Installs as a native VirtueMart 3.0/2.0 Joomla 2.5 & 3.x Shipping Plugin.
You need to apply to Australian Post for an api key to use the calculator. Simply enter it in the plugin configuration.

Full rewrite for Virtuemart 3.0 & Joomla 3.0 while keeping full backward compatibility for VM2 & Joomla 2.5 - current owners please contact me for an upgrade - a small fee is charged - only nesscesary if you are moving to Joomla 3.x
A heavy recode has eliminated two thirds of the cURL calls to the AusPost server resulting in a significant speed up of the postage returns.
It also as standard prechecks the validity of the requests (postcode, size etc) saving more time and more reliable error checking...

I've used it for one client through two versions of Joomla!/VirtueMart now, and it is fantastic. The first iteration was fairly simple, but John both open to some suggestions for improvement and also to make some paid changes to it.
It's now working in the second iteration (for J2.5) and the advancements that John has made to the module are fantastic. It can now be configured to allow for signature on delivery, insurance etc, which makes it far more usable for a vendor.
John's service is fantastic and the moderate fee he charges for this module is well worth it for all the pain that it saves!
Being a newb who likes to fiddle with settings I managed to get it all set up and then stuff something up playing with the settings.
Support was awesome. My request was replied to within half an hour and subsequent emails answered straight way with easy to understand instructions.
Took a couple of minutes to install and select the appropriate options, the instructions page is simple but covers everything needed (included an override to display zero values which I implemented first go) and when the client later wanted free shipping for selected items, John from GJC was as good as his word and responded within 12 hours (different time zones) with a solution.
I experienced a couple of initial problems due to my own mis-understanding of the installation process and they checked my site within minutes and my module was working as expected.
GJC Web Designs is the best outfit I have dealt with in relation to joomla and Virtuemart and my 5-star rating says it all. Thoroughly recommended
Installed flawlessly, up and running in 5-10 minutes.
I sent a quick email to the author to say thank you, and had a reply within minutes, making me aware of an upcoming update, and an offer of support if I needed any.
Couldn't be happier...
After sales service - exceptional! I had some minor issues with cart display due to a custom one page checkout being used. Emailed questions are answered virtually immediately and sound, comprehensive and easy to follow solutions were provided without cost. Thank you. A great extension and even better service.
Some of the features include: Easy to install as it is a native plugin.
+ You do not have to enter volume information for each product as it has a standard volume organiser
I had first trouble with the extension but John solved my problem in hours.
I recently had a trouble again as the extension was not working beacuse of the Australia Post update. My problem was solved again in hours...
So thank you very much for the great extension.
The added debugging in the code by the developer made it super simple to locate areas of code. Really pleased I purchased this plugin. If you're an Australian developer and need this kind of functionality this is the plugin for you!
