Joomla Virtuemart Custom Shipping Cost Per Product

Virtuemart Custom Shipping Cost Per Product is working in the Joomla version as below :

Joomla 3.x, Virtuemart 3.x


Important Note- Before configuration please go through the concept, this extension has some restriction while creating different shipment method for different countries using Custom shipping cost per product shipment. For an example:

If store admin wants to make multiple shipments using custom shipping cost per product then the admin has to keep group name and products of that particular group exactly same in each group.

Let us say you have made 2 shipments one for the USA and another for the Uk, with name USA shipment and UK shipment respectively,

In USA shipment which is made for the USA, you have created 2 groups “Group 1” with price 10 and “Group 2” with price 20

so in the case, of UK shipment you have to create the same group with the name “Group 1” and “Group 2” too. while you can keep price 30 and 40 respectively or whatever you want. Also both “Group 1” must have the same product and “Group 2” have the same products.
