In your VM2 administration menu go to 'Shop' - 'Shippment methods' and (because the list initially is empty) click on "New" in the top menu. Give it at least a name and click on "Save". Then go go the 'Configuration' tab of your new shipment method and enter the details for this shipping method. Short explanations of the fields are in the tooltips which open when you place your mouse pointer over the field labels.

Activate 'Enable Automatic Selected Shipment? ' in Configuration - 'Checkout' tab

If your shipping methods are published and you entered i.e. your homecountry in the shipping method's configuration 'Country' field, it should show up in the cart as soon as the customer either logs in or enters his address. Without this info the cart doesn't know if the customer is located in the U.S. or in i.e China and therefore doesn't display a shipping cost. If you leave the country field in the shipment configuration blank, the shipping methods applies to all countries and should always show up in the cart (provided you didn't set another limitation in the 'shopper group' field).

That doesn't work. Contact info always has to be entered before being able to select a shipping method.

Hi,


I guess you need at least the name, and the email. Set the other shopper fields to not required.

I would like to have a two option radio button with delivery or pickup under the registration page. If customers choose delivery I would like to have shipment cost depending on one of the fields selected on the address registration page. More explanation on this post:

Can someone help?

Yes, this is a must!!

Now we force the users to register and log to see a completed cart showing how much it will cost the shipment. We need something to select shipment in cart or something like other shops where you select your country in a loading page at the homepage so you know how much it cost in the cart.

Hi,

We did not yet implement a "real" one page checkout.
But you can find one here:
