With our delivery validation feature, you can check if the customer is eligible for delivery. Depending on the postcode entered in the widget, a matching delivery location will be selected.
Partial postal code matching checks the postal/zip code that your customers entered in the widget. That postal code will need to match one of the partial postal codes you entered in your location settings.
Use this method if you have a long list of postal codes you deliver to.
To learn more about other delivery validation methods, take a look at our Delivery validation article.

How does partial postal code matching work?
When you enable the partial postal code matching, we will add a field to the Local delivery section of our widget.
You will need to enter eligible postal codes in the location settings.
Your customers will need to enter their postal code in our widget to check if they're eligible for delivery.
Examples of partial postal codes
Partial matching is used when you deliver to a lot of postal codes—you can then make them all available with just a few entries within a location.
You can enter any set of numbers/letters within your location's settings.
Value in location settings
90210, 90211, 90212, 902 AAA
11, 100, 123456, 1A28
SW1 AAA, SW10 AAA, SW11KGH, SW12
If your country doesn't use postal codes, you can use our postal code matching method to serve as a city name/district matching method. Take a look at our Delivery validation by city name article for more information.
