Virtuemart is Joomla's very popular e-commerce platform. And while the system is very powerful, easy to use, and free (open-source) it does lack a couple of things out of the box. One of things that the developers of Virtuemart didn't entirely plan out is when a business sells to multiple types of businesses or consumers. For instance, Simple CMS recently built a Joomla site with Virtuemart installed to sell art products. These art products were sold to both businesses, consumers and non-profit organizations including government agencies like schools. The company did charge for shipping via Fed-Ex, UPS and USPS but left the option up to the buyer as to which method they wanted.
The problem lay in that UPS offers two different rates, one for commercial addresses and one for residential. The residential rate is higher. Natively, Virtuemart allows you to choose whether to show a shipping rate for either or but doesn't allow you to choose both based off the customer.
