We sit here on the eve of the 5th Magento Imagine conference, the Wynn awaits us, and 4-5 days of information, networking, partying, and most likely a little chaos. But as we anticipate what is probably the best eCommerce event on the calendar I can see that the landscape has changed, and I believe no-one is in any doubt that next year things will be very different...
Super Product Rate
Perfect, simple and valuable solution for companies who have relatively simple flat rates who want to ship worldwide on a Per Product basis.
• Manage shipping prices from within Admin Panel / Product Listing
• Vary shipping rates according to Products in Cart
• Define add-on shippings costs for products when more than one product in the cart (based on either product itself or shipping group it is in)
• Allows different rates for 3 zones (e.g. USA, CAN, ROW)

- Absolutely Perfect Review by Arthur
That being said there is no better extension to do just that. This extension gave us the ability to add whatever price we wanted to the groups of countries we ship to.
Beyond this, it couldn't have been any simpler to get up and running. The documentation is simple, to the point, and even has screenshots to help out. After a few minutes of setting up our shipping groups we could enter in all of our shipping prices exactly how we wanted them to be. The best advantage to this is that we didn't have to compromise taking a loss on shipping for some items, to get the price we wanted for others (using table rates).
This extension couldn't have worked any better than it did. And the support is awesome. (Posted on 9/24/09)
This is a variation on the popular Product Rate extension.
Super Product Rate enables you to assign shipping prices in your product listing. It supports different pricing based on:
• Destination (upto 3 zones are supported, e.g. USA, Canada, ROW)
• Shipping groups
It is all handled via the admin panel without the need to adjust or upload CSV tables.
Perfect, simple and valuable solution for companies who have relatively simple flat rates who want to ship worldwide.
Example Usage of Shipping Groups
In the diagram below you can see that we have 2 types of products - DVDs, and Books. We call these shipping groups and assign products to each. Rates are then defined based on the shipping group and the zone to which they are shipped.

When should I use a different shipping extension?
We specialise in the Magento shipping space - give us your customer shipping requirements and we can usually come up with a solution for you - we will identify the ideal extension or mix of extensions where possible, and we also can write custom solutions where required. Contact us with your requirements.
Super Product rate is ideal when you have quite simple rules around shipping based on per product prices, with different prices required for a couple of different countries and maybe rest of world.
Custom shipping rates - If you have complex rules around how shipping works when multiple products are in the cart then managing via a product listing alone is not possible, you need to look at Product Matrix which is the #1 shipping extension in this space. If unsure please send us your requirements and we will be happy to advise.
Product Matrix is much simpler to manage than an admin based shipping solution, because when prices change you will not have to update every product listing.
Override live shipping rates - If you need to override live shipping rates from carriers such as UPS or FedEx you will most likely need our Shipping Override extension.
