Magento 1.9.1
Porto theme

I am trying to add another Flat rate shipping option.

I followed these steps here but I am not certain as to where to find the 2nd Flat rate shipping option:

How to add multiple flat rate shipping

(it's the step that starts with:

You could also create a second flat rate shipping method with a module. and has a +150 bounty awarded to it)

I looked in the Admin under Shipping methods but it's not there.

If this is not going to work at all - is there another way to do this?


UPDATED on April 15th, 2019:

I am trying to set this up on Magento 1.9.4 but it does not appear to be working. It gives the following Error:

There has been an error processing your request Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons.

Error log record number: 1248949596922

This is the content of that Error log:

  • I've tried this and it now does appear in the Admin but does NOT appear on the front end after enabling the Flat rate 2 option. I've tripple checked all the files and paths and I'm 100% sure I followed all of your steps correctly....Is there anything else I can try to make this work? Thank you. – Allysin May 29 '18 at 19:52
  • updated config.xml code please update your code and check again – Prashant Valanda May 30 '18 at 6:01
  • Now it appears on the front end (thank you) but there are 2 problems with it: 1. I specified $9.99 for the first (default) flat rate and $17.50 for the 2nd (your flat rate) but when I place a test order using the 2nd (your flat rate) - it comes through as $9.99 on the order. The second problem I have to fix is - we have the Delivery date extension from Amasty (just a fancy calendar) and it appears when customers select the first flat rate....oddly enough though - it also appears when I select the 2nd (your) flat rate method. Is there any way to rename your flat rate so that.. – Allysin May 30 '18 at 20:36
  • ....the calendar from Amasty would NOT show after clicking that radio button? – Allysin May 30 '18 at 20:40
  • For that problem you need to customize amasty extension code – Prashant Valanda May 31 '18 at 5:40
