This guide will cover how to add postcode rules to your shipping rules in Cloud Commerce Pro.
This guide assumes you are already familiar with creating and editing shipping rules. If you need more general information on shipping, please consult the guide below:
1. Admin Centre
From the Admin Centre in Cloud Commerce Pro, click the "Configuration" button.
2. Configuration Menu
On the configuration menu, first click "Shipping" to drill into that section and then click "Rules".
3. Select Rule
Find the shipping rule you want to add a postcode rule to and click the "Edit" button.
4. Edit Shipping Rule
Head to the bottom for the "Add New Rule" section.
Use the first drop down on the left to select "Postcode" as the attribute you want to make a rule for.
The second drop down controls the operation of the rule. For a postcode rule you can choose between "Contains" and "Does not contain" depending on your needs.
5. Enter Postcode
The box on the far right is reserved for the value of the rule, in this case our postcode.
All UK postcodes are broke down into two parts, a 2-4 digit outward code and a 3 digit inward code.
When adding a postcode as a shipping rule you can use as much or as little of the postcode as you need. In most cases the outward code will suffice. If including the full postcode, ensure there are no spaces.
If you need to add multiple postcodes, these must all be included in the same rule separated by a semi-colon, as shown below.
6. Add Rule & Save
With all the details of your rule complete you can click the "Add" button. It will now show in the list of included rules.
Remember to hit the "Save" button to lock in your new postcode rule.
As you can also only have one postcode rule, if you need more simply clone the main shipping rule, delete the shipping rule entry for the postcode and add a new one.
