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!

virtuemart version - 2.0
joomla version - 2.5

I have put the plugin and integrated the logic for shipping it works fine when i logic to the admin end and see the cart from the admin end - when you browse to he product and click on the link at the top, if we add this product and test everything is fine.

however when i browse to he site and do the same the cart is not picking up the weight logic as defined in the admin end from this component

i have set the plugin to access - registered member - not working, public access - not working, what does special access do?

why is it that the admin can see the logic working while the customers cannot see the weight logic working

what am i missing in terms of setup or configuration or what else is left in not sure what i am doing wrong all replies are highly appreciated

Do I understand you correctly that for anonymous users, the shipping method is not offered at all?
Have you set any shopper group for the shipping method (on the first tab of the shipping method, where you can enter its name etc.)?

The plugin (as Joomla plugin) should be set to "Public", and the Shopper Group in the Virtuemart shipment methods configuration should probably be left empty (i.e. there is no restriction by shopper group and the method is offered to all your users, whether registered or anonymous).

there is no shopper group and plugin is set "Public".
we have the the shipping rate for each drop down like this


quantity 50PCS---2kg
quantity 100PCS---4kg
quantity 200PCS--6kg
quantity 500PCS---8kg

and the rule below

Name=Shipping for less then 2 kg; Weight<=2; Shipping=6.10
Name=Shipping for less then 5 kg; 2<Weight<=5; Shipping=9
Name=Shipping for less then 7 kg; 5<Weight<=7; Shipping=20
Name=Shipping for less then 10 kg; 7<Weight<=10; Shipping=30
Name=Shipping for less then 15 kg; 10<Weight<=15; Shipping=40
Name=Shipping for less then 20 kg; 15<Weight<=20; Shipping=50

if we select 50PCS it show Shipping=6.10 that is right/correct
but when we select 100PCS or any other the 50PCS then it only show the "Shipping=6.10"
why this is happening?

below is the link form for the site where we can change the quantity and then click on "add to cart"
where the shipping rate/price is not showing


please provide some feedback

How do you implement the dropdown boxes?
I guess that's an integral part to reproduce the problem.

Okay, I debugged the problem and was able to reproduce on demo.kainhofer.com using the stockable custom field plugin. It appears to be a VirtueMart bug that the child products will always use the dimensions of the parent product and not the weight assigned to the child product.

I have contacted the other VM core developers, but I have no idea when or if a fix will be available in the near future.

See the following thread in VirtueMart's user forums:

It appears that the fix will be available in the upcoming Virtuemart 2.0.24d. For all earlier versions, the fixed files for the stockable plugin are attached to that thread and need to be uploaded to your server manually.
