Quick and flexible way to add shipping methods
I am not an expert Magento user, but this extension was easy enough to install and use. Moving all the installation files and directories to corresponding ftp-folders took some time but the installation manual made it easy (although I wish it was included in the package). The user manual could have started with a more visual approach rather than table, but luckily the backend view was really simple and easy to use even without the manual.
This was an easy way for me to add another flat rate shipping method (and will be adding more in the future). I had an earlier extension that gave 5 extra flat rates but they were already in use, so this extension really saved the day. Hopefully we'll see an even simpler installation in the future but nevertheless I recommend this for anyone in need of a quick and flexible way to add shipping methods!

this extension is not working in 126.96.36.199
I have installed it and there is nothing change in my frontend and backend. When I check in app/etc/modules the Xogenics_StockStatusImages.xml file were shown as a folder(?) deleted it and put in the xml I got from the package. Now in the backend there is new tab in System -> Configuration under advanced tab. When I clicked on it, I got 404 error

Must have extension - Top 5!
Alright, where to get started?
This is a must have extension if you have more than one shipping courier and specially if you handle inbound and outbound with different couriers. Or different countries with different couriers or your shop is not in one of the large countries so the built in ones can not be used.
I have installed alot of extensions before so I rearly read the instructions nowadays but this time I had to.
It would be easier if the folders had the correct locations. For eg adminhtml/default/default/images/internationalshipping/ should be skin/adminhtml/default/default/images/internationalshipping/
so no misunderstanding can occur. Ofcourse if you follow the instruction manual it will install perfectly but normally there is no need to follow such if the locations and folder are presented correct.
I am using this extension with Firecheckout which is a one page checkout and I had no conflicts at all, so I can recommend them both together.
The user/settings manual is very easy to understand and all settings are explained as they should with pictures. All in all it is a very easy and configurable extension.
It have all the configuration options that are needed, and I have setup 4 different methods now for selected countries with both free shipping over a certain amount but also different provider for different countries and it works 100% and without any errors in log.
One thing it is missing which is pretty essential is to include some way of adding our tracking number into the shipping emails. Right now our chosen shipping instructions are not being shown in the admin section for sending shipping emails. So we have to chose custom all the time. If the shipping method could be enhanced further to include a custom tracking link it would make this complete.

If you need to add more shipping methods this is the extension for it
I have been searching alot for having the possibilty to add multiple shipping methods, have tried two but none worked as described.
I wanted to achieve the following:
Inbound > DHL
Problem is that I am using another countries service so the built in ones does not suit me.
Together with that I wanted to also add Free shipping over a certain amount.
All of the above it was possible to achieve with this extension. And compared with the two others I tested this one has loads more features. So can highly recommend this!
I have not tested the developer support so therefor I only give it an average. In my world, if an extension works as described and do not conflict with anything then there is no need to contact the developer or request support at all.

Been looking for flexible shipping plugins to accomodate all my partners specific needs and this plugin is great. Took me 10 minutes to install. Documentation is pretty clear. I love that you can apply the methods across categories & SKU ranges - powerful. Would love to have an option to have an incremental flat rate on a single item or sku range, eg $5 for the first book and $2 for each additional, other items free shipping, other items incremental on some other schema, etc.

We had to do a manual upload, as the package did not get upload due to some version inconsistencies...
But it saved a ton of time in other areas...great extension.
