Finishing Touches needed before website goes live

I've developed a Joomla website for a client and supplied, installed and configured VirtueMart 3.8.8.

The site is ready to go live, but there's a hand-full of tasks that I don't know how to do. So, I'm looking at sub-contracting those tasks out to one of you.

The site is

And this is what my client would like changed:
1) On the individual product details page,

change the wording
"With shipment Orders under $50 flat fee for $0.00
Sales price"


"1) Sales price $5 per pack
2) Orders under $50 flat fee $7.00
3) Orders over $50 free delivery"

2) On the my-cart page,

2a) Hide "SKU" from the order details.

2b) The "invoice" should also show a New Zealand Tax amount. Each product cost of $5 includes 15% tax. The total amount includes 15% GST..... not 15% on top of the $5 product cost.

2c) CLICK "add/edit billing details"
Remove the following fields:
Middle Name
Rename "Zip/Postal Code" to "Postal Code"
Remove all countries except New Zealand (since we only ship to New Zealand)
Mobile Phone

2c) Please replicate the above on the "Add/Edit Shipping Details" (also accessible from the my-cart page).

3) On the "my-cart" page, please tidy the "Selected Shipment" section when an order is OVER $50....
It doesn't need to display "Orders under $50 flat fee"
It doesn't need to display "or change the selected shipment method"
It doesn't need to display "Orders under $50 flat fee"

If this is something you would like to do, please flick me a message or e-mail me



It sounds like making adjustments for developers from someone who can't develop.
Have you already ordered a developer or are you planning to develop your website (yours, because you will then receive money from the client for it) here on the forum?

Thanks Jorgen :)

I m really dummy and don't understud, this post in section commercial jobs, then my post is very bad....

Hi Jorgen,

I'm not sure if I understand your comments and questions, so I'm sorry if I don't answer the way you expect.

I'm a reasonably new website designer (self taught) and don't know how to customise Virtuemart. So, I need some help.
Yes, I am being paid for this job, but I have permission from my client to get help, which my client will pay for. I made it very clear to my client that any changes that require PHP or SQL knowledge will require some third-party help.
I am looking for that help on this forum.

I don't understand this sentence at all: "Have you already ordered a developer or are you planning to develop your website (yours, because you will then receive money from the client for it) here on the forum?"

It is easy to misunderstand each other in a forum and I reached out to Rudolf (Pinochico) and asked him to edit his original post. He added what, in my eyes and what I know about it, sounded like a good excuse for his post.

Rudolf reacted to the post out of context, it looks actually like a work order and in a FREE forum this would be considered unpolite. The thing Rudolf missed is that You posted in the "Commercial Jobs Forum".
I hope this clears things up.


Thanks for writing your excuse to Suited and give me a small mention. But as You see, communication is not easy.

Just a few suggestions which come into my mind:

For the product page you may create a Joomla language override for the language key COM_VIRTUEMART_PRODUCT_SALESPRICE and use the text string 'Price per pack incl. 15% GST'.

For the shipping cost information I would create a new VM custom field of the type string which says something like
'Shipping cost within NZ = $7.00'
'Free shipping for orders over $50.00"
and assign that custom field to the 'addtocart' layout position.

For hiding the sku column in the cart you could create an override of the file \components\com_virtuemart\views\cart\tmpl\default_pricelist.php into the folder ...\templates\mytemplate\html\com_virtuemart\cart and replace the rows responsible for filling the sku column with <td colspan="1">&nbsp;</td>.
Not a very elegant solution, but it should work (I've done that for hiding the discount column). A future version of the VM cart might have selectable columns.

For showing the prices including GST in the cart, select the 'VAT-tax' in the VM configuration.
