26.08.2014
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

24.04.2014
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...

This is all selectable in the plugin configuration.

Functionality

Domestic and international letter and parcel rates.

Ease of use

Easy to configure - works great.

Support

Excellent service - it was 1.30 am where the developer was located and he responded to my questions. Thanks John (...get more sleep :P)

Value for money

The small upgrade fee for the new VM3 version is well worth the cost considering the development time required for the upgrade.

I used this to: Calculating Australia Post shipping rates for Virtuemart stores - a must have for any Australian Virtuemart Store.

Does exactly what I need


Posted on 18 August 2014

Always been a solid plugin.

Function has become much more extensive in recent versions. Plenty of extra goodies on top of the standard use.

Support is also on point & efficient.


So very easy to install! Config options available are awesome. Had a problem contacted John, I got a speedy reply and John nicely pointed out the issue was with another third party plugin. Result was no issue with his plugin. His support service is brilliant.


If you have an Australian-based VM shop and you use Aus Post, this module is essential.



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!


Great service

Top product and easy to install.

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.


Very simple and easy to use plugin and most importantly even after 4 months of purchasing the product I send support request to the developer and got the response within minutes like I just purchased the product right now.


This is a fantastic extension and so simple to configure, documentation is well written and easy to follow and the customer service is excellent. I requested the addition of ‘international registered post’ and it was done within hours. Thanks to John, the developer for his work on this plug in.


The VM auspost shipping plugin is so easy to set up and just works. The support is second to none and John goes all out to show you what the problem was with screen shots and diagrams. Simply the very best. Thank you so much.


Buy with confidence you will not be disappointed. Great company, and excellent service. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I own three of their products and all get 5 Stars!


Highly Recommended

5 star plugin and support. Well worth the price and now makes my online store check out with shipping and calculating costs such a breeze.



Thanks for this wonderful software.

This is an integration of the TaxCloud USA taxes service into Virtuemart. As they say on their website, "TaxCloud is a the internet's only free sales tax processing service". Our integration is a standard Joomla Plugin with no core hacks. After enabling the plugin one simple configuration in the Virtuemart 2.0 Taxes & Calculation Rules is all that's necessary. Address verification with the USPS is included so if the address cannot be found the user is redirected back to their address management to correct the error. You are required to register with https://taxcloud.net/ to receive an account id and key. For the address verification a registration with the USPS is also required to receive your api id number. Both are completely free. Full information is available here: http://www.gjcwebdesign.com/eximg/taxcloud/GJCVirtuemarttaxcloud_handbook.pdf This provides full tax management for your USA taxes - a free service from TaxCloud!

A Joomla 2.5/J3.x Plugin to insert the rel="nofollow" & target="_blank" attributes only within outgoing links. Local site links are untouched. The "nofollow" is an HTML attribute value used to instruct some search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target's ranking in the search engine's index. If the page is from a section or category enabled via the parameters the plugin is parsed unless the page id is specifically excluded.

++++++ UPDATE 21.05.2014 ++++++++++++ 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 2.6 Joomla 2.5 Shipping Module. Install the Joomla 2.5 Plugin by using the standard Joomla installer for the file vm2.0ego_shipping.zip. The module calculates in real time the shipping price from e-go considering the following parameters - Store Owner Postcode Customer Postcode Quantity Weight (kilo) Length (centimeter) Height (centimeter) Depth (centimeter) Curl needs to be enabled Also tested working on VM1.5.26/VM2.0 but contact me for the J1.5 language file.

With a standard Virtuemart 2.0 install it is quite possible for a single item (i.e. an item with a stock level of 1) to be ordered multiple times by different customers because no stock level is adjusted until the item is fully checked out. Just adding to your cart doesn't prevent other customers from also adding it to their cart and successfully checking out - not good if you are running a shop that sells one off items! Our plugin and template adjustments solve this problem fully - as soon as an item with a stock level of 1 is added to a cart it is 'locked' i.e. other visitors are prevented from adding it to their cart until the item is 'released' by manually being removed from the cart or the cart session of the 'buyer' running out and our plugin then releasing it. If the item is successfully checked out then the stock falls to 0 so it then can not be ordered. Ideal for VM sites for art & handicraft works where only 1 item exists.

This is the VirtueMart 2.0 Product Review Component that provides an 'Amazon' like product review. In other words users can only review products that they have actually bought. The Admin can of course add new reviews and moderate/edit existing reviews. At the moment any VirtueMart registered user can review any product whether they have bought it or not. The package can also handle "one off" products as it stores each purchased products details and user information to a separate component which the administrator has full control over. Even if the product is later deleted from VM there record is still kept along with the image in the VMReview component. It can also be set up to send review reminder emails to the purchaser after a set period of time.

This is the Virtuemart 2.0 Radius Shipping Plugin that makes real time distance calculations between the Vendors address and the customer and returns calculated shipping costs to the cart. This is ideal for business or more "deliver" than "ship" .. e.g. restaurants, florists, companies selling services that require travel time and distance to be calculated etc. The plugin has a wide range of configurations to suit just about every shipping schema you can come up with - if not we can extend it for you for a very reasonable price. The distance is calculated either from the VM Vendor address or a pre-configured address in the Shipping method administration. It is calculated via the Google Maps v3 api and has full feedback for the customer so they can see what address the api has found and if necessary correct it. You can read lots more about it from our http://www.gjcwebdesign.com/eximg/radiusshipping/GJCRadiusShippingVirtuemart2.pdf.
