Shipping by Rules for VirtueMart

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Plugin development ceased, all plugins made available freely (GPL)

With great sadness we have to announce that we are ceasing development of all our VirtueMart, WooCommerce and Joomla plugins. Effective immediately, all our plugins -- even those that were paid downloads -- are made available for free from our homepage (GPL license still applies), but we cannot and will not provide any support anymore.

It has been a great pleasure to be part of the thriving development communities of VirtueMart as well as WooCommerce. However, during the last year it became painstakingly clear that in addition to a full-time job, a young family and several other time-consuming hobbies at professional level (like being a professional singer) the plugin development and the support that it requires is not sustainable and is taking its toll. It has been an honor, but it is now time to say good bye!

I buy your plugin Advanced Shipping by Rules Plugin for VirtueMart 2 for an eshop but I want information about my problem.

I have one Country for shipment , only Greece.
I have 3 categories of many products ( Bathroom id=1 , Kitchen id=2, Beds id=3)
I have 2 towns to send the products ( Athens postal code:45001 – 45135, Thessaloniki postal code 62101 – 62123)
I want with postal code and not for town because I have problem and send products only to some addresses and not everywhere in town.

Also when user buy 3 products from same or different category the shipping cost i want to calculate x 3

The cost price is in the table

Bathroom Kitchen Beds

Athens 5€ 7€ 9€
Thessaloniki 15€ 20€ 25€

Can I do this with your extension? How can I do this? Please help me.

You can handle destinations by postal code with the ZIP variable.

I have not quite understood how multiple articles should be handled. How shall the shipping costs be calculated, if the customer for example orders 2 articles from the Kitchen category and three articles from the Beds category?

What is not possible with the plugin is determine how many articles of a given category are ordered. You can only check whether articles from a certain category are ordered, but not how many.

Best regards,
