Virtuemart 2.0 UK Postcode Shipping Plugin example
  • VirtueMart 2.0
  • UK Postcode Shipping Module

Many people have asked for further explanation of our VirtueMart 2.0 UK Postcode Shipping Plugin that fully integrates and allows a complete UK Postcode area solution with only one setup.
Below is a configuration example for a relatively simple UK postage scheme.
See a working example at VM test site 2 , there is a lot more country specific info there.

Our VirtueMart 2.0 Shipping Plugin allows a very simple configuration of all Postcode areas in one method.

You no longer need multiple shipping methods for every Postcode area PLUS it works perfectly with Alpha/Numeric codes that are needed in the UK and Canada.

The UK Postcode example below breaks the Uk up into 6 zones:

  • Northern Scotland
  • Central Scotland
  • Northern Ireland
  • The Channel Islands
  • Central London Congestion Zone
  • Everywhere else


This example isn't complete to save space but you can see how to break up the postcodes. The plugin searches for matches starting with 4 figures and works backwards to a single figure.

With the settings above a parcel to an Inverness postcode starting with IV2 83  and below a value of £25.00 would cost £45.50 and 75p for each £25.00 after that. When the order reached £200.00 the parcel would be postage free.

Northern Ireland would be £15.00 for the first £25.00 and 55p for each £25.00 and no free postage.

The Default section covers any postcode that isn't found.

This plugin is highly adaptable and I have done many minor custom changes to the clients  plugin to acheive different postage schemes - for example by weight blocks or even by psuedo catergories.

If you have any custom requests just send me an email via our contact page.

Have included the code below as it can be used as a good starting point for the configuration.

Southern Scotland,IV283*IV438*IV448*IV458*IV468*IV478*IV488*IV499*IV510*IV519*IV558*IV568,45.50,0.75,2.00,200
Northen Scotland,HS12*HS19*HS20*HS29*HS33*HS43*HS53*HS65,45.50,0.75,2.00,20,,
Northern Ireland,BT,15.00,0.55,,
Channel Islands,IM*GY*JE,45.50,0.75,,
Central London,E16*E17*EC1A1*EC1A2*EC1A4*EC1A7*EC1A9,8.00,0.30,,
