Category Shipping - Shipping cost based on category
« on: September 27, 2012, 11:29:38 am »
Dear all,

Today, I just released a great shipping plugin for Virtuemart 2.x called Category Shipping. It allows you to set up shipping cost per category. When users check out products, it will calculate and show total shipping cost based on categories that products in the cart are belong to.

You can check it out here: http://joomdonation.com/plugins/category-shipping.html

Example (Category Name/Shipping Cost):
+ Hand Tools: $4.5
+ Power Tools: $7
+ Garden Tools: $9

On checkout processing:
+ If users purchase products which are belong to Hand Tools and Power Tools categories, then Shipping Cost is $4.5 + $7 = $11.5
+ If users purchase products which are belong to Power Tools and Garden Tools categories, then Shipping Cost is $7 + $9 = $16
+ If users purchase products which are belong to all these 3 categories, then Shipping Cost is $4.5 + $7 + $9 = $20.5



The Category Shipping method also supports some other options:
+ Select countries to apply this shipping method
+ Enter package fee
+ Select tax rule to apply for shipping cost
+ Use maximum category cost option, if you choose Yes, then only maximum category cost is applied as shipping cost.

Many my clients asked for this shipping method and I decided to create it. I hope that you will like it.

Hi all,
Today, I just updated the Category Shipping extension to 1.5.1 version with 2 options are added:

1. Include Duplicated Categories (Yes/No): Choose Yes means that calculating shipping cost for a category can be duplidated. Example: If user purchases 2 different products which are belong to a category, then shipping cost for that category will be calculated twice.

2. Include Duplicated Products (Yes/No): Choose Yes means that calculating shipping cost for a product can be duplicated. Example: If user purchases a product with amount is 2, then shipping cost for the category that that product is belong to will be calculated twice.

These 2 new options will make it work more flexible.

Thank you!
Sincerely, Giang

This looks like a fantastic plugin!
Please would you confirm that if my client wanted to offer free shipping to one of the categories, that this plugin would work.

Hi GJC, where can I find your shipping per product extension? I'm very interested to find out more about it, as I will need this as well for certain (bulkier) products.

Hi, the plug-in Category Shipping has worked great in VM2. It still seems to work fine in VM3 as well. But for some reason I am not finding the definition of the categories anymore (it was something like 253 = 1.80, ie category = price). Am I getting senile or does this simply not work anymore under the configuration tab? Any updates for J3/VM3 available please?

Many thanks and regards,

Dan
