In the developers guide it suggests you can use a shipping by product method, but does not give any information as to how. I think I saw somewhere that you might use the "weight" field in the Products table, but we don't want to use the weight of the product as a shipping guideline.

Here is what I need to do. The store has basically 3 types of produtcs.
1) Products that are offered with free shipping.
2) Products that have a fixed cost associated with them to ship.
3) Products that have an unknown cost associated with them to ship - they are big and/or heavy and ship via freight, so the customer must request a shipping quote.

The one thing I want to avoid is having a shipping dropdown box where the customer can select free shipping for an item that is not eligible for free shipping. Right now I have the shipping dropdown turned off so this can't happen.

I've messed around with this and have a somewhat functional method, but I'm not totally pleased with it. Anyone have any ideas as to how to set this up?

Thanks in advance.
