It really would. For example offer free shipping(I use it as pick up) for customer group named “staff” which surprisingly includes staff members. Free shipping can be offered as well via some pricing rules of course, but it’s better to offer it as shipping method because if staff member wants not pick up the product instead he wants it to be shipped to his home.

This function should be really helpful for my website : Shipping methods for general group and resellers group should not be the same one.

Nothing on magento connect could help us?

Hello guys!

Really very impressive information and I’m trying to send a lot of packages around the United States, but I can’t find anything that is affordable. Can someone help me?

It is entirely possible that the cost of shipping passed on to the consumer will not be the same as the cost of shipping borne by the vendor. Some online vendors use this as bay area courier service | lift gate delivery a source of revenue, further increasing profits or allowing the vendor to advertise even lower up-front prices.

You can use a shopping cart rule to set up free shipping or discounts by customer group.  Would that do what you are looking for?

I have used shopping cart rules to apply free shipping for internal users via UPS. However, my company just switched over to flat rates (table rates). I was wondering if anyone knew of any solutions to get my internal users free shipping with out it being an option for external users.

Any help would be appreciated.

Our module allows you to apply free shipping on specific customers. It adds a multi select that contains a list with all store customers in Free Shipping module settings. You can select one or multiple customers that will always get free shipping option. You can find it here http://stoyansolutions.com/free-shipping-for-specific-customers.html

If you want to have customer group wise shipping method then you can simply override the method:

Mage_Shipping_Model_Shipping::collectCarrierRates()
And in the overridden class method use as:
<?php
/**
 * @category   MagePsycho
 * @package    MagePsycho_Shipmentfilter
 * @author     magepsycho@gmail.com
 * @website    http://www.magepsycho.com
 * @license    http://opensource.org/licenses/osl-3.0.php  Open Software License (OSL 3.0)
     */
class MagePsycho_Shipmentfilter_Model_Shipping extends Mage_Shipping_Model_Shipping
{
    
public function collectCarrierRates($carrierCode$request)
    
{
        
if (!$this->_checkCarrierAvailability($carrierCode$request)) {
            
return $this;
        
}
        
return parent::collectCarrierRates($carrierCode$request);
    
}

    
protected function _checkCarrierAvailability($carrierCode$request null)
    
{
        $generalGroupId         
1;
        
$wholesaleGroupId     3;
        
$customer     Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomer();
        if(
$customer->getGroupId() == $generalGroupId)//show hide shipping methods for General group
            
if($carrierCode == 'flatrate')//will hide flatrate shipping
                
return false;
            
}
        } 
else if($customer->getGroupId() == $wholesaleGroupId)//show hide shipping methods for Wholesale group
            
if($carrierCode != 'freeshipping')//will only show freeshipping for wholesale group
                
return false;
            
}
        }
        
//and so on
        
return true;
    
}
}

Shipping by customer group is very much needed! I want certain shipping options only visible to certain customer groups.
