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!

We often have customers requesting the shipping / delivery cost on a per product basis. The customers do not want to go through the process to checkout in order to see this.
Do you have an add-on or plans to add a feature with a pop-up or layer display for shipping calculation that could be placed on the product detail page?

Unfortunately, I have no plans to implement such a functionality (also notice that the plugin in its current form is not even able to handle per-product shipping costs, where each article possibly has a different shipping cost).

Thanks Reinhold.

This functionality would not require a different shipping cost per-product.
We suggest the use of a postcode / country field with a button to lookup the shipping cost.
Is this not possible as a plugin or module within the product details template?

Ah, I see, you want to display the shipping costs for an order that only contains the product the users are currently viewing.
Unfortunately, this is not possible for a shipping plugin, because the shipping plugin always works on the current cart, while you would need to access the product that is offered on the current page, without it being in the cart...
