Easter Break 2014 - Office Closed

Enjoy those Easter eggs! (Which have nothing to do with the original Christian mythology, but rather derive their roots in the Pagan religions that preceded it for thousands of years or even the Zoroastrians.)Did you know that in moderation chocolate is very good for you? Did you also know that most Easter eggs have very little actual cocoa (the real chocolate) in them, in fact they mostly sugar in various forms - which isn't that good for you.We'll be closed from Monday, 14th April to Monday, 21st April 2014. Clients with Priority Support contracts will not be affected. Ad-hoc Support clients can still lodge tickets but they won't be processed until we return to the office on Tuesday, 22nd April 2014.

CommWeb MIGS Plugin for VM2


CommWeb PluginAbout

CommWeb Payment Plugin for VirtueMart 2.0.x, is a standard Joomla! plug-in of the VMPayment class (i.e. it's written to work with VirtueMart 2.0's payment model).


Based on your Commonwealth Bank Merchant account this plug-in supports Visa and Mastercard payments using the CommWeb MIG Payment gateway.

To use this plug-in you will need a Commonwealth Bank account with both a Merchant and CommWeb facility attached.


This plug-in provides the basic MIGS support for Visa and Mastercard payment.

CommWeb MIGS implementation requires you to have an SSL Certificate installed, and therefore this version of the plug-in requires one as well.


Please note the following about this plug-in:

  • local SSL certificates only are supported.
  • standard payments only are available through the CommWeb MIGS gateway.
  • CommWeb MIGS gateway does not support recurring payments.
  • CommWeb MIGS gateway does not support refunds (you must use their web interface).

These CommWeb MIGS gateway features are not currently available but can be added:

  • 3D Secure, support can be added
  • Risk Management, support can be added
  • Amex, JCB or Diners, support can be added

The features which "can be added" are not available yet as we haven't had access to an account with the features enabled to test against, no other reason. Due to a quirk in the way CommWeb works while we have implemented the features internally we haven't been able to put them into the released plug-in as we can't actually test them without a client account that has the features enabled.

If you require any of these additional features and have a CommWeb account with them enabled please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  to get the plug-in upgraded.


As the plug-in works within the VirtueMart 2.0 for Joomla! 2.5 you will need to refer to the following articles:

  1. Installing an extension for Joomla!
  2. Configuring CommWeb MIGS gateway plug-in for VirtueMart 2.0

When using VirtueMart 2.0 it is "recommended" that you have the "Official" manual on hand — VirtueMart 2 User Manual eBook (please note we are not associated with this eBook/it's author/VirtueMart.net and provide this link only as a reference for VirtueMart users, it is not an endorsement in any form by us).
