What is Shipping Area?

A shipping area is a condition based on a combination of countries, regions, postal codes or address lines assigned to the shipping option and method. You can customize shipping areas to set rules and restrictions or offer special rates and shipping methods based on the customer's location. For example, set limits for entire countries, or restrict shipping locations down to zip codes.

Why Do You Need Shipping Areas?

The Shipping Areas feature is a great choice when you ship to distant states like Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Being separated from the United States, they require specific handling when it comes to shipping. Assigning countries to a different shipping area allows you to create custom scenarios, offer unique shipping options, or restrict deliveries to these areas altogether. Combining this feature with Shipping Rules allows for fine-tuning the different shipping options per your stock category. Shipping Areas are available for Magento 2, Shopify and WooCommerce.
