Shipping Zones

Get the most geo flexibility for your shipping by assigning methods and rates to specific Shipping Zones (Areas) or by creating location-based rules and restrictions with Calcurates.

What is Shipping Zone?

A shipping zone 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 zones 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 Zones?

The Shipping Zones 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 zone 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 Zones are available for Magento 2, Shopify and WooCommerce.
