Shipping By Rules for WooCommerce

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 have used some variables in the shipping rules which were working before the last Woocommerce update. but with the latest Woocommerce update, the rules are not working and also your shipping rules plugin option is not appearing under the zone settings. What should I do?

Dear RachelWalsh,
Which versions of our plugin, WooCommerce, WordPress and PHP do you use on your server?

Also, what do you mean by "the rules are not working" exactly?
If you add a debug shipping method as outlined in open-tools.net/documentation/advanced-sh...merce.html#debugging, do you see all available variables printed out? If so, the plugin is correctly called, but somehow the rules are not properly evaluated. If the list of variables is not even printed, then the plugin is never even called.

What are the rules that have been working before but stopped working with the latest WC update?

The shipping by rules plugin has not been moved to the new shipping zones functionality, as it implements its own country zones, which more or less duplicates the shipping zones functionality. You can configure the Shipping by Rules plugin just like before using the "Shipping by Rules" tab in the shipping section of the configuration.
We are evaluating whether we should drop our different country zones and switch over to the shipping zones (with the disadvantage that you cannot see all rules for all zones on one page for copy-n-paste).

Best regards,
