Shipping Restrictions | v1.2.2
Looking for a tool to upgrade your Magento with custom delivery limitations? Due to a highly adjustable Shipping Restrictions Magento module you will limit usage of shipping methods by a huge number of criteria to make sure your delivery process is absolutely legal and meets your business needs.
With the extension you can limit shipping methods by country, product and customer attributes, order total, weight and other shipping parameters. Apart from that, flexible settings let you either restrict a particular shipping method or block the whole carrier with all its methods.
Extremely flexible conditions for restrictions setup
IMPORTANT: The Shipping Restrictions extension lets you create a great variety of flexible condition combinations to restrict particular shipping methods or block whole carriers. If you need to modify live shipping rates provided by carriers please take a look at the Shipping Rules module.
Create restrictions based on purchase history, shipping and order info
In some cases delivery of extra light or heavy orders may become highly unprofitable for your store. So, it makes sense to block corresponding shipping methods for very small or very heavy orders. You can also block delivery to some distant states or provinces, e.g. Alaska or Yukon or use other Magento shipping conditions (weight, order total, address line, zip code, region, average order value, order status etc).
Use product attributes to set restrictions for shipping methods
Select any product attributes when specifying conditions for shipping methods restriction. For example, you can set products of some premium brands not to be delivered by ground mail.
Restrict shipping on particular days
Choose days of the week to restrict shipping. Set time intervals during which specified shipping methods will be blocked.
Use customer attributes to create shipping rules
Apply customer attributes restriction rules reneration. Use attributes like customer group, date of user registration, date of birth, gender, name and many others to set up special shipping conditions for individual customers.
Conditions 'starts from' and 'ends with'
Preset your Magento to restrict shipping by a postcode. For instance, you can specify that a restriction should be applied to all zip codes starting from '123' or ending with 'XYZ'.
Advanced options for targeted restriction rules
Include taxes and discounts into subtotal
Let's say you would like to limit free shipping for orders with subtotal under 100. A customer can add products worth 110 to cart and then apply a 20% coupon. If you have this option activated, Magento free shipping won't be applied to such order, as subtotal after discount would be less than 100.
Restrict shipping methods for custom regions
With the extension you can arrange countries in custom groups and apply shipping restrictions to the whole region with just one rule.
Specify shipping method as carrier::method
The shipping limit option lets you restrict only particular shipping methods of a certain carrier. For example, you can work with DHL but restrict DHL::ground methods.
Set restrictions for back-ordered items
Due to the shipping restrictions Magento tool you can easily block shipping methods for back-order products. For example, block 'next day delivery' or 'same day delivery' for back-ordered items.
Restrict shipping with a coupon
With this feature you can restrict or enable necessary shipping methods after customers submit specific coupons. E.g. You offer free shipping and promo discounts in your store, but don't want customers to use both of the bonuses together. With the shipping restrictions module you can implement 2 scenarios:
- Restrict free shipping when a particular promo coupon is used
- If you don’t usually ship for free, you can offer your customers free shipping as a bonus when they use coupons
Disable shipping methods for particular customer groups
Restrict specified shipping methods based on any customer group you need. E.g. free shipping only to wholesale or retail customers.
Restrict shipping methods by store view and website
This feature will be extremely useful when you have a separate website or a store view for each region or a customer group.

Online Extension User Guide
Although the app is not unique at the market, it appeared to be the one that worked the way we expected. The support team assisted me when I was totally run down trying to configure the settings. And now it runs perfectly!
1. Only ship this product via free shipping
2. Don’t allow any other product to be shipped via free shipping
3. Only allow this product to be shipped to the Continental US
The shipping restrictions extension allowed us to do all three of these things. In addition, a nice, neat error message appears when someone tries to ship outside the Continental US warning the person to call the store to arrange shipping.
We also paired this extension with the Shipping Per Product extension, which allowed us to set individual shipping rates for products but not allow any products to have individual shipping rates that we did not want to have it.
This was the first Magento extension I had installed and installation was straightforward and took only a few minutes.

I needed this extension to put a weight limit on shipping with a client of mine, and for it to display an error message when the limit was over.
Came across this extension, bought it knowing how good of a reputation Amasty has (a great one) and it worked EXACTLY as I wanted it to.
Wasn't able to rate developer support as I didn't need it!
Would definitely recommend this.
I wish there were video tutorials for configuration. Please consider adding them.
I would like more conditions, namely the condition to restrict methods by day of the week (so I can further customize ground 1 day versus ground 2 day) and possibly the ability to recognize holidays or other blackout days.
Other than that, excellent little addon.
Since we've purchased this mod I've never heard any complaints from our sales manages. It runs like a well oiled machine. Looking forward for more updates. Thank you, sirs!
Worked straight out of the box.
Would be perfect if the error messages displayed were not limited in length !
It took us a couple of hours to cope with the rules and restrict the delivery to some regions. It’s also very convenient to disable shipping for different store views – therefore, the app meets all our needs. It does what it promises, but it would be awesome if you released more updates with new restriction possibilities.
Kudos for Amasty!
Thanks a lot for the fast support.
The other problem was a bit more complicated. We sell products that are manufactured to the customer's specifications when we send the order to the supplier. Because it's not possible to know in advance how long the manufacturing process will take, customers get upset when they select three day, second day or next day deliver and expect the product to ship the next day.
Since these products are going to have their own attribute sets, I was able to set up rule based on product attribute sets that only allows shipping by UPS/FedEx Ground or Priority Mail.
The only thing that would make this extension better would be the ability to set a condition based on a specific product attribute.
The extension works great Tons of options to restrict by, including any of your custom attributes.
