Joomla Virtuemart is an open-source platform so the payment for the add-on will be for one time, not the subscription-based.
      For any other query, please create a support ticket here at –

    Does the auction software/script require virtuemart? or is the Auction for Virtuemart a standalone product?
    • Gautam Bagchi

      To use this addon, you must have Joomla and VirtueMart. This is basically addon based on VirtueMart.

    I need to have in the overview inside shop, where you can click on going to bid page, the last bid price
    I can not get this inside “sublayout” at template, what was inside download.

    Now you need to login, than you see bid products and the last bid price. To boost visitors to login we need that the price is directley visible, the last bid. Than login en than bid.
