Tienda: Ecommerce

Tienda Overview

tienda_img2Tienda is a complete ecommerce extension for Joomla. Tienda is not a fork or bridge; it is a brand new extension designed and written from scratch on Joomla's MVC framework and can therefore be easily modified or themed using Joomla's templates.

Tienda has been built with you, the site's administrator, in mind.  While building Tienda, we focused on answering the question, "What would make it easier for us to operate our online stores?"  Tienda is the result.

The Community version is free (as in beer) and available for download now.  We also offer optional support subscriptions for the community version of Tienda, in case you need direct support from us.

We encourage you to download the Community version and participate in its development.  Please download it and then visit where you can participate by reporting bugs, making feature requests, submitting code, or even by simply following the development.

PLEASE NOTE: Altough Tienda can often be installed on the most minimal of shared hosting accounts, please be aware that your hosting account MUST meet the minimum requirements above. In addition, we strongly encourage you to consider NOT hosting any ecommerce system on a shared hosting account. This is both a security and performance issue. In addition, we've had repeated reports of very strange and inconsistant behavior from Tienda (and other Joomla extensions) on GoDaddy shared accounts. We suggest that if you are considering generating an income from your Joomla site that you invest a little of those resources to ensure that you have a reliable hosting company.
