I don't think there are any feasibility study done on VM, and frankly if it was as real expert strength study I am afraid it would not be favorable.

Personally I have hate love hate relationship with WM, having built many site using WM - more than 10 over the last few months, I have to say I don't sleep well at night. There are just to many issues. One thing is I have no problem using Joomla for a commercial website, but when it comes down to a store - which in my mind - is the core of the business - I don't feel comfortable using a solution where there is only support through a forum/community and the software development is dependent on someone having the time / encouragement to work on it. That being said I have no problems recommending Magento, or even ZenCart. But for a Joomla specific solution I would recommend going with a commercial shopping - like redShop.

Sorry I could not be of better help.

Thanks for your reply Joomstrup.

After exploring the functionalities of the virtuemart, I came to understand that It is excellent for small business on web such as book shop, and shops with basic needs.

However when we go for big businesses which involve
  • multiple vendors,
  • price configuration based on shopper groups,
  • Promotional offers,
  • Upsell (Promoting business by showing related products)
  • Automated shipping, (tracking shipping after order) etc.,
I cannot recommend Virtuemart.
