Possible To Hide Certain Shipping Methods?

Is there a way to hide certain shipping methods from the customer so that they are only selectable by an admin?

For example, the customer would be able to only see the shipping methods Standard and One-Day.

In the admin backend, an admin would be able to edit the order to select the shipping method UPS Next Day Air.

We ship using lots of different carriers and we don’t want the customer to have the ability to view every carrier and shipping method we offer.

In this way, we’d be able to select the proper choice for the customer in the admin backend (fedex, USPS, UPS) based on what is cheapest.

Try to create new user group and assign UPS Next Day Air method to this user group only. Most possibly it will be available for choice in the admin panel

(!) Not tested

I tried this but it doesn’t seem to work unless the order was placed from a user within that group

In this case custom development work is required

Yes, there is an addon presumably doing this


Thanks this addon worked for my needs.
