Hide Shipping Methods to a Specific Address Type


In some cases, you may want to hide shipping methods to certain Address Types. The example below shows how to hide a specific shipping method to Commercial locations. ShipperHQ’s Address Type Based Rules and Address Validation functionality cover this need.



This is an example setup process for hiding UPS SurePost, but most FedEx and UPS carrier methods can be hidden for commercial or residential locations.

To begin:

  1. Ensure you have UPS SurePost Carrier set up
  2. Click on Shipping Rules in the left-hand navbar and click the + New  button
  3. On the Basic tab, 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. On the Action tab > Action to Perform panel I Want To… dropdown, select “Hide my selected Shipping Methods”
  6. On the Conditions tab you can further specific what needs to be met in order for this rule’s action to apply
  7. On the Advanced tab > Advanced Conditions panel, Address Type is dropdown, select “Business”
  8. 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.

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