Postcode Shipping

Important!

Before using this app, please check whether you will need to install coding on your ShopWired theme. For more information please click here.

Installation instructions for this app can be found here.



The postcode shipping app allows you to create delivery rates which are only applicable to particular postcodes that you specify when creating each delivery rate.

At checkout, the customer is asked to enter their postcode and the system will only show delivery rates that match that postcode, as shown in this example:


ShopWired account functionality

On installation of the app, you will be able to use the functionality described below to enable delivery rates to be set by customer postcode.


Adding postcodes to your delivery rates

When creating or editing delivery rates you'll notice that there is a new 'Postcodes' field:

In this field, you should enter the postcodes that are applicable to this delivery rate, i.e. what postcode can a customer enter to match with it.

Multiple postcodes can be entered, separated with a comma. (After entering the postcode, you should enter a comma).


Postcode Formats

Postcodes come in a range of formats, e.g. AA99 9AA (where A is a letter and 9 is a number). You can read more about the available postcode formats here.

The postcode shipping app looks at the 'outward code' entered by the customer, e.g. AA99.

Therefore, the postcodes that you enter for your delivery rates should only contain the outward code.

You can either enter a whole outward code, e.g. BB1 (known as the postcode district) or only the letters of the outward code (known as the postcode area), e.g. BB.

At the bottom of this guide you can find the postcodes for Northern Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and the Channel Islands.

Additionally, a list of postcode areas is available here. A list of postcode districts is available here.


An Example

Here's an example of a delivery rate that covers quite a few postcodes:

Customers that enter a postcode of SY99 1AA will match with this delivery rate because it's configured for SY99.

Customers that enter a postcode of SY98 1AA will not match because it's not configured for SY98.

A customer could enter any postcode which starts with DG.


ALL and ALLEXCEPT

There are also two special text strings you can use to save you entering every available postcode district/area.

Warning!

'ALL' and 'ALLEXCEPT' should not be used on the same delivery rate.

You can enter ALL and any postcode entered by the customer will match with that delivery rate.

You can enter ALLEXCEPT and the delivery rate will be applicable to any postcode that isn't already configured in another delivery rate.


London Postcodes

When configuring postcodes for London districts which have the structure of letter-number-letter or letter-letter-number-letter for the full outward code (e.g. W1W or EC2Y), you should either configure rates for the entirety of the postcode area (e.g. W or EC) or for the specific district (e.g. W1W or EC2Y). You should not configure rates for just part of the outward code (e.g. W1). Configuring rates for just part of the outward code will not work.
