    Default Setting Shipping Costs?

    I'm sure there's a simple answer to this one, I just can't find it...

    How do I set up shipping costs for individual items?

    For example, I have a rabbit hutch that I want to charge £12.50 for shipping but I have a guinea pig run that I want to charge £8 for shipping.

    I can't seem to find an option when adding an item to set the cost?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    You could use the Per Unit perweightunit Shipping Module ...

    This is designed to use the products_weight and products_attributes_weight to set the charger on a Per Item basis where the weight is the shipping costs * unit rate of this Shipping Module ...

    Hmmmm I don't think that will work...

    Here in the uk we have a strange postal service that calculates cost based on weight and size of parcel.

    So just setting parameters that calculate cost of shipping by weight alone would not give anywhere near an accurate cost...

    Thanks for the suggestion anyway...

    Any other ideas?

    Ok think I may have found the answer with a Royal Mail Mod...

    However, can someone tell me how to install a mod?
