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!

The way I had my shipping rules set up it would return NoShipping if less than 3 items were in the cart. This then resulted in woocommerce giving their No Shipping Method Available error message, which I had code to change to "3 items or more required for delivery".
But now the shipping field is just blank, the customer has no idea why there is no shipping available.
I realise I can enter an error in the shipping rules, but this puts an error at the top of the page which isn't always visible, I preferred having the information in the actual shipping field.
Was there something in the latest release that caused this? Is there a way around it please?

Dear fosteris,
As far as I can see, there was no particular change in our latest releases that would cause a significant change.

Our plugin does not actually mess with how WooCommerce handles shipping rates and how they are displayed. WooCommercy simply queries all shipping plugins through a dedicated function of the shipping method class. If a plugin returns a shipping rate, it will be offered, if the plugin does not offer a rate, it will not be offered. The decision how to display the available shipping rates (and how to display the case when no rates are available) is completely up to WooCommerce and to the template that you use. So, I would guess that there was either a change in WooCommerce itself, or another third-party plugin tries to mess with those parts of WooCommerce.

Best regards,
