Shipping options
« on: October 23, 2015, 16:52:56 pm »

We do currently have the shipping rates options for non-mainland deliveries, and want to keep that.

Am I able to add further shipping options, either in the Shipping section, or somewhere in the checkout process?
I want to add a check box so a customer can select if they want to be notified of delivery by email/phone/none
Plus, I would like a box for options where to leave the parcel if they are not home.

VirtueMart 1.1.4
Joomla! 1.0.15

Many Thanks

Firstly, upgrade to the newest Joomla and Virtuemart to get the best out of it.

Theres a textarea at the end of the checkout (both your version and newer virtuemart) that lets user give notes. Ask them to leave anything of use like where to leave items on there.

Useful delivery plugin by postcode -
Or by mileage -

As for the checkbox thing someone else might know a plugin for that.
