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!

The text might be hard to read, so I'm uploading the shipping rates as an image...

Such a shipping cost structure is easily possible with the plugin. You actually have three separate shipping methods (i.e. you need to set up three shipping methods, all of them using the shipping by rules type):

Method 1 ("1-5 Business Day Delivery"):
Country: USA
Amount<=25; Shipping=5.95
25<Amount<=50; Shipping=8.95
50<Amount<=75; Shipping=10.95
.... (please continue yourself)

Method 2 ("3 Business Day Guaranteed"):
Country: USA only
Name="Alaska has a surcharge"; state2=="AK"; ExtraShippingCharge=10
Name="Hawaii has a surcharge"; state2=="HI"; ExtraShippingCharge=10

Amount<=25; Shipping=15.95
25<Amount<=50; Shipping=18.95
50<Amount<=75; Shipping=20.95
.... (please continue yourself)

Method 3 should now be obvious (exactly the same as Method 2, just with higher costs).

Please note that the ExtraShippingCharge feature needs at least the version 4.99 of the plugin. In earlier versions of the plugin you would need to define a custom variable and add that to all shipping costs.

That is exactly what I needed. I have version 4.3, so will need to check out the other version or play with the additional fee for Hawaii and Alaska. Thank you very much!
