Re: CEON advanced shipping module
just did some tests and read the readme file and looks like your right, howveer I would agree with the above its by far the most versitile software.
this is what it says about the product/category allocation of shipping rates:
"By selecting a product/category/manufacturer as having this method apply to it, that product/category will only be able to be shipped by this method, unless the product/category/manufacturer is also specifically selected for other method(s) as well."
Perhaps try different rates based on weight/price - this way you can control it better
A problem shared is a problem solved.
