Refer to attachments.

Administrator has created 4 main shipping methods and assigned them to vendor.

However, vendor cannot adapt these methods at all, apparently. This is necessary because vendors come from different parts of the country and will have different values for each of these methods.

How do I allow vendor to change only the prices of existing shipping methods and thereby create a new method for themselves?

 

Update: Its ok, I figured it out!

I am afraid it will be required to create separate shipping methods for each vendor

I am afraid it will be required to create separate shipping methods for each vendor

The way it seems to work is:

 

1) Admin creates shipping methods but does not apply them to vendor

2) Vendor creates new shipping method. In the "Shipping Charges" tab, vendor has access to admin's methods, and can adapt them to create new ones for themselves.

3) Vendor's newly adapted methods appear at checkout.

 

The only problem I've seen so far is that if the vendor comes back later and tries to create another shipping method, the previous ones don't have their values repopulated and revert to zero. So, if the user clicks "Save" after creating new method, it saves the other ones with zero value. Looks like a bug to me.

I would report that behavior as a bug in bugtracker.
