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!

Hello, i'd like to know how and if it's possible to have free shipping for the purchase of a certain amount of products belonging to the same type.

Example: If the customer purchases more than 10 products of a certain manufacturer shipping is free

Unfortunately, with the plugin it is currently not possible to distinguish products. All you have available is the total number or products and the total number of items in the order. If you have 12 items and 2 products, you can't tell in the rules whether the items are split as 6+6 or as 11+1 or 2+10 between the two products.

So, your shiping costs calculated with my plugin can only depend on the total number of items and products in the order, but not in the way you request it.
