Inserts any custom Breezing Form into your VirtueMart checkout process


What our Breezing Forms Plugin for VirtueMart does is relatively straightforward. Based on what a customer in your store chooses to buy, you can require specific custom Breezing Forms to become part of the VirtueMart checkout workflow.

Known Limitations of Older Versions

1) User must be logged in at the time the form is triggered, so the Breezing Form responses can be associated with their account. This makes it difficult to use if you have a one page checkout, where the user isn't even registered until the same time that they checkout.

2) Breezing Form responses currently do not show up within the VM order form record. This will require some hacks in VM to achieve, and there are some complexities, especially if you have repeat buyers, or want the buyer to be able to update the form responses after purchase.

Possible workarounds: Several clients either customized VM themselves to integrate the desired data, hired us to customize their VM orders, or used custom reporting. In many cases we used SQL2Excel PRO to extract all of the BF responses and associated VM orders and report them in a user friendly manner for business processing.
