Restrict Specific Methods for Certain Products

Overview

SCENARIO: There are 2 scenarios relating to this:

  1. You want the cart to show certain shipping method for specific products only, and hiding it other times. (i.e.: only show 2 day when certain products are in cart)
  2. You want the cart to always hide certain methods when a product is added to the cart. (i.e. always hide Ground when certain products are in cart) This might include hiding/disabling all shipping methods when a certain product is in the cart.

In ShipperHQ this can be set up by hiding certain methods when any product that doesn’t get this method is in the cart.

Steps

Part 1: Create a Shipping Group

  1. Click on “Shipping Groups” on the left nav and add a new one. Don’t worry about any of the advanced settings. Make a name for your shipping group. For this example, we’re naming it “QUICK”

Part 2: Create the New Shipping Rule

Scenario 1: Only Show method when specific item in the cart; hide it all other times.

  1. Click on “Shipping Rules” on the left nav, and then click “+New” button.
  2. In the Basic tab, enter a name for this rule, something appropriate for you.
  3. Under the Shipping Methods section, choose the shipping methods that will be hidden if the Shipping Group you set up in Part 1 is NOT in the cart. For this example, that would be our 2nd Day method.
  4. In the Actions panel, find the drop down called “Action to Perform” and choose “Hide my selected Shipping Methods”
  5. In the Conditions tab, find the drop down Shipping Group(s) Include ALL and select “All products not assigned to to a Shipping Group”.
    If you have other Shipping Groups that are not the “QUICK” one created in part 1, select those as well.
  6. Save and test the rule.

2nd Day shipping will now be hidden unless the Shipping Group “QUICK” is in the cart.

Scenario 2: Always hide method when specific item in the cart; show it all other times.

  1. Click on “Shipping Rules” on the left nav, and then click “+New” button
  2. In the Basic tab, enter a descriptive name for this rule.
  3. Under the Shipping Methods section, choose the shipping methods that will be HIDDEN if the Shipping Group you set up in Part 1 IS in the cart. For this example, let’s say we want to hide our Ground method.
  4. In the Action tab under the section “Action to Perform” choose “Hide my selected Shipping Methods”
  5. In the Conditions tab, find the drop down Shipping Group(s) Include One or More and select your Shipping Group from Part 1 (in our example, that’s “QUICK”).
  6. Save the rule.

Ground shipping will now be hidden when the Shipping Group “QUICK” is in the cart.
