old VM2 site with VM Shipment V3 plugin

which exact plugin are you referring to?

I know the VM1.1 thing that basically had a table that the rates were looked up from for each sku

e.g.
`id` int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, ".
         "`product_sku` varchar(64) NOT NULL, " .
         "`base_amount` decimal(10,2) NOT NULL, ".
         "`quantity` int NOT NULL, " .
         "`additional_charge` decimal(10,2) NOT NULL,

was there a vm2 version?

There seems to be a few floating around .. e.g.  http://attwebdev.com/att_projects/vms/documentation/  and one from http://www.Omkarsoft.com (Virtuemart VM Shipping v3 Component)  -- but neither are J3/VM3 - both say they will not be upgrading

Contact me if you would like to discuss the possibilities..  :)

Hey GJC Web Design,

So what is your proposal for developing such a plugin compliant with JM3/VM3 ?

well .. you haven't answered my question..  which one of the earlier ext. are you referring to?

If there is enough interest then I would think about upgrading and selling

I contacted the original developer of the original VM Shipping Module over the summer; and he said he could do a Virtuemart 3 version, which would also add the same GUI for foreign shipping as it did for domestic, for $300.  That was well outside my budget to spend; however the original developer was willing to be flexible on the price.

I'm open to options, but in terms of financial commitments, I'm limited.  I would need to run any costs past my client, and the amount would need to be fairly nominal.  This is where I've been searching for alternatives, like adapting the shopper group to define the distinction between shopper countries; and then just building the shipping prices into the final sale price....

I came up with a work around for this, though there's one aspect I still need to address, if anyone has any thoughts.  Under Tax & Calculation Rules, I created a new Tax rule for each shipping amount. For each rule I set the "Type of Arithmetic Operation" to Tax per product and then set the value to the amount I wanted that rule for; and gave an descriptive name for what it is - the tax rule for shipping rate of $6 was called $6 Shipping, the $10 one was $10 shipping and so on; you can use whatever convention you want.  You then go in to each product and from the drop down menu next to base price you select the rule you want  applied to each product for shipping.
The next step is a hack of the code.

In /components/com_virtuemart/language/en-GB/en-GB.com_virtuemart.ini

Find
Code: [Select]
COM_VIRTUEMART_CART_SUBTOTAL_TAX_AMOUNT="Tax"Change only the part in quotation marks ("Tax") whatever you want the column to say, "Shipping" or "S&H", etc. Make sure whatever you want to change the text to appears inside the quotes.

Also find
Code: [Select]
COM_VIRTUEMART_PRODUCT_TAX_AMOUNT="Tax amount: "Edit the text in the quotes here as well. Where the first one is the column that appears in the shopping cart, this one appears in certain instances, like as part of the short description when listed by category. 

There are other lines in this file with labeling lines referring to tax that you may or may not need to change, depending on what you what turned on to appear in the cart; so you should do a word search for the word tax, and using use your discretion whether or not to change it.  I may likely go back through and do that too, just to be on the safe side.
And of course, save changes and re-upload, or however you chose to edit those types of files.
Done this way, each product ends up showing it's own shipping total separately, which I'm okay with; though I am going to look further into at what point it will show the grand total of the "shipping" (formerly tax) amount, and the product prices together; which it hasn't done yet, despite the options to show that being enabled.

The final part to this I just need to resolve, is to "turn off" the original shipment method line(s); so that they are neither necessary or displayed.  I don't want to just create a $0 shipping method, as that would be confusing, obviously. This is where, if anyone knows how to do that, it'd pretty much be set and ready to go.

I'm sure the weight based shipping method could be edited and adapted as an alternative way of applying tax, if that were needed in addition to flat shipping.
What would be even better would be to find a way of copying all the necessary code, et al, for the Tax & Calculation Rules, and find a way to rename it and incorporate the basic functions as a shipping method, adding that extra drop down box too, to each product, configuring shipping that way.  Perhaps someone involved with the Virtuemart project would know where all of that would be, and how that would work; and ideally wouldn't be as huge of undertaking as it might be for others...

Use the native Joomla Language over ride system

Has anybody ever created or found one of these by sku shipping plugins? We are revisiting to update and would still like to find one.

So this doesn't install properly, so I moved the folder into the VM plugins directory on the server. I had joomla do a "Discover" and complete the installation. I can create a new Shipping Method in VM with Proship, but none of the changes I make to the configuration get saved. It just reverts back to all empty fields. If this worked it would be quite useful.

serious?

THEN: set your shipping rate 1 to   1-50000   lbs       $1 per pound.

THEN:
IN the product in the weight field , add the dollars you want to charge

this was actually 1 of the oldest methods to charge shipping per product

Hello

We would like to inform you that we have updated our Joomla Virtuemart Shipping Cost Per Product "https://store.webkul.com/Joomla-Virtuemart-Custom-Shipping-Cost-Per-Product.html". Cost calculations updated in case of multiple products in cart. Now cost will be calculated considering each product as an individual cost/product, this condition was missing previously.


Thank you

Regards
Webkul
