1. Overview

Admin Shipping Method free extension comes up with an original shipping method that is only visible to admins in the backend. Only by creating new orders in the backend, does the shipping method activate. In other words, customers cannot select this shipping method when they checkout, because it is not displayed in the frontend.
The extension should be designated for orders of free delivery cost.
