Hide Shipping Methods to a Specific Address Type

Overview

In some cases, you may want to hide shipping methods to certain Address Types. An example is wanting to hide a specific shipping method to Commercial locations. ShipperHQ’s Address Type Based Rules functionality covers this need.

Requirements

Setup

This will walk you though setting up a rule that hides UPS SurePost to a Commercial location.

  1. Ensure you have a UPS SurePost Carrier set up
  2. Click on Carrier Rules in the left-hand navbar > Add New+
  3. In the Basic panel, give the rule a name that is most relevant to you (i.e. Hide SurePost to Businesses)
  4. In the Shipping Methods panel, under Live Shipping Methods Assigned Add UPS SurePost
  5. In the Advanced Conditions panel, select “Commercial” in the Address Type field
  6. In the Actions panel, set Action to Perform to “Hide Shipping Methods”
  7. Save your Carrier Rule

ShipperHQ will now hide UPS SurePost to Commercial locations.

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.

Test Your Rates

Verify that your carriers and rules are working and see how they will display in your checkout right from the ShipperHQ dashboard.
