Limited possibilities to set rules

By Default, Magento 2 comes with limited possibilities to set various rules for shipping methods. This causes the inconvenience for store owners in many real situations which some shipping methods should be restricted to customers.

Unable to use shipping methods as an element in marketing campaigns

In some special occasions, store owners would like to offer shipping methods such as free shipping fee, fixed rate to attract customers. However, in Magento 2 default, this is impossible.


  • Store owners can set unlimited rules for shipping methods
  • Increase sales in marketing events with suitable shipping methods
  • Process orders quickly thanks to appropriate shipping methods
  • Improve customer experience during shopping at the store

Magento 2 Shipping Restrictions Highlight Features

Set shipping restrictions based on cart attributes

With Magento 2 Shipping Restrictions by Mageplaza, the store owners can segment shipment methods depending on cart features including:

Subtotal: Total value of the shopping cart
Total items: Total item quantity of a shopping cart
Total weight: Total weight of all items in a cart

For example, with the order of more than 200$, customers will get free shipping and with the order of less than 20$, the fixed rate is 5$ is applied.

Limit shipment by payment methods

If customers use different payment methods, they will be allowed to select different shipping methods.

For example, if customers select payment via Paypal (the international payment method), the shipping method should be Worldwide FedEx or Express. Otherwise, if customers select payment is Cash on Delivery (for domestic delivery), the shipping method should be Home Delivery.

Restrict shipping methods by shipping locations

Depending on different shipping information, specific shipping methods will be visible to customers and ready-to-use. The shipping information which decides shipping methods including:

Shipping postcode
Shipping region
Shipping state/ province
Shipping country

For example, if the shipping locations is the inner city, the shipping fee is free. Otherwise, customers from city outskirts will be charged.

Restrict Shipping depending on product attributes

Specific product attributes can be conditions to determine shipping methods accordingly. With the high-value or limited items which store owners would like to prevent risky possibilities, the shipping methods should be high-class one such as FedEx, Express.

The appropriate shipping methods will support store owners to make sure the proper delivery to customers’ locations.

Schedule to activate shipping methods

One of the most noticeable of Shipping Restrictions for Magento 2 is the activation schedule function. The store can set the time to activate the rules based on specific time. The details of the running schedule include start/end date, weekdays, start/end time so store owners can apply the shipping rules at the exact time as they expect easily.

This feature is helpful to stores on special holidays and occasions to suit various marketing campaigns. For example, free shipping for all orders in the inner city at Store’s Birthday celebration.

This extension works better when used alongside the Magento 2 Store Locator or Magento 2 Store Pickup Extension.

Apply both for backend orders and storefront purchases

The flexibility of Shipping Restrictions is that it allows the shipping restriction to apply for both the backend orders (for admin only) and storefront purchases.

From the storefront, the shipping methods can be displayed at View Cart Page, Checkout Page and One Step Checkout Page if One Step Checkout is installed).

The application for backend orders is used in some cases. Customers would like to change the shipping methods and the store admins will update from the backend. Another case may be for exceptional orders with very high value or from a special customer, and the shipping methods should be visible by store admins only.

Simple and Easy

We are in the business of firearms and firearms accessories. When it comes to shipping firearms there are regulations in place that require certain shipping types for various things. This extension has made it possible for us to limit those products to the exact shipping types allowed and it is simple to configure!

Use Cases of Magento 2 Shipping Restriction

Use case 1: Set new shipping restrictions based on cart attributes

Business goals:

  • Set rules of shipping that change when the consumer's cart changes.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • You simply can't set shipping obligations that involve a shopping cart's status.


  • Let you segment types of carts with corresponding shipment options.
  • Set rules based on the cart's subtotal - the total value of the shopping cart.
  • Set rules based on the cart's total item - the number of items inside.
  • Set rules based on the cart's total weight - the weight of all items in the cart.

For example, with carts that weigh more than 10kg and worth more than $200, you can add more shipping fees and a new carrier that can handle heavy shipment. For carts under 10kg, the fees and the number of carriers stay the same.

Use case 2: Set shipping limits based on payment methods

Business goals:

  • Set rules of shipping that change with the payment selection of the customers.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • You can't set shipping rules that change when buyers select different payments.


  • Set up shipping methods that are available when the condition of payment method is met.

For example, if your customers choose to use PayPal - an international payment option, you can show the shipment as Worldwide FedEx or Express.

Use case 3: Set shipping rules for different locations

Business goals:

  • Set rules of shipping restrictions based on the locations.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • A default Magento store has limited possibilities to set rules for shipping with locations.


  • You can restrict the delivery options by the location of the buyer.
  • Decide the shipping methods based on post code, region, state, and country.

For example, with an order from the same city of your store, you can offer free shipping. But for other states of your country, you can set different delivery fees.

Use case 4: Limit delivery options for different product attributes

Business goals:

  • Set rules of shipping limits depending on the product attributes.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • You have no feature to set delivery methods based on item attributes with a default Magento store.


  • You can set delivery conditions that meet the certain product category, value, brands, availability, and more.

For example, if your store offers limited items that require risk prevention, include a special delivery option with high-class services. A jewelry store may relate to this situation.

Use case 5: Automate the shipping process to create a better shopping experience

Business goals:

  • Apply the shipping restrictions to all processes of the business.
  • Allow customers to understand restrictions and available delivery options.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • It's impossible to automate many rules of shipping into the shopping process.


  • Let you flexibly apply many shipping rules at once in the backend.
  • Automatically display these rules as shipping options in the front end, on the View Cart page and Checkout page.
  • Buyers can choose from a number of delivery options right before making a purchase.

For example, you can combine the rules so when a cart is worth more than $500, includes limited items, and weighs less than 5kg can receive the best delivery methods available at the Checkout page.

Use case 6: Incorporate marketing events with flexible delivery methods

Business goals:

  • Provide special delivery options or restrictions during marketing events such as Christmas, New Years, etc.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • You can't set a new shipping rule with customized time on a default Magento store.


  • Let you set the time to activate shipping restrictions on specific dates with start and end time.
  • Easily match a shipping rule with a certain period of time.

For example, you can limit the shipping options on New Year's Eve to make sure customers won't be surprised during the holiday.

All of the feature updates plan and status will be updated as soon as possible in our public Trello.
