Just incase the site given in another answer goes down for some reason.

You may want to filter shipping method in onepage checkout for one of the following cases:

  • Filter shipping method based on Customer Group
  • Filter Shipping method based on Country, State, Zipcode etc
  • Filter Shipping method based on products
  • etc.

Unlike event: ‘payment_method_is_active’ for payment method filtration, we don’t have a similar event: ‘shipping_method_is_active’ available for shipping method.

Whatever may be the reason we still can filter by overriding: Mage_Shipping_Model_Shipping::collectCarrierRates()

Solution Suppose a skeleton module(MagePsycho_Shipmentfilter) has already been created. And for example purpose we will be hiding flat rate shipping for non-logged in customer.

  1. Rewrite the shipping model class: ‘Mage_Shipping_Model_Shipping’ File: app/code/local/MagePsycho/Shipmentfilter/etc/config.xml
  1. Override the method: collectCarrierRates()

File: app/code/local/MagePsycho/Shipmentfilter/Model/Shipping.php

class MagePsycho_Shipmentfilter_Model_Shipping extends 
Mage_Shipping_Model_Shipping {
    public function collectCarrierRates($carrierCode, $request) {
        if (!$this - > _checkCarrierAvailability($carrierCode, $request)) {
            return $this;
        parent::collectCarrierRates($carrierCode, $request);
    protected function _checkCarrierAvailability($carrierCode, $request = null) {
        $isLoggedIn = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session') - > isLoggedIn();
        if (!$isLoggedIn) {
            if ($carrierCode == 'flatrate') {
                # Hide Flat Rate
                for non logged in customers
                return false;
        return true;
  1. That’s all.
