This is a VirtueMart 3.0 Shipping Module/Plugin for the New Zealand Post Office Parcel Service - Domestic and International. It is fully compatible with all Joomla and VM versions incl J3.3.3 & the upcoming VM3 and backward compatible to Joomla 2.5 / VM2.6 series.

You need to apply to New Zealand Post for an api key to use the calculator. Simply enter it in the plugin configuration. You can get it here API Key

It is necessary to make two new shipping methods (if you are using International shipping) - one for domestic with only New zealand as the chosen country and a second with the chosen International countries selected.
Your units for the product need to be in centimeters and kilos!

Install the Joomla Plugin by using the standard Joomla installer for the file VM.3.NZpost.shipping.plugin.3.0.2.zip.


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