Enabling a Specific Shipping Method in OpenCart
OpenCart allows you to set up weight based shipping options. Remember, this will only work correctly if you have entered in a product weight. The Product weight can be found by opening the product in the OpenCart Dashboard and going to the “Data” tab.
Setting up the weight based shipping method is easily accomplished through your OpenCart Dashboard.
Let’s look at an example:
You would use the following rates:
10:5.00, 20:15.00, 40:25.00, 999999:35.00
The last entry is extremely important since it sets an infinite weight ceiling. If you don’t have the 999999 rate, then any shipment over 40lbs would not be able to use weight based shipping and it would not show.
Since weight based shipping supports Geo Zones, each individual Geo Zone can have its own set of weights and costs as well as ranges.

In testing a fresh 126.96.36.199 Opencart installation, the Weight based shipping appears as an option when going to Extensions >> Shipping. If you are not seeing it, you may want to try a test of a fresh installation in another section of your hosting account. It should show up.
You may need to rollback your upgrade with the backup you made before performing the upgrade and try again. The weight based shipping is a standard part of the current core and should always be there.
