With the shipping restrictions extension you can create shipping rules, and add a list of all banned shipping zip codes, shipping states and shipping countries where products cannot be delivered.

Shipping Limit Notification

After you create restriction rules, and a user tries to add a shipping address which has restrictions set for one of the products in their cart, the user will receive a notification both in the shopping cart itself and in the checkout saying the product has a shipping restriction.

This will prevent them from finishing the checkout process with the restricted product and keep restricted goods from being sold.

Magento Adjustable Shipping Restrictions Notifications

The shipping restriction notifications are shown in two places:

  • Shipping notification in the shopping cart – When a customer enters their shipping data in the “Estimate shipping and tax” on the shopping cart page, they will receive a shipping restrictions notification in the shipping estimate results and in the list of items in the cart. This shipping notification only appears for items that have shipping restrictions.
  • Shipping notification during checkout – During the checkout process, the customer will not be able to select a particular shipping method due to breached shipping restrictions and will see the shipping restrictions notice.

Shipping Rules Module Integration with the Multi-Vendor Marketplace

The Shipping Rules extension is the perfect solution for letting marketplace vendors apply shipping restrictions on selected items in their catalog.

It integrates with the Multi-Vendor Marketplace seamlessly. The Admin no longer has to worry if prohibited items will be shipped in their marketplace store!

Using the Magento Shipping Rules Extension

  • Prohibited Product Restrictions – Restrict shipping for any prohibited products
  • Pinpoint Restricted Locations – Restrict shipping for certain locations (for example, outside the United States)
  • Marketplace Multi-Vendor Integration – Marketplace vendors can restrict items to specific destinations based on shipping parameters
