I am using Joomla 1.5 and Virtuemart 1. I want to setup automatic shipping based on postcodes/location. For example if a customer lives in the postcode DH2 then they will have to pay a delivery fee of £1.50. Other fares for other postcodes could be higher or lower. I want to be able to do this automatically. Can anyone help?
GJC's plugin does the job. But this is using Joomla 2.5 and VM3. Still looking for an answer for 1.5, but might end up taking all sites to later Joomlas/VMs anyway. - http://www.gjcwebdesign.com/joomla-downloads/virtuemart-20-postcode-zip-code-shipping-plugin.html
The Standard Shipping module worked for me in Australia (see below).
UK postcodes are a little different and you may have to search the downloads and forums on the Virtuemart website for a UK postcode compatible version of the module.
- Create a Shipper.
- Create Shipping Rates as required as per the example below.
