Your customers must have a place to check if delivery is available at their location.
So with the pin code search box, they can enter their location area name or pin code.
And see complete delivery details. You can enable which fields you want to show.
This pin code search box can be added to any page using the layout.
Also, many eCommerce websites a box just above add to cart.
So we have a special pin code search box that can be added above add to cart button on the product page.
Pincode check during account creation & checkout registration
Some store needs that customers should not be able to register if a pin code is not possible to deliver. For this, we have a registration check.
Further, on that, we have also had checkout page checking. So you allow customers to register with, not on the list but you don't allow them to check out.
So you can enable the feature you need or enable both of them.
Payment method based on pincode
Sometimes you need specific payment methods as per customer location.
With this feature, you can do it easily.
So you can assign payment method A, B to certain pin code.
And payment method C, D to some other pin code.
Cash on delivery based on pincode + COD Charges
With the above feature i.e "Payment method based on pin code". You can set up Cash for delivery to certain pin codes. So COD will only be available for those pin codes.
Besides above if you want to have COD charges you can have that as well.
You can add COD charges per pin code.
Shipping method based on pincode
Sometimes you need specific shipping methods as per customer location.
With this feature, you can do it easily.
So you can assign shipping methods A, B to certain pin code.
And shipping method C, D to some other pin code.
Shipping Charges per pincode
Some locations can be delivered free of charge ie. No charges for shipping.
But some location needs extra shipping charges.
So it is possible to add different shipping charges to a different pin code.
International shipping charges
When you deliver outside the country also. It should also be possible.
So to cover this, we have added country based shipping charges.
So based on shipping address country, shipping charges would show.
Payment method / shipping method when pincode not in list
This is a powerful feature for those who understand it.
With this feature, you don't need to enter a complete list of pin code of your country.
Suppose you have a small list of pin codes where payment and shipping methods are different.
And for others payment and shipping methods are common.
So you can just upload your small list of pin codes and assign the desired payment and shipping method.
For rest, you can use this feature. So it would assign this payment and shipping method as it is not on the list.
So the benefit has you only uploaded a small list of pin codes and not for the whole country.
And for others, it automatically assigned payment and shipping methods based on your selection.
Popup pincode search box
If you want to ask for customer location on customer visit then popup feature can be enabled.
So the customer would be greeted with a popup to enter their location.
Wildcard pin code checking
With this, you don't need to enter all versions of the pin code if pin codes where you deliver has spaces or dash. Example: a pin code of the UK is somewhat like AB1 BN1, AN1-221, Etc.
You can see above there are space and dash in between. So the customer can write any version of the pin code. Ex: AB1221,AB1 221,AB1-221, etc
It is not possible to enter all. So you will need to enter just one version without dash and space. So in the pin code list, you will enter AB1221 and the extension would check for all combinations.
Customize colors as per theme
For the settings page, you can control the colors of the Pincode search box.
So it matches your theme perfectly.
