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!

I'm new to this forum and have checked for a solution without luck. I'm hoping someone can help.
I've setup the post code ranges in the 'shipping methods' to determine the cost of the delivery for a 1 product delivery, for each postcode range.
I have given each product a 1kg weight.
So if sent to Melbourne (post code 3000) it will cost $15 for a single product.
Can I set a rule to add shipping amounts based on the shipping 'Post Code' + 100% addition for each product?
So the maths would be as follows:
$15 to postcode 3000 for 1 product.
$30 to postcode 3000 for 2 products.
$45 to postcode 3000 for 3 products.
Is this how it works? And what would be an example of the formula to make it function.
I purchased the Advanced Rules Plug In and am hoping I can save a lot of time.
Thank you in advance for any feedback that is out there.

Dear Clint,
If I understand you correctly, you want to charge $15 for each article, i.e. the shipping cost for Melbourne should be 15*Nr.of Articles. That can be implemented as:
ZIP==3000; Shipping=15*Articles

For other post codes you can add further rules. If you have different shipping costs for different categories, things are a little trickier, but can still be done (there are several such requests here in the forum).

Best regards,
