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!

The plugin is great. Perhaps it would be useful to sort by function "List Order". Thanks.

You mean using the "List Order" to sort the available shipping methods in the selection page in the cart? Yes, I totally agree, but that's a VirtueMart bug that it didn't respect the List Order. I sent a patch to Milbo, so it will probably appear in some future VM version.

Okay, I have now talked to the VM developers. The sorting of the shipping and payment methods in the cart is determined not by the List Order, but by the plugin order in the Joomla plugin setup. The List Order is only used to sort different methods from the same plugin. So if you use multiple methods of the shipping by rules plugin, then you can use the list order to sort them, but if the plugin comes after e.g. the PayPal plugin in Joomla's plugin setup, then a PayPal method will always be shown before the shipping by rules method. To change it, you need to go to Joomla's plugin manager and change the ordering of the vmshipment plugins there...
