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!

Excluding products from shipping cost 01 Dec 2013 13:36 #1

I'm using the standard version of the plugin and it works very well, except that I can not seem to exclude Gift Cards from shipping costs.

My rules are the following

Name=Free shipping above $500; 500<= Amount; 0
articles==1; Shipping=10
articles==2; 15
articles==3; 20
articles==4; 25
articles==5; 30
articles==6; 35
articles==7; 40
articles==8; 45
articles==9; 50

This works well. However, now I want to sell Gift Cards in the shop. Gift Cards naturally should not have any shipping cost attached as they are sent electronically.

How do I exclude the Gift Cards from shipping cost?

Thank you.

Problem solved.

While it's not possible to handle individual products, as a possible workaround one can (ab)use the weight and assign a weight of 1 to all products except gift cards, which get a weight of 0. The total Weight of the order will then be exactly equal to the number of articles sans gift cards.
