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 there, wonderfull plugin! Just what I was searching for.

I have a problem and I can't figure it out by the documentation:

I have 2 rules, with ZIP4 an Weight.



I have no countries in my login form. So visible for all. The weight is in kg.
When I select a zipcode 3911, it gives me 2 other rules for the weights. That works fine.

But when I select a zipcode other then 3911, it gives me both the rules, not calculating the order weight in the card. I have an article of 50 gramms and also checked more articles more the a kilo, and it gives me always both rules.

I also get no shipping costs in my card.

What an I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!

Do you have those rules written on three separate lines or on one line? The plugin needs all conditions and the shipping costs to be in the same line:
0.01<=Weight<=0.1; ZIP4!=3911; Shipping=3.75
0.11<=Weight<=1; ZIP4!=3911; Shipping=5.75

That would explain all the issues you are experiencing.

Hi Reinhold,

Thanks for the reply.
That worked partial for me.

The zipcode is now working, but the weight isn't.

I have all set weights in gramms, but with the rule you gave me, it always takes the highest shipping costs.

I have an article of 50 gramms, and set the lowest costs as
1<=Weight<=100; ZIP4!=3911; Shipping=3.75 but it takes the other one of 101 gramms and more.

Can you help me out?
