The module adds a new shipping option. If you are looking for modifying cost of existing methods, like UPS ground, please consider our popular Shipping Rules module.
Set individual shipping rate per product
Solve the problem of incorrect shipping rates
If you have big and light items, shipping calculators could charge more than needed. Also when shipping to specific countries (e.g. Iceland, Canada, etc) or using dropshippers, shipping costs could differ a lot, which makes table rates almost useless. This is where our Magento shipping per product extension comes into play - with it you can indicate individual shipping rate for each product and be sure that the right amount is charged for shipping.
Magento product export/import functionality is fully supported
Our Magento shipping per item module adds a new product attribute for storing the rate information, which can be used both for import and export of shipping rates. This can be used for migration of data to magento from other ecommerce solutions and also to update shipping rates in bulk.
Use default shipping rate settings to automate the process
Apply the highest product shipping rate for the whole order
Due to this feature you can automatically set the highest product rate to be the shipping cost for the whole order. For example, your customer has several products with different shipping rates in his/her shopping cart. If you activate this feature, the total shipping cost will be equal to the shipping rate of the highest product from the order.
Specify default shipping rate
The extension provides you with an option to automatically use default rate for all products, for which individual shipping rate hasn't been indicated.
Set individual flat shipping rate for each product
You can set individual shipping rate for each product when creating new product or editing existing one in admin panel. This will help to handle heavy or fragile items properly.
Apply shipping rates to products regardless of the number of product items in the cart
If you enable this feature, customers will pay the same amount for shipping of a product without regard to the number of items – shipping rate will be the same for 1 or 5 or 10 or etc items of a product. E.g. if shipping price is $5 for product A and this feature is enabled, shipping will cost the same $5 for product A whether there are 3, 5, 10, etc items of it.
Set minimal/maximal margins for shipping costs
The minimum and maximum apply to the whole order, not to each individual item. Let's say you have 2 products in the cart. Shipping for one is $5 and for the other $7. If minimal value is set to 15 - the shipping rate for the whole order will be $15, not $12. Maximal value works on analogy.

Installation was easy and only took a few minutes.
At the time, we had a need for one flat-rate shipping option for our 'home' country, and a different flat rate for 'overseas'. After a couple emails back and forth to work out the details, we purchased the extension with installation and the developer installed it twice for us so that it would do exactly as we needed (one installation acted as the 'home' rate and one the 'overseas' rate).
Fast forward to a week ago. After a couple of years of successful sales, made easier through the use of this extension, we decided that we were going to try make shipping easier for our customers again, this time by charging only once, total, for highest shipping rate only (if they have 2 items, one's shipping is $10, and the other $5, it would only charge $10, not add them both for $15). A quick look at the settings for the plugin we had installed showed that it wasn't able to do this.
A quick google search for what we needed had me come across the Amasty page for this plugin again - and the updated version did exactly what we wanted, again!
After some more back and forth with the support folks at Amasty, they updated the unique installation we had on our shop so we could continue to use the plugin, but with the now added functionality they had included since our initial purchase and installation.
In short, this plugin does exactly as described. I've had a great experience with everyone I've contacted at Amasty, and highly recommend them.
Plus it's really useful that we can also set minimal and maximal values for shipping for each order.
