I've tried a lot of different settings, I'm unable to make it work. I'll go with pure PHP instead.

Super confusing plugin. I thought it was suppose to allow you to set which shipping methods to show for different roles but it's the exact opposite. It allows you to set what shipping methods to HIDE for the role. No where is this mentioned except for the plugin tags. Once you work that out it works great, also needed to dig through the plugin images here to see what data to use for each shipping method. Mine where flat_rate:1 and flat_rate:10

Does what I need, ie different roles get different shipping prices, however could do with some documentation or something a bit nicer in setup to work out how to set the shipping rate. As my requirement is simple I could do it by guesswork.

I was banging my head against my desk for a minute trying to figure out why this plugin wasn't doing anything, then found this in a Stack Overflow thread: "You may have to "Enable debug mode" in general shipping settings under "Shipping options" tab, to disable temporarily shipping caches. Don't forget to enable back shipping cache." Works like a charm now. Thanks!
