With our delivery validation feature, you can validate if the customer is eligible for delivery.

Exact postal code matching method checks the postal/zip code that your customers entered in the widget. That postal code will need to exactly match one of the postal codes you entered in your location settings.

This method should be used if you deliver to a couple of postal/zip codes. If you deliver to a long list of eligible postal codes, our Partial matching method may be a better option.

Please note that we don't support overlapping postal codes—each of your locations needs to have a unique set of postal codes.

To learn more about other delivery validation methods, take a look at our Delivery validation article.
