In their "wisdom" e-go have released a new api (v2) which totally breaks the one they have had for at least 5 years - no backward compatibility at all!!!!
The new api requires suburbs - written/spelt EXACTLY as they require as well as postcodes - a perfect formula for disaster...
I have written a new plugin for this but of course it relies on the client knowing and spelling his/her suburb correctly. You need to add a new compulsary shopper field in your registration/billing and shipping VM forms.
Contact me with your purchase details and I will send you this updated copy.
This isn't of course ideal so I have developed a template over ride and system plugin for the address form of VM to make use of a suburb api that e-go have made available. There will have to be a charge for this as it is a large coding effort - any complaints please direct them to e-go for having the arrogance to completely change their api with no backward compatibility and hugely additional complications. Contact me if you require this.
We are happy to announce the VirtueMart 2.0 e-go "Australia's #1 Cheap Courier & Freight Service" that fully integrates and shows real time quotations based on vendor and customer postcodes in the checkout process.
Installs as a native VirtueMart 2.0 Joomla 2.5 Shipping Module.
Install the Joomla 2.5 Plugin by using the standard Joomla installer for the file vm2.0_e_go_shipping.zip.
The module calculates in real time the shipping price from e-go considering the following parameters -

Also tested working on VM1.5.26/VM2.0 but contact me for the J1.5 language file.
