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!

Vendors based Shipping Rule - variations issue 27 Jan 2018 09:17 #1

I have used the Advanced version to count number of Vendors in an order using the following rule, which worked fine so far.
Name="20 per vendor"; Shipping=20*length(VendorIDs)

However, whenever there is a variation item in the list of products in the order, even it is from the same vendor, it is counted as another vendor.

Following explains the example:

Items in the cart:
1- Product A (Vendor X)
2- Product B - Variation 1 (Vendor X)

Based on the rule I use above, it should count 1 vendor cost = 20
However, currently the shipping is calculated 2x20 = 40 (2 vendors)

How can I ensure than Variations' vendors are counted correctly?

Dear Ahmad,
Am I correct assuming that you use the "WC vendors" plugin for your multi-vendor shop? Thanks to your report we looked at variations in combination with WC vendors and it appears that WC vendors handled variations differently from ordinary products. We have implemented a fix for this (basically, added a check whether the current product is a variation and if that is the case, use the parent product to derive the vendor). That fix will be available in the next release 2.0.4

Best regards,
