++++++ 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. There is a small charge of €15.
This isn't of course ideal and I have developed a template over ride for the address forms of VM and a system plugin to make use of a suburb api that e-go have made available. Download the VM2.0 e-go Suburb plugin here. There will have to be a charge for this as it was 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.
We are happy to announce a 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 2.0 Joomla 2.5 Shipping Plugin.
This is a VirtueMart 2.0 Shipping Plugin for the Australian shipping company e-go.com.au
Also your units for the product need to be in centimeters and kilos!
Install the Joomla 2.5 Plugin by using the standard Joomla installer for the file vm2.0_e_go_shipping.zip.
The next step is to enable the e-go.com.au shipping plugin in the Joomla 2.5 Extensions->Plug-in manager.
Then go to Virtuemart-->Shop->Shipment Methods and click 'New'.
Use the settings below. After saving intially you can then configure the parameters.
The module calculates in real time the shipping price from e-go considering the following parameters -
There is error checking via the e-go server and messages are reported back.
With a minor hack (there appears to be no native validation of shipping in the Virtuemart 2.0 core) the e-go Australia shipping method is un-selectable.
(Please contact me if you want this done)
