Restrict Shipping to certain postcodes

Hi Guys,

I run a food website in which only certain foods can be delivered to certain locations. EG: cheese can only be delivered to metro areas as they can be delivered overnight. Anywhere outside of metro the product cannot be shipped to as it won’t last more than 24 hours. Same goes for meat, eggs, etc.

Is there a way to tell Magento/Australia Post module to only allow the shipment of xxxx to certain postcodes?

We are using a dropship module so an issue might be that the products are being shipped from different locations. So the cheese might come from VIC, but a sauce might be in Sydney and they all make up one order. Most suppliers use AusPost but we could create a shipping method specific to each supplier who needs to restrict shipping to certain locations.

We are running the Fontis AusPost ext.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

That sounds quite complex!
But if anyone can solve it, it would be Karen at www.webshopapps.com They have recently opened an Australian office and are doing some magic with Australian shipping issues.
I strongly suspect you are looking at a custom module…

Hi!

Now you can use finished extension Shipping Restrictions.
It allows you to Set shipping restrictions based on zip code, region, order total, weight, etc and also you can make them very flexible.
Check out the extension Shipping Restrictions on

Zones Manager extension makes possible to rectrict certain product categories or product by zones (countries / states / regions/ zip codes/ zip code ranges). Actually, it brings far more features with regards to managing geo zones, so it might be interesting to you:
