Hide Shipping Method on Certain Day of the Week

Overview

In some cases, you may want to hide shipping methods to certain days of the week. An example is wanting to hide a specific shipping method on Saturdays. ShipperHQ’s Day-Based Rules functionality covers this need and is part of our Date & Time Advanced Feature. Please note, you must have the Calendar enabled on Date&Time.

Requirements

Setup

This will walk you though setting up a rule that hides FedEx Home Delivery when delivering on a Saturday.

  1. Ensure you have a FedEx Carrier set up with Home Delivery enabled as a Shipping Method
  2. Click on Carrier Rules in the left-hand navbar
  3. Create a new Carrier Rule and name it something that’s relevant to you
  4. In the Applicable Shipping Methods panel select FedEx Ground
  5. In the Advanced Conditions panel, select “Saturday” in the Applicable Delivery Days field
  6. In the Actions panel, set Action to Perform to “Hide Shipping Methods”
  7. Save your Carrier Rule

ShipperHQ will now hide FedEx Ground when delivering on a Saturday.

Other Options

This capability can be combined with any other Conditions on your carrier rule to make this apply in the specific scenario you need it to apply. Additionally, you can discount, override/set, or hide certain shipping options on specific days using other Actions.
