Multi Flat Rate Shipping

This shipping module lets you create different shipping costs based on your Geo Zones. 
The module settings also include an All Zones section. The rates you set in this section can apply to every zone, or only apply when there are no active Geo Zones active. Set this option in the Status field of All Zones.

As an example, say you have a USA Shipping zone set up, and you charge three different flat rates in that zone:

$5 for slow shipping, $10 for regular shipping, and $15 for fast shipping.

Let’s say you also have some All Zones rates set up:
$13 for normal shipping, and $20 for express shipping. I

f you set the All Zones status to “Enabled when no Geo Zones are active”, then only customers outside the USA will see the $13 and $20 rates.

If you set the All Zones status to “Enabled”, then non-USA customers will see the $13 and $20 rates, and USA customers will see all the rates mixed together:  $5, $10, $13, $15, and $20.

For shipping costs and title, enter them in the Rates field in this format:

Title:Cost, Title:Cost, Title:Cost

For example:

First-Class:4, Parcel Post:7, Priority Mail:10
