Life saver app. its unfortunate you cant pay month to month on shopify and get this app too. But i think that is a shopify thing.
I wish I could give this app a million stars. What a wonderful resource to share with the community. There is a little bit of a learning curve, but once you understand how everything works, this is a really powerful tool to have.

Parcelify is a simple, but powerful (and FREE) app. Figuring out the logic and how to appropriately setup the rates can be confusing, but a few quick questions emailed to the developer helped and the rest was a little trial and error. This is may be somewhat of an advanced tool for many Shopify users and may require some learning to use, but definitely worth the time.
Honestly, Shopify should have something like this built in to begin with because it makes so much sense. Instead of paying for expensive apps that had options we really didn't need or want, we were able to setup different shipping rates and exclude certain items from those rates using product SKUs through this app. I honestly don't understand the negative reviews and they are probably due to people not understanding how to use the app.
This app is not good for those of us that have different vendors that have set shipping rates. The app gives the customer options to pick a shipping rate if the cart has different vendor items for purchase. This means one or more of the vendors items would not have shipping charged to their item. The customized shipping is awful to navigate and I'd advise against it. It's just not completely multiple vendor customization friendly.
Sounds like you just need some help understanding how to get the most out of Parcelify. Parcelify does allow you to create custom rates that account for all the items in the order (in your case from different vendors) all in the same rate. If you are interested in getting some help to setup rates using Parcelify please send us an email (email@example.com) and we will help you get setup.
Garbage app and misleading details.

Powerful app and I'm very thankful for open source! I quickly was able to provide shipping options for my surrounding cities to my wholesale customers to specific products so they can order online with the same rates I provide over the phone.

8/31/2018 Update: It looks like the original developer sold the app and now Parcelify is a paid app (it used to be free). We previously gave this 5 stars because it was a free app and it performed the intended function well. Now that it is a paid app though it should have a much easier to use interface. Setting up rules is complicated and time consuming. There are certain things that are trivial but add up; they price things in cents instead of dollars, you have to use certain keyboard symbols for and/or etc. They don't have a way to easily exclude US territories etc. It's a good app, but if they want customers to pay for it they should really consider updating the user interface.
Original Review: The standard Shopify shipping options are an absolute joke. This app certainly has a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it the power of it is incredible. We are now able to offer all sorts of different shipping options since we can assign them at the SKU level, which is bringing us significantly more profit.
You do need carrier calculated shipping to use the app (it's not an app issue, it's a Shopify restriction) which is only available on the Shopify Advanced plan. After some research you can call Shopify and ask for this feature and they will turn it on for $20/MO (you have to call though, this isn't advertised anywhere). If you switch your billing to annual they will also turn this feature on for free (you just call in and ask them to turn it on).
Side Note: Shopify includes territories that are not states (Puerto Rico, Guam, Armed Forces Americas, Virgin Islands etc.) in the United States dropdown… so the US rates you setup will default to including those territories. Be sure to exclude them as states in Parcelify if you don't want your USA rates to pull to those territories.

It became very easy for my online store furniturestop.co.uk now to create shipping rates based on our customers' address, products, weight or price. Simply loving this app. It is so easy to use.
Best app to customize shipping rates.
This app saved us from a third party vendors update that broke our store! Thank you!
