Hello I am looking for someone who has good knowledge of Virtuemart in order to advise me regarding my online shop.

The issue I am having is that I would like to be able to select a different shipping method for different products.
So product "a" will have for example a UPS shipping option and product "b" will have free shipping option for example. I am not sure if this can be configured in the backend with the current module settings and options. If so I have not managed to do this.
If it does not then I would like to find the right programmer to add some core coding to Virtuemart component to make this possible.
Alternatively I have also been considering scrapping Virtuemart and using a non Joomla based e-shop, but would only expect to be advised on this matter by someone who knows Virtuemart very well with the components strong points and weaknesses.
he main issue is that when I want to configure a new product one must first configure the payment method for the product, so lets say I chose paypal for a product, then one must configure the shipping. My problem is that I would like to be able to configure the shipping separately for each product so that I can select one shipping method for one product and a different shipping method for another product.
This is essential becuase some products will be downloadable and others will be "free shipping" and others will be sent via "royal mail" etc. Herein lies the real problem: that is that the customisation of the shipping is not flexible enough for my needs. However as I am not totally versed in Virtuemart, this customisation option may already exist as part of the component. If it does it will be easy for someone like you to explain it to me by configuring a couple of products for me. Alternatively if the component doesn't have this option then I will need some core programming done.
