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!

TOPIC: [SOLVED] Selected Category is free shipping

Selected Category is free shipping 25 Aug 2015 14:32 #1

Hi,

Thanks for the support last time, I have another question.

I used these rules;
articles==1; Shipping=2
articles==2; 4
articles==3; 6

I added a new category for free shipping, it can also work together, however if the buyer bought an item from the category with $2 shipping and bought another product from the category(249) free shipping. the total shipping cost is $4. The total shipping must be $2 only because 1 item is free shipping.

How to exclude the category 249 from all the rules I am using even the shoppers check out together?

Thank you for kind support.

Best Regards,
Carlota

Dear Carlota,
If I understand you correctly, your shipping cost structure is as follows:
- All articles are 2$ shipping costs per article,
- except articles from category 249, which are free

For this to work, you need the advanced version of the plugin, because we need mathematical expressions to achieve the exception (i.e. to calculate the number of articles that get paid shipping).
I would then implement it with these rules:
Variable=shippingArticles; Value=Articles - evaluate_for_categories(Articles, 249)
Shipping=2*ShippingArticles

Hi Reinhold,

Thank you for your help.

The rules are working fine.
Variable=shippingArticles; Value=Articles - evaluate_for_categories(Articles, 249)
Shipping=2*ShippingArticles

With this, may I know how to add a name free shipping beside the tittle, if buyers choose only with this categories 249?
It only shows standard shipping, no other info and may confused to shoppers.

Dear Carlota,
You can prepend a rule that handles free shipping if only category 249 is ordered:
Name="Free Shipping"; contains_only(categories, 249); Shipping=0
Variable=shippingArticles; Value=Articles - evaluate_for_categories(Articles, 249)
Shipping=2*ShippingArticles

This first rule (even though not neccessary for the calculation of the shipping costs) handles the case when only category 249 is in the cart, otherwise the old logic is applied.

Best regards,
Reinhold
