Play with a live demonstration of Admin Based Shipping.
Our Admin Based Shipping extension gives you the ability to apply a custom shipping rate when creating a new order in the Magento Admin Panel.
The extension is particularly useful for businesses that take phone orders and agree shipping rates with customers over the phone. With Admin Based Shipping you enter your custom shipping rate when you create the new order in the Admin Panel, add a custom description, and invoice your customer as you would with any standard shipping rate.
Admin Based Shipping is ideal for businesses that use manual freight rates.
