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!

Hi Reinhold,

Is there a formule to give the customer a discount of 5% by an order of a total amount of € 500,-?

If it is possible could you give it to me?

Thanks and regards,

Discounts should proably not be handled through shipping plugins, but rather through calculation plugins. If you still want to go the route through the shipping costs, you can do it with a rule like:
Name=5% discount as shipping cost; Amount>500; Shipping=-0.05*Amount 

But please note that this negative shipping cost is listed in the invoice as "shipping" and not as a discount, so you might run into legal trouble with bookkeeping.

Best regards,
