Hey,
I'm used to the profile shipping that is an option on Etsy. It allows you to set shipping by type of product.

It allows you to set a flat rate for the first item and a little more for each additional item in that shipping profile. Is there any shipping module that allows this?

If you need product-based shipping, Category & Product-Based Shipping can do that. You can set quantity-based rates as well as rates on lots of other rates types (weight, total, etc.). Here's an example of an easy way to set it up for Product A ($3.00 for the first item, and $1.00 for each additional item) and Product B ($5.00 for the first item, and $2.00 for each additional item):

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CHARGE #1
Title: Product A Shipping
Group: A
Charge Type: Per Item Charge
Charge Field: 1.00
Rule: Adjust final charge 2.00
Rule: Product is Product A

CHARGE #2
Title: Product B Shipping
Group: B
Charge Type: Per Item Charge
Charge Field: 2.00
Rule: Adjust final charge 3.00
Rule: Product is Product B
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CHARGE COMBINATION #1
Sort Order: 1
Title Combination: Combined Title, With Prices
Groups Required: (leave blank)
Formula: SUM(A, B)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Feel free to take a look at the screenshots and demo site, and if you're interested let me know at www.getclearthinking.com/contact if you have any further questions.

Thanks so much for that. It looks exactly like what I'm looking for. A couple of questions. How do I differentiate between product A and product B in the product page? Will this just show them the shipping charge in the cart without them picking shipping method?

1. The extension has its own admin panel interface, you don't set up the shipping in the product page. Is this what you're asking?

2. Shipping methods in OpenCart must be chosen, they are not automatically applied. If you only offer a single option then the customer is forced to choose that, but they'll still have to click through that step of checkout.

If you want to automatically apply the shipping charge before checkout, I do have an Automatic Shipping extension that can do that. If you want to hide the shipping method step during checkout, I also have Hide Checkout Steps.

I assume the other 2 extensions would work with the shipping extension.

Yes, all my extensions are compatible with one another.
