Individual Per Item shipping charges

How can I set up individual shipping charges per item?

The per-weight shipping module can be used for this.

  1. Turn on the Per-Unit (perweightunit) shipping module in Admin > Modules > Shipping

  2. Now manually edit each product and enter the shipping cost as the product “weight”. This module uses the product-weight as the shipping rate for this product. This means the weight field is no longer the weight – it is only the shipping cost.

  3. Turn off weight display everywhere, since it is no longer meaningful.

    a) Turn off weight display on the product info page.

    b) Admin > Configuration > Shipping/Packaging > Display Number of Boxes and Weight Status

    c) Admin > Configuration > Index Listing / All Listing / New Listing / Featured Listing - all must be changed to not display the weight.
