  • You will need to fill the Carrier information out. Make sure to attach the specific origin you want to make the local deliveries with the Attached Origins dropdown.
  • Next under the Shipping Rates panel, you can set a base shipping price and decide if you want that to be Per Order, Item or Package.

  • Under the Display Restrictions panel, we need to set a Zone that only determines the area you want to deliver. This can be done by city, or zip code. I did this one by zip code, the same principal can be applied to cities.
