Restrictions within a shipping rate allow you to describe what conditions must be met for the shipping rate to show at checkout.
Keep in mind:
This restriction has everything to do with the total cost of the order.† Here you can define the minimum amount, maximum amount, or both to create a price range an order must meet in order for this rate to show at checkout.
† cost before any discounts, coupons, or taxes
Similar to value restrictions, weight restrictions allow you to control how much the order must weigh in order for the shipping rate to be shown at checkout.
Some shipping rates should only apply to a specific set of products. That is what product restrictions are for. Here you define what products must - or must not - be present in the order for this shipping rate to show. To match more than one product simply enter them as comma-separated values. These values are case insensitive and any whitespace at the beginning or end of each value will be ignored.
You can define your products by SKU, type, tag, collection, or vendor, then set a condition on when they should show. These conditions come in two varieties: Product is and product is not.
All items in the order must match this list. If any products are ordered that are not on the list, this rate will not show
Product is not:
Any combination of products may be ordered, but if even one of them match your product is not restriction, this rate will not show
Note: If any entry in your restriction contains a comma, please surround it with quotation marks (Example: “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”)
You may also restrict your shipping rate based on what Product Variants are in the cart. You will find “Product Option is” and “Product Option is not” along with all of the other product restrictions. Mostly the same rules above apply.
The main difference when working with product options is you must supply both the option (Size, color, material) and variant to restrict (large, green, plaid) in the left and right fields respectively. Though you may only enter one option to evaluate, you can enter as many values as you wish in a comma separated list.
(This example rate will show as long as any item in the cart is tagged Outdoor, Lawn, or Patio)
For more information about creating a rate that shows as long as one of a specific product is in the order, please see our Product Specific Prices guide.
