Introduction

Virtuemart Shipping

VirtueMart 3.0/2.0 Shipping Module/Plugin that allows a very simple configuration of all a countries Postcode - ZIP code areas in one method.
You do not need multiple shipping methods for every Postcode - ZIP code area PLUS it works perfectly with Alpha/Numeric codes as in the UK and Canada.

  • Get this

Now fully upgraded for Virtuemart 3 and Joomla 3.x - backward compatible for VM2.6.x and Joomla 2.5

Installs as a native VirtueMart 3.0/2.0 Joomla 3.x/2.5 Shipping Plugin.

You can download the full instruction PDF here: http://www.gjcwebdesign.com/eximg/postcodeshipping/GJCPostcodeShippingVirtuemart_3.pdf

Has been tested on: USA ZIP Codes, UK Postcodes, Canadian Postcodes, French Postcodes, German Postcodes (PLZ), Australian Postcodes

Works with all country Postcode - ZIP Code system. Simple config - a comma separated list in the text area.
The format is:
Name,PostcodePostcodePostcode,BasePrice,PriceMultiplier,Trigger,PriceFree
Each zone is on a new line.

A Canadian example would be:
Territories,XY,20,0.20,200.00,300.00
Canadian Provinces,A
BCEGHJPRSTV,15,0.15,150.00,300.00
Southern Ontario,KLM*N,10,0.10,100.00,150.00

Can be up to 4 digits as the postcode matching loops through 4 levels..

UK example for Central London Congestion Charge Area:(shortened but you get the idea)

CentralLondon,E16E17EC1A1EC1A2EC1A4EC1A7EC1A9EC504EC509WC2B6WC2E7WC2E8WC2E9*WC2H0,8.00,0.30,100,300,00

Each Postcode Area in each Zone should be separated by an asterisk. The Postcode is checked in 4 steps to 4 digits so entries such as Y,Y1,Y1A and Y1A1 are valid.

BasePrice: Fixed fee - can be used in conjunction with the 'Up To Weight' condition setting an upper limit
PriceMultipier: a sum that is multiplied by the Sale price or Weight
Trigger: If the 'Trigger' is set to 'Trigger by Weight' and the weight is above this value then the PriceMultipier will be triggered.

If set and the 'Trigger' is set to 'Trigger by Price' and the Sale Price is above this figure then the PriceMultipier will be triggered.
PriceFree: If the Sale price is above this figure Shipping will be free

Default config section: Postcodes not found use the default values.

Install the Joomla 3.x/2.5 Plugin by using the standard Joomla installer.
Then enable the VM Postcode shipping plugin in the Joomla 3.x/2.5 Extensions->Plug-in manager.

Great Shipping Module


Posted on 09 September 2014

Have bought this plugin for a J3/VM2.9 site, to handle different shipping rates required for delivery to 'Highlands and Islands' in Scotland. It installs easily, is easy to configure and customise - for example, setting 'Free Shipping' or 'Zero Fee' to display "£0.00" in the Shopping Cart page took about 5 minutes and most of that time was spent digging through the Joomla folders to find the right file to edit!



I highly recommend this shipping plugin - 11 out of 10


Amazing extension

Hello, amazing extension. it really saves you work if you filter by zip codes, but also the tech support is even better. I highly recommend it.


Highly recommended

I contacted GJC Webdesign for a plugin customization and I was very impressed by the service provided by John.

Good work!! Thanks


Excellent Service


Posted on 17 November 2013

Contacted John late friday with a new feature request, and got a response very quickly. Over the weekend I received several messages from John regarding my request and by Sunday he had sent me a updated version of the postcode plugin with the feature I had requested. This was way more that what I was expecting especially over the weekend!



First class service and support!!



Thanks for a great product and experience



This is a great plugin and getting better


This extension is a must if you are using VirtueMart 2. Here is a quick list of who should get this extension:



1) Anyone who has a fulfillment house for products being delivered that has a complicated shipping cost breakdown or procedure.



2) Anyone selling physical goods on their website.



3) Anyone who is shipping nationwide (I am in the states and this saved me many hours).



4) Anyone using VM2 who has more than one shipping option (FedEX, UPS, DHL, etc.)



5) Anyone using VirtueMart 2.



6) Anyone who loves having great support from developers who know their product inside and out and WILL respond to you in a timely manner!



The base shipping methods in VM2's core are fine if you only have one or two shipping requirements, but when you have over 1500+ based on actual postal zones and individual costs provided by the shipping providers, it is pretty much useless.



Luckily there is VM Postcode. Saved me so much work and calmed down a rather terrified client who did not like the idea of adjusting so many parameters when shipping costs fluctuate (which they do quite a bit)



A+ across the board on this one.


We contacted John to see if we could add a new feature to his plugin.



We were very impressed with his work in implementing our required features, clearly a very competent I.T expert and coder.



His communication was excellent throughout and he worked quickly and more than met our expectations and requirements.



We would definitely recommend not only the plugin, but the company he works for. In all likelihood we will be contacting him again to help us with non postcode related coding issues.



Thanks again



*****


We needed to implement a complex shipping solution for a client, and the standard Virtuemart shipping conditions were not suitable.



This extension allows you to really expand and customize your shipping into zones and offer variable shipping fees.



We had some issues with getting it set up perfectly.



The support is amazing, John was quick to respond, explained how we could achieve what we wanted, and with his extensive knowledge of virtue mart got it sorted it no time.



Highly Recommended.


The perfect solution for complicated zoned shipping. Works straight out of the box. Documentation is thorough. Support is excellent.


Great Work

Used this on a new e-commerce site for a client and will definitely use it again. Works very well and if you get stuck then the support is excellent. Use this for a hassle free solution for your postcodes


I was searching for extension that can help me to allow radius based shipping. Finally i used this extension to sort out my need. and it worked very well. John guided me over email and skype to get it sorted. very pleased with this extension and John's support.

The 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.

The VM e-go Shipping for VirtueMart - A simple to install and configure shipping plugin for a popular & economis Australian freight service. ++++++ 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.

Prevent one off and low stock items being added to multiple carts! The Product Checkout Lock for VirtueMart prevents single stock articles being added to more than one cart at a time. 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.
