Problem: Default Magento supports multiple offerings of shipping carriers and their methods for each store, yet it doesn't provide a flexible mechanism on manipulating them. The store owner can restrict a certain shipping carrier or its shipping method only for the whole store.
Solution: The Shipping Restrictions extension provides an incredibly flexible solution for creating a well-developed shipping policy in your store. You can easily manage available shipping methods from carriers based on various conditions to provide cost-effective and customized shipping options for customers.
Always cost-effective shipping
Optimal shipping methods are presented to the customer while he is still shopping
Adapt the shipping policy of your store to its business needs by creating a well-developed and flexible system of usable shipping methods for delivering orders.
Optimize the availability of shipping methods to offer cost-effective shipping for your customers. Having a comprehensive set of optimal shipping methods can facilitate flawless and comfortable deliveries of purchased items.
Offer optimal shipping methods for customers to enhance their shopping experience during the purchase checkout process. Block shipping methods that, for any reason, are not applicable for shipping the purchased items or delivery to the customer's location.
Provide access to relevant shipping methods that are determined in real time while the customer is still shopping. The eligibility of shipping methods is determined on the basis of a flexible set of conditions including:
- Ordered items attributes
- Cart attributes
- Week day and time
Optimize shipping to distant locations
Easily restrict suboptimal shipping methods for deliveries to remote locations
Be flexible when shipping to different regions. Adjust the list of available conveyance methods for distant order shipping to provide customers with high-quality delivery services.
Control the shipping methods for each location where your customers are based by setting geographical regions using restricted shipping methods.
Restrict shipping methods for specified shipping carriers based on such shipping information as:
- Shipping country
- Shipping state or province
- Shipping region
- Shipping postcode
Use this function to block suboptimal shipping methods in situations other that long distance delivery.
With Magento shipping extensions, you can also restrict a shipping method based on the specified payment method or block an ineligible delivery method for short-life products for customers from specific regions.
For example, a shop that sells flowers can restrict the delivery of cut flowers to the regions with a delivery time of just a few days since such purchase is a short-lived product.
Flexibly restrict shipping methods
Use a combination of conditions to restrict delivery methods for any scenario your business needs
Use a logical set of conditions based on order and cart attributes to create a flexible composition of restrictions for the shipping methods.
Combine the conditions on order and cart attributes that will result in the shipping restriction rule that best suits your business needs.
You can restrict shipping methods based on the following range of available options:
- Combination of product attributes
- Product subselection
- Shopping Cart attributes
- Combination of the options above
Using such a flexible shipping method restriction system allows you to, for example, block deliveries of heavy purchases that must be transported by a heavy truck if the region this purchase has to be shipped to has no roads that can sustain traffic from heavy delivery trucks.
Optimal shipping for products
Automatically provide ideal shipping methods based on the product attributes
The Shipping Restrictions module allows to select eligible shipping methods depending on the purchased product properties. Use the product attributes as conditions for blocking suboptimal delivery methods.
Prevent risky shipping for fragile, short-life or high value items. Set product attributes to precisely determine available shipping methods for ordered items according to their properties.
Use this Magento international shipping extension to specify product attributes so that your store complies with local and international shipping limitations.
Adapt the international shipping policy of your store so that it considers the regulations on exporting, importing, and transportation by providing only appropriate shipping methods for ordered items.
For example, shipping of li-ion batteries must be conducted as shipping of hazardous materials or dangerous goods. Such purchases require special packaging and handling, which can be provided by the selected delivery carriers.
Use the product attributes as a condition to restrict Magento international shipping of dangerous or fragile goods with delivery carriers that can handle such packages properly and according to local and international regulations.
Precisely apply restrictions
Restricts shipping methods availability with a near-completely individualized approach
Apply restrictions for store views. Multiple store views can be selected and rules are only applied for products at selected stores.
Restrict shipping methods for customer groups. You can choose one or multiple groups simultaneously to apply the restriction rule.
Create restriction rules for specified carriers as a whole or set restrictions for any of those proposed according to shipping methods. You can specify multiple carriers and their respective methods per each created restriction.
Transparent for customers
Make cart checkout more transparent for customers by providing them with reasons for particular shipping method restrictions.
Compose a custom message to be displayed when a restriction rule is applied. Use this message to stimulate sales by letting customers know how to unblock a certain shipping method.
Leave the restriction message field blank to simply hide the restricted shipping method.
Schedule restriction activation
Activate magento shipping restrictions for a specific date or time. You can set one or multiple days per rule.
Set the exact time of restriction rule activity to more flexibly suit your business needs. Combine it with other conditions to achieve more profitability.
The schedule option is especially handy
Simplify your routine
Spend less time creating identical rules for shipping restrictions. Group a number of geographical shipping zones as one. Include or exclude certain local regions.
Creating shipping restrictions is made easy with the Shipping Area parameter, which simplifies your routine by serving as a template for conditions.
Make each shipping area more detailed by including countries, states, regions, cities, zip codes, etc. Set individual shipping restrictions for remote geographical shipping areas.
Use shipping for marketing
Limit available shipping methods based on the chosen payment method
Use the shipping methods your store provides for marketing purposes and control which delivery methods are available for different payment methods.
For example, you can promote a specific payment method via smartphones by offering a special delivery method for shoppers who use it.
Alternatively, some payment methods can be not optimal for international shipping, or your shop can provide shipping methods that are most suitable for local payments.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Get answers to the most popular questions regarding the Magento 2 Shipping Restrictions module
Can the shipping restriction be applied to particular products?
You can create a shipping restriction rule with conditions that use the attributes of the product that you need to block the shipping for. Use multiple attributes to precisely define the product that requires limited shipping.
Can a customer view the shipping restrictions applied to his or her cart?
Currently the customer has a way of monitoring the applied shipping restrictions if the shipping restriction has an explanatory message regarding the limitation. You have the option to customize this message for every shipping restriction rule you create in your store.
Can the module restrict selected shipping methods on specified days?
In addition to standard Magento conditions, our extension provides two extra conditions for the day of week and time of the day. These two conditions can be used as a schedule option for a shipping restriction to be activated or deactivated. Use these conditions if you need to exclude a shipping method for a particular time period.
Is it possible to entirely restrict shipping to certain regions?
Yes. With this module, you can create a rule that filters out all shipping methods that are used in your store. The filtered shipping methods will not be available for selection by users. Essentially, this means full restriction on shipping to the specified region.
You can specify locations by country, state, city, and zip-code. Use the option Shipping Area to apply an identical restriction rule for several locations.
