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!

Dear velvys,
There is no default way to let shipping depend on custom fields of the products in the cart.

The shipping by rules plugins are, however, flexible enough so they can be extended by custom plugins. This needs some PHP software development / coding, based on the free template that can be downloaded at:

That page also contains the API documentation that a PHP developer needs to develop such a plugin.

One user who created his own extension that accesses the custom fields made a post here in the forum, which should give you or your PHP developer a very good idea / receipe for implementint it:

Best regards,
