Adjust shipping process to your business needs and legal requirements
Block separate methods of shipping carriers
Some carriers may have several shipping methods - ground mail, standard air mail, express mail, etc. With the extension you can limit only the method you need instead of blocking the whole carrier with all its methods. E.g. set short-life products not to be shipped by ground mail methods, which take at least a few days. You can choose whether to apply the restrictions only to front end orders or to backend orders as well.
Make your shipping process both legal and effective
Limit usage of shipping methods by a huge number of criteria to make sure your delivery process is absolutely legal and meets your business requirements. Make the restrictions to be flexible and get applied only when necessary.
For example it is illegal to ship certain products internationally. Native Magento international shipping restrictions allow you block shipping for the whole catalog, however this would badly hurt your business. With Shipping Restrictions you can put the limitation only on the products in quote.
Limit shipping methods only when necessary
Use any combination of conditions based on store views, customer groups, order and product attributes. You can create shipping rules which limit exactly what is needed and nothing more. For example, you can restrict flat rate shipping for Hawaii for cases, when the product is fragile, weighs more than 5 pounds and order total is less than $100.
Extremely flexible functionality for restrictions setup
Create shipping restrictions based on Magento shipping weight, order total, address line, zip code, region, etc.
You can lose money with some shipping methods when orders are either too light or too heavy. So it makes perfect sense to block these 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.
Use product attributes to set restriction conditions for shipping methods
You can use any product attributes when specifying conditions for restriction of shipping methods. For example, you can set products of some premium brand not to be delivered by ground mail.
Use customer attributes for creating shipping rules
Along with product attributes you can apply customer attributes for shipping rule conditions. Various attributes concerning customer group, date of user registration, date of birth, gender, name and many others are at your service. Thereby you're able to set up special shipping conditions for individual customers.
Ability to 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 the cart and then apply 20% coupon. If you have this option activated, Magento free shipping will not apply to such order, as subtotal after discount would be less than 100.
Conditions "starts from" and "ends with"
Especially useful for zip codes, so you can specify that a restriction should apply to all zip codes starting from '123' or ending with 'XYZ'.
Disable shipping method for particular customer groups
Sometimes store owners want to give access to certain shipping methods based on customer group in Magento, e.g. free shipping only to wholesale customers. You can do this with the module.
Restrict shipping methods by store view and website
This feature can be very useful when you have a separate website or store view for each region or customer group.
Set restrictions for back-ordered items
For example you can block next day delivery for back-ordered items, as obviously it's impossible to ship the items you don't have on the same day.
Restrict shipping on particular days
Now you've got the opportunity to choose particular days of the week to restrict shipping with the rule.
Specify shipping method as carrier::method
With new shipping limit option you can restrict only particular shipping methods of a certain carrier. For example, you can work with DHL but restrict DHL::ground methods.
Restrict or allow shipping with coupon
Now you can specify restrictions that will apply when your customers use coupons. Let’s say you have a possibility of free shipping in your store, and you have implemented coupons for your customers to get them to purchase more. With shipping restrictions module in this situation you can implement 2 scenarios:
- Restrict free shipping when the 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

Online Extension User Guide
- I’ve created the rule for particular categories, but it doesn’t work with configurable products.
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.
