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!

I use the shipping by rules plugin. So far so good - working well!

But I have 1 problem:
When select a certain shipment method defined by rules, I can still select "Pay in the shop".
Thats not good! Customers can order and get delivered products by no payment at all.

Maybe this is not possible within this plugin, because its just handling the shipment and not the payment methods?

Is there any solution to fix this? Maybe another way? I search the forums well, but found no answers yet!

Can you help me out? I guess this is an issue for a lot of shops!
Thanks in advance!

I completely understand your problem. However, unfortunately, VirtueMart itself does not provide any way to make the offered payment methods depend on the choice of the shipping method (or the other way round). All shipping and payment plugins are just called by VirtueMart, but VirtueMart itself is hardcoded to always show all possible methods, independent of the particular choice of the shipping :(

Hi Reinhold,

I solved this problem by buying an one page checkout module.

This Ajax driven cart has rules to include or exclude payment methodes based on shipping selection.

So my problem is solved!

Thanks for the update and your solution! Would you mind sharing with my other users which OPC module solved your problems?

I bought the One page checkout from rupostel.com

Very good component, very customisable. You can for instance disable some payment options by rules for certain shipping methods.

It's Ajax driven, so updates on the fly.
