I would like step by step instructions in setting up basic shipping in virtuemart


Hi,
I was wondering if someone could help me step by step in setting up my shipping in Virtuemart .

It is so basic but I cannot seem to get it working .
I want a flat rate shipping in Aus - $10 (up to 10 products)
Inter ($20)
NZ ($15)

Thats it thats all, thats all I want.

I have another thread opened but its just not going anywhere and I really need some help to get this working please?
Thanks

Yes I have referred to that link many times...It doesn' t explain how to get a flat rate like I described in my post though?

I think using the Standard Shipping Module will work, but I need to be able to charge a different amount for purchases from NZ and Overseas...?

Which module do you use to use the Shipping Rates?

I think the name of the shipping module is "shipvalue" .

You set a order total range like this:

From $10 to $20 shipping is $5
From $21 to $30 Shipping is $10

and so on.

You can also do the same by weight, but each product needs to have their weight in the product settings.

Ok great I have found the ship value shipping module, but how can I use this for different countries?

Hi,

I just use the Standard Shipping Module.

The Zone Shipping might be what you need. But it looks like you are going to have to insert the countries yourself and specify the value for each of them.

I am not sure how this would look like for the user, maybe they will have an option to select in which "zone" they live etc.

Hope this helps

Well the Standard Shipping doesn't have anything you can configure to add countries...I would have expected that the address the user enters would be enough to read the country and then the shipping could apply to the country?

It seems so easy, I am just so not getting it?

With the Standard Shipping you have an option to create a shipping cost for each country and/or zip range:
Store -> Shipping Module List -> Standard Shipping -> Configure Ship Method -> New

Here you can add a different price for each country and/or zip range.

I have just tested it out.

So it only shows the shipping options that are created for my country in my shipping address.


PS. you are going to have to create a "Shipper" for this:
Shipping -> Create Shipper

Hope this helps
