Admin Custom Shipping Rate

UPDATE: 1/26/2016

I have received many messages over the years asking for support or to take over the extension. If you wish to take over developing the extension, you are free to do so. The code is open source. You do not have to give me any credit, and I would prefer that you don't. Just take the code, and do whatever you want with it. I am no longer developing for Magento and have not for years and probably never will again. Please do not contact me for anything. I understand people find this extension useful and I wish I had the time to keep it going, but I simply don't. Thank you for understanding. ## UPDATE: 1/30/2012

I am sorry to inform that this module is NO LONGER SUPPORTED. I simply do not have the time to work on it anymore and I haven't for a long time. I do not see this changing anytime soon. I simply cannot and will not provide any support whatsoever, paid or otherwise. Please do not contact me for help with the module as I can't help you. I will hand over this module to anyone who is willing and able to fix the bugs, keep it up to date, and add features. You don't even have to give me credit if you don't want to. My only request is that the basic functionality and all updates remain FREE for life. If you are looking for a version compatible with Magento 1.6, look here:

Since there is no support and likely won't be any further updates, use this module at your own risk. I cannot be held responsible if it wrecks your store. As with any Magento extension, always do a thorough test on a development copy of your store first.

 Please note! Magento version 1.3.2 or higher is required to use this extension. Please make sure your Magento install is version 1.3.2 or higher before installing. Also note that this is NOT a per product shipping module.

Also note that if you wish to install the latest 1.5.0 version of this extension, you must set your Prefered State to Beta under the settings tab of your Magento Connect Manager.  If you do not it will install the older 1.4.7 version.

Adds ability to specify a custom shipping rate and title when creating a new order in backend. This allows you to utilize any shipping method and price you want, even if it's not available to customers on the front end.

The extension is based on code found in this thread:

Thanks go out to szotyi for getting this started and to everyone else that helped test this.

Known IssuesThere is a known issue with this extension if you are charging tax on shipping.  As of this writing I have not found a confirmed solution that works for everyone.  Please see this thread for more info:
