This is a VirtueMart 2.0 Shipping Module/Plugin that allows a very simple configuration of all a countries Postcode - ZIP code areas in one method. Latest Version: v1.7.

You no longer need multiple shipping methods for every Postcode - ZIP code area PLUS it works perfectly with Alpha/Numeric codes as in the UK and Canada.

Has been tested on:
  • USA ZIP Codes
  • UK Postcodes
  • Canadian Postcodes
  • French Postcodes
  • German Postcodes (PLZ)
  • Australian Postcodes
Will work on any known country Postcode - ZIP Code system.

 

Configuration is very simple - basically a comma separated list pasted in the text area to configure the method.
The format is:
Name,Postcode*Postcode*Postcode,BasePrice,PriceMultiplier,PriceTrigger,PriceFree
Each zone is on a new line.

vm2.0 postcode shipping configuration
Paste in a comma separated list of parameters each on a new line.
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 Y1A1 are valid.

  • BasePrice: Fixed fee - can be used in conjunction with the 'Up To Weight' condition setting an upper limit

  • PriceMultipier: can be a percentage or sum that is multiplied by the Sale price or Weight

  • Trigger: 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.

    If the 'Trigger' is set to 'Trigger by Weight' and the weight is above this value then the PriceMultipier will be triggered.

  • PriceFree: If the Sale price is above this figure Shipping will be free


Install the Joomla 2.5 Plugin by using the standard Joomla installer for the file vm2.0.postcode.shipping.zip.

The next step is to enable the VM Postcode shipping plugin in the Joomla 2.5 Extensions->Plug-in manager.


Then go to Virtuemart-->Shop->Shipment Methods and click 'New'.
Configure the various parameters. These are:

  • Country.
  • Lowest Weight.
  • Highest Weight.
  • Minimum number of products.
  • Maximum number of products.
  • Minimum order amount.
  • Maximum order amount.
  • Tax.
  • Default Zone values - Base, Multiplier, Trigger and Free. These values will be used if the postcode is not found.
  • Trigger by weight or price
  • Price Multiplier - choose to multiply by weight or Sales Price.
  • Price Multiplier Type - choose if to add the base value to the multiplier value.
  • Full debug on/off
  • Minor debug on/off

added 01.12.2012 - As of tested VM2.0.26 this bug is fixed in the VM core so this option removed

Now includes an over-ride (switchable in admin) to include State Taxes in the shipping price.
Basically it will apply to the shipping what ever tax % is being applied to the products.
This particularly applies to the USA & Canada where where different statewide taxes apply but VM ignores this in the shipping methods.
