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!

Free shipping not automatically chosen? 28 Jan 2015 15:26 #1

Using Advanced Shipping Rules Plugin on VM 2.6.12, and have a problem making VM automaticly choose shipping, instead of presenting user with a choice to select between shipping methods.

Before installing ASR Plugin, we just had 1 rule but with the plugin, we wish to avoid charging the customer for shipping, if all products in basket is from the same specific product category.

So we implemented the following rule as payment method:
Name=Free shipping; Categories==list(13); Shipping=0

However - this forces the customer to choose between Free shipping and the existing shipping method, where as we just want it to select the Free shipping for the customer.

How do we best achieve this? We cant seem to find any description of this in the documentation and examples on your website.

Kind regards,
Henrik Holm Nielsen ;)

EDIT: We did already select "Enable Automatic Selected Shipment" in configuration, but this made no difference.
