Added Fixed Rate – Why?????

Apply Fixed Rate

A resent request came across to allow for a fixed rate option on the module, so… I added it.  When set turned on, no rate request goes across to FedEx freight (or ltl).  Instead, the handling and additional handling fees are applied.
Why not just use the existing Fixed Rate extension?  That was my first thought, but then I came to understand by allowing a fixed rate option, you now have the ability to use the module as a generic shipping extension and still use tracking numbers.   So assume you currently use ACME shipping company in which you apply a fixed rate to each order.  You can now define ACMES’s tracking URL within the extensions setup which will allow you to add tracking number support for that order.
