How can I fetch the options or details of the shipping method configured in the admin side?

You can get that just like you get any config value:

Mage::getStoreConfig('PATH GOES HERE');

In you case it will be


Replace '[shipping_method_code]' and '[field_name]' with the appropriate values.

as @nevvermind said in the comments below.
If you have the shiping method model instance you can use:


take a look at how Mage_Shipping_Model_Carrier_Abstract::getConfigData works.

For completeness' sake: and Mage_Shipping_Model_Carrier_Abstract::getConfigData/getConfigFlag('[field_name]‌​'). – nevvermind May 7 '14 at 8:56
@nevvermind. Right. That would work to. I will add it to the answer. Thanks. – Marius May 7 '14 at 9:01
Than you so much, I'm still new to magento so I had a hard time configuring these stuffs. But this already answered my question ^_^ – user6493 May 8 '14 at 2:06
