Very often shipping carriers put certain restrictions based on shipping destination, product weight, product quantity and so on. It's very difficult to comply with these limitations without losing some important functionality.
Let's say you need to disable free shipping for Alaska and Hawaii, however with current functionality it is possible to limit shipping only by country. It makes no business sense to disable free shipping for the whole of the United States just to limit use of this method for Alaska and Hawaii. However it makes even less sense to lose money on shipping products to Alaska and Hawaii.
In some cases it is against law to deliver some products to certain regions. For example, it is illegal to ship alcohol to Texas from a different state. So to block shipping of alcohol to Texas again you would need to block shipping for the whole United States.
With Shipping Restrictions you can properly maintain such limitations. E.g. block use of methods only for certain states or provinces instead of whole countries. Use conditions with order total, number of products, weight, payment method, zip code, etc.
Restrict usage of shipping methods for particular products by brand, SKU, material, in other words - by any product attribute. In addition, you can limit access to shipping methods by customer groups and by store view.
Ability to block separate methods of shipping carriers.
Some carriers may have several shipping methods - ground mail, standard air mail, express mail, etc. With the extension you can limit only the method you need instead of blocking the whole carrier with all its methods. E.g. set short-life products not to be shipped by ground mail methods, which take at least a few days. You can choose whether to apply the restrictions only to front end orders or to backend orders as well.
Make your shipping process both legal and effective.
The module enables you to limit usage of shipping methods by a huge number of criteria to make sure your delivery process is absolutely legal and meets your business requirements. At the same time you can make the restrictions to be very flexible and get applied only when necessary. For example it is illegal to ship certain products internationally. You can block international shipping for the whole catalog, however this would badly hurt your business. With Shipping Restrictions you can put the limitation only on the products in question.
Set shipping restrictions based on order total, weight, zip code, region, etc.
You can lose money with some shipping methods when orders are either too light or too heavy. So it makes perfect sense to block these shipping methods for very small or very heavy orders. You can also block delivery to some distant states or provinces, e.g. Alaska or Yukon.
Use product attributes to set restriction conditions for shipping methods.
You can use any product attributes when specifying conditions for restriction of shipping methods. For example, you can set products of some premium brand not to be delivered by ground mail.
Conditions "starts from" and "ends with".
Especially useful for zip codes, so you can specify that a restriction should apply to all zip codes starting from '123' or ending with 'XYZ'.
Limit use of shipping methods by customer groups.
Sometimes store owners want to give access to certain shipping methods based on customer group, e.g. free shipping only to wholesale customers. You can do this with the module.
Restrict shipping methods by store view and website.
This feature can be very useful when you have a separate website or store view for each region or customer group.
Set restrictions for backordered items.
For example you can block next day delivery for backordered items, as obviously it's impossible to ship the items you don't have on the same day.
Create very flexible shipping restrictions.
The module enables you to use any combination of conditions based on store views, customer groups, order and product attributes. So you can create shipping rules which limit exactly what is needed and nothing more. For example, you can restrict flat rate shipping for Hawaii for cases, when the product is fragile, weighs more than 5 pounds and order total is less than $100.
