Facebook Integration

Would you be able to add facebook integration to 1 page checkout as this would reduce the amount of data needed to be entered by customers?

Hello, is there any way how to get Personnal Data such as address or others of the customer over the Facebook API login? As far as we know the personnal data are only stored within Facebook and there is no way to send them to 3rd parties such as the shop. Additionally there would be also many problems with field synchronization if your VM fields would not match those within the Facebook - for example EU VAT ID and similar - there is a smilar problem with the Paypal Express checkout as it lacks some important fields and therefore the customer still must fill the rest of them.

If you sell digital products and you don't need any personnal data such as address and country and you need Virtuemart only for payment management, this can be done. Please specify your request with more details and also the version of Joomla/Virtuemart which you are using. Currently we spend 70 percent time on OPC2 for VM2 and 30 percently on OPC1 for VM1.1x.

Best Regards,
Site Admin
