Play with a live demonstration of Shipping Override.
Shipping Override is a powerful solution that enables you to adapt your standard Magento shipping rates to meet your business needs. With Shipping Override you can set special shipping charges for certain products, surcharge your live shipping rates, or restrict shipping options based on destination, weight, product, cart subtotal or customer group.
The ability to override live shipping rates from many carriers – including FedEx, UPS and USPS – makes this extension particularly well-suited to the US market.
Please note: Shipping Override does not create its own shipping rates. For this we recommend our Product Matrix extension.
