Virtuemart - different shipping for each category
I'm working on a website using Joomla (Version [url removed, login to view] ) and Virtuemart (Version 1.1.5).
I have different categories, each one is from a different producer,
and needs different shipping details, based on weight bands.
To be more clear, every brand (category) is shipped by a different carrier, and with different weight bands and relative costs.
This is because we don't do the shipping, but the producers do it.
The questions to resolve are:
- putting 1 or more products of 1 category in the cart, the relative carrier should be chosen by virtuemart automatically, adding and showing shipping costs.
- putting more products from different categories in the cart, I need the calculation code modified to group the products and work out the rate for each group adding the seperate rates into one total rate, outputting the final total shipping rate as the shipping option, with a detailed breakdown of Carriers and sub totals shown.
