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!

Using the Shipping by Rules plugin for Woocommerce, is it possible to define shipping costs on a per vendor basis?

i.e. Shipping fee is $5 per vendor. The customer buys multiple products from Vendor A and then multiple products from Vendor B. On checkout this will show a $10 shipping fee ($5 per vendor x 2 vendors).

So far I've only encountered per product shipping support, not per vendor. But if this is possible with your plugin that would be fantastic. Thank you!

Dear LeemoSupreemo,
Support for shipping costs per vendor is only limited in our plugin. However, if your shipping cost structure is really as simple as "5$ for each vendor in the cart", then it can be easily achieved:

Best regards,

PS: This requires the paid version of the plugin, as the free plugin does not contain the code to evaluate any mathematical expressions...

Hi Reinhold

I just bought the plugin, exactly for this specific case. Unfortunately, the following error message appeared:

Evaluation yields unknown value while evaluating rule part 'Vendors'.

My setup:
WordPress Version 4.8.1
WooCommerce Version 3.1.2
WooCommerce Advanced Shipping By Rules Version 2.0
WooCommerce Product Vendors Version 2.0.40

Thanks for your help!

Best, Philipp

Hello Reinhold,

Since we're launching next week, my issue is somewhat pressing.

We’re charging a fixed fee per vendor (40) and a fixed fee for every article (20) in the cart.

Here’s what I came up with:

As I explained above, the following error message keeps appearing:
Evaluation yields unknown value while evaluating rule part 'Vendors

What do you think?

Dear Philipp,
Unfortunately, WooCommerce does not have a proper developer program, so I don't always have access to the latest version of WC Product Vendors. The latest version that I was able to test was WC Product Vendors 1.2.3 (just tested a minute ago, and the shipping was properly including the length of the vendors list). Apparently WooThemes must have changed something in the plugin in an incompatible way, so our plugin broke. As I said, I don't have a copy of the latest version, so I can't debug or fix the problem...

Shall I refund your order? Alternatively, if you can provide me with a copy of WooCommerce Product Vendors, I can check whether I can quickly spot a fix...

Best regards,

Dear Philipp,
Thank you for providing a copy of the plugin. WooThemes indeed changed the API of their plugin, so I had to update our plugin to be compatible with the product vendors plugin >=2.0, too.

Please update our plugin to the latest version 2.0.2, which should contain the fix and properly make the Vendors variable available.

Best regards,

PS: You might need to manually check for an update in the WordPress plugin page, as the automatic version check for updates runs only twice a day.
