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!

Shipping cost and Wc vendors 30 Mar 2017 15:41 #1

Dear Reinhold,

I use your advanced plugin on my marketplace (woocommerce/wc vendors)
I configure your plugin to respect the delivery rules of my sellers.

I correctly calculate the shipping cost depending on the rules of each vendor.
Unfortunately, this shipping cost does not appear in the e-mail notification to the vendor and in the calculation of the commission (the shipping cost is fully paid to the vendor).

It looks like the Shipping by Rules for WooCommerce plugin record the shipping cost of the order in a place different from the one expected par "WC Vendor". Am I right?

Do you have a solution to solve this problem which gives the vendor the right info on his e-mail notification and that allow me to fully automate the payment of commission (I have to pay the commission for each order manually).

Many thanks in advance.

Dear Vedia,
Our shipping plugin uses the default interface provided by WooCommerce to handle shipping costs. In particular, we simply implement the calculate_shipping method of the WC_Shipping_Method - derived class. This is the default way that any plugin uses to return shipping offered costs back to WooCommerce. This method is called by WC during the checkout process before the shipping costs are offered to the customer. After that, our plugin is not involved at all any more. From a WC-perspective, our plugin behaves exactly like e.g. the flat rate method.

I just tested WC Vendor with a standard Flat Rate shipping rate, and there the shipping subtotal of each vendor is 0.00 as well. So, to me it looks like WooCommerce / WC Vendor is in general not including any shipping costs in the notifications to the vendor.

Best regards,
