Shipping for just a specific area in a province

My company is creating a Shopify for a Florist and want to be able to add shipping, but they want their shop to only be able to ship around town as they can't deliver a bouquet to a place 3 hours away.

I see that you can only set up for a Province, but not pinpoint specific towns that they would deliver to.

Thanks for taking the time to reply!

Hey there Melissa!

Wesley here from the Shopify Team!

So there is a way to pinpoint which areas of a province you want to have a shipping rate to. You will need an app called Better Shipping (https://apps.shopify.com/better-shipping). Better Shipping allows you to set a shipping rate for certian postal codes. It only needs the first three digits of a postal code as well to make things a bit easier. Canada Post has a list of these codes in a PDF you can find here:

Quick side-note on Better Shipping, it does require our Carrier Calculated Shipping feature which is on the Shopify Advanced plan. This feature can actually be added to any Shopify plan for $20/mo, or for free if you were to pay annually rather than monthly!

What if you can limit the deliveries based on post codes. For example, for areas that are 2 hours away, you can define the post code ranges in the Multi Carrier Shipping label app that would limit the shipping to only those areas. Have you tried a similar approach?
