Magento Matrix Rates and Recurring Profiles (nominal items)

I posted the following question on stackoverflow:
I’m using magento and I have matrix rates to handle the shipping, I’ve just setup a product with a recurring profile, magento’s knowledge base says this for recurring profiles “The list of available shipping methods during the shopping cart checkout is restricted to the fixed only (Fixed, Table Rates, and Free).” however I want to know if any one has been successful in making matrix rates work with recurring profiles?

My answer is now yes and its pretty simple!

This isn’t tested fully yet but I have managed to get it to work by simply adding

protected $_isFixed = true;

To the following

class Webshopapps_Matrixrate_Model_Carrier_Matrixrate
extends Mage_Shipping_Model_Carrier_Abstract
implements Mage_Shipping_Model_Carrier_Interface

  1. I cannot thank you enough for this. It did in fact work…. I’ve been pulling my hair out trying to understand why there were no shipping options available for a client’s recurring profiles.
