For the delivery charges the customer should not to make any choice, So, i want to write the logic of calculation will be specified by back office OR hard code according to the product and the number of items.

Is it possible to individualize the cost for each item which a logic like:

Basic charge + charge per item x number of item?

Absolutely.

But you’ll have to write your own module, this feature is not available out of the box.

Cheers,

You know anything about PHP ? That would definitely be a start. Otherwise, you can get help grom getafreelancer.com or something like that.

There are some guide on this site on how to write modules.

You’ll have to create an attribute and assign it to each products for your shipping fee per item.

You can start by using the magento module creator, that will get you started with all of the basic files you need to start writing your module.
