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,

I need to be able set the shipping cost as 'Custom Shipping Quote',

Then I can email the customer directly after the order is complete.

Can this be done? I do not mind overriding the plugins code if needs be.

Dear Steve,
Unfortunately, VirtueMart requires a shipping cost to finish the order. So it is NOT possible to set a string as shipping costs. There is nothing a plugin can do about this. A plugin can only return a numeric value for shipping, or it cannot offer any shipping. Providing a shipping method and letting the user select it without giving an explicit shipping cost is NOT possible in VirtueMart.

Best regards,
