Shipping-Specific Limits:

  • Enable shipping section: Activate this feature to define minimum and maximum limits for various aspects of orders associated with specific shipping methods, instances, or zones.
  • Flexible control: Choose the level of granularity that best suits your needs. You can set limits for:
    • Per shipping method (e.g., minimum order value for express shipping)
    • Per shipping instance (e.g., minimum weight for a specific flat rate box)
    • Per shipping zone (e.g., minimum order quantity for a specific delivery area)

Advanced Shipping Customization:

  • Shipping messages: Enable separate messages for shipping restrictions within the “Messages” section. This allows you to clearly communicate requirements to customers based on their chosen shipping option.
  • Hide unavailable methods: Streamline the checkout process by hiding shipping methods that wouldn’t be applicable due to order limits from other sections (e.g., user roles, product limits).
  • Special cases: The plugin can handle non-standard shipping methods. Simply identify them using a split character (“:”) and configure limits accordingly.

Tailored Limits for Different Shipping Options:

  • Order total (sum)
  • Quantity of items
  • Weight
  • Volume

  • Product categories
