Shipping Rules | v1.1.6
Adjust shipping rates according to your business needs
Quite often store owners need to modify shipping rates provided by UPS shipping, DHL or other shipping carriers not to lose money. This can't be done with standard Magento delivery options, as the rates are transmitted via carrier APIs in live mode. With the help of the module you can increase and decrease standard rates or override them completely. For example, it is possible to set products from category 'Flowers', which cost less than $20, to be shipped with a $5 surcharge, when in your Magento UPS carrier is selected and shipping destination is Alaska or Hawaii.
Create extremely flexible shipping rules
The module gives you a very wide range of parameters, by which you can create shipping rules, like Magento free shipping rule and many others. The parameters can be used both individually and in combinations. What's more, the extension provides a number of algorithms for calculation of shipping rate surcharges, discounts and overriding. Please read on for more details.
Provide shipping methods with accurate pricing to your customers not to lose orders
Parcel and LTL (less than truckload) freights are often overpriced by carriers, when there are several products in an order. This leads to unreasonably high shipping prices. Several small products can fit into one package, however USPS (or other carrier) may charge for several packages. The same situation can be with LTL freights, such as a wardrobe for example. Customers would just refuse to overpay for delivery and you will lose money. Now in your Magento USPS, LTL or the issues with other carrier companies can be easily fixed. With the extension you can set a rule that up to three items can be delivered for the base fee of let's say $100 for the truck + $20 for each item, instead of charging for the whole truck for each product. When there are five items it will be $200 for two trucks + $100 for the five items, instead of $600 for five trucks and five products. Use the module to correct the shipping rates and get more orders.
Set shopping cart price rule condition
Now you can simply specify the name of a particular shopping cart price rule to apply its conditions with your shipping rule. This feature is great when you need to apply multiple coupons or discounts.
Modify rates both for individual products and for whole orders
If there are specific products in the cart, you can increase, decrease or determine shipping rates for the whole order. Let's say surcharge by $5 all orders, which contain items which have long items in them, as it requires a longer box, for example. Also it is possible to apply the actions to individual products - e.g. give 3 euro shipping discount for each camera.
Set shipping rules by days of the week
Specify particular days of the week to apply the shipping rule on these days only. If you want the rule to be applied daily, just left the field empty or specify all the week days.
Apply surcharge, discount and override actions to shipping rates
Sometimes you may need to increase or decrease shipping rates. In other cases business requires replacing current rates or creating Magento free shipping rules. The module provides the necessary actions for all these situations.
Effective algorithms for rate calculation
It is possible to modify delivery prices both by flat amount and by percent at the same time. In addition you can add a base amount for the whole order. For example, in certain situations you can add $25 surcharge for the whole order and $5 + 10% of the product price for each individual product. Or no discount for the whole order, however 5% of product price discounted off shipping for each individual item.
Base rules on order and shipping address data
Order attributes, such as subtotal, weight, items quantity are available for rule conditions. Also you can set conditions off address line, zip code, state or province, country. E.g. you can surcharge orders with subtotal less than 100 euros and weight more than 20 kilograms, which need to be delivered to California.
Use product attributes for rule conditions
You can employ all product attributes such as category, brand, SKU and so on. For example, you can set a rule to apply to products from category 'Shoes', of brand 'Gucci', from 'leather' material.
Add surcharge or discount based on unit weight
Use this option to surcharge or discount shipping price based on the product weight. For example, if the product weight is 5 kg and surcharge rate per a unit of weight is 2 USD, than final shipping price will increase on 10 USD.
Include tax in product conditions
Set the condition to count total amount including tax. This feature will save both your money and your time
Create shipping rules for custom areas
Now the module allows you to create custom groups of several countries in order to set shipping rules for the whole area. No more fuss with setting many rules one by one for each country; save your time with the new function!
Use customer attributes like email, name, etc., for rule conditions
If you have Special Promotions Pro module installed on your Magento, you can use any customer attributes for conditions of shipping rules. Let's say you partner with a company, which has a site example.com. You can discount shipping rates for all emails with this domain name. You can also create special Magento shipping rules for individual customers.
Conditions "starts from" and "ends with"
Especially useful for zip codes, so you can specify that a restriction should apply to all zip codes starting from '123' or ending with 'XYZ'.
Apply shipping rules only when a discount coupon is used
You can specify a coupon created in 'Shopping Cart Price Rules' section and the shipping rule will apply only when the coupon is used.
This feature is very helpful to set, for example, FedEx shipping and want certain percentage to add or deduct from its standard rate, but want to specify the maximum amount, which will be added or deducted by this rule.
Set up rules by store view and customer groups
You can have separate shipping rules for each store view and customer group. So you can give better shipping rates to your premium customers.
Set the order for rules application.
When a product fits conditions of several rules, only the rule with highest priority is applied to the product to make sure shipping rates do not get messed up.
Reduce risk of incorrect rates
Only one rule can be applied to each product. When a product fits conditions of several rules, only the rule with the highest priority is applied to the product.
Consider using the solutions below to bring shipping to a new level:
Shipping table rates extension gives you full control over shipping. Create any number of shipping methods: flat rates, weight-based rates, etc. Use flat and percent rates, combinations of address, weight, price and quantity to calculate shipping. Import rates and edit them manually. Use rates based on product type, e.g. for extra large, toxic items.
With Shipping Restrictions extension you can adjust shipping process to your legal and business needs. Block shipping carriers or some methods of shipping carriers and put shipping restrictions based on customer group, order total, weight and other shipping parameters.

Online Extension User Guide
- Can I create shipping rules to restrict shipping?
- I’ve created the rule for particular categories, but it doesn’t work with configurable products.
I'll be waiting for that extension for Magento 2
I would be happy to see an ability to export these rules as when I use this extension on another store, I will have to re-create a rule by rule which is quite difficult and time consuming.
For example, if people order roses to be shipped to another town, we need a special price for the container to deliver them fresh.
With the extension it's easy and quick. Like.
Amasty Shipping rules module became a breath of fresh air for us!
We purchased Amasty's Shipping Rules Extension and it totally rocked the house! PLUS the CUSTOMER SUPPORT was off the hook! We had an issue (and receiving major heat from our client) that developed from our lack of expertise in using Magento and Alex from Amasty got back to us ASAP and solved it immediately!
These guys are the absolute best! If they're reading this...thank you for hitting the mark on all levels!
We absolutely recommend this company!

Support is responsive and kept helping until the extension worked fine; even though it turned out the problem was a Magento locale-translation error, and not the Amasty's fault.
I reccommend Amasty.
