Conditional activation for shipping

Our conditional activation feature allows you to enable or disable shipping depending on:  

  • The order value or weight
  • The product type, collection, vendor or tags

For general instructions, take a look at our Conditional activation article.



Enable/disable shipping depending on the order value or weight

You can enable or disable shipping depending on the order value, or order weight.

For example, if you want to disable shipping for order values less than $100, you would set it up as below:

Customers that have less than a $100 in the cart will not be able to check out with shipping. 

You can edit the wording of this message in Store Pickup + Delivery > Settings > Text and design.


Enable/disable shipping depending on the product type

You can enable or disable shipping based on the product type. You can read more about product types in Shopify Product type article.

  1. In Store Pickup + Delivery > Settings > Shipping, under Conditional activation, select Product type from the dropdown menu in the first field.
  2. In the second field, add the name of the product type, e.g. Sweets.
    Values added here are case sensitive, so make sure the value matches your product type exactly.
  3. In the last field, you can select to disable or enable shipping for this product type.
    Select Disable to make shipping unavailable if one product with that product type is in the cart.
    Select Enable to make shipping only available if all products in the cart have that product type.
  4. Click Save.

For example, I want to disable shipping for product type Sweets.

When you add the correct values, the text below should read: If customers basket contains a product with the type "Sweets" disable shipping.

These changes will now reflect in the widget, and shipping will be disabled if a product with this product type is in the cart. Your customers will see an error message saying: Sorry, shipping is not available for your selected items.

The wording of this error message can be edited in Store Pickup + Delivery > Settings > Text and design.
