Dear Forum members, I am trying hard to find the solution of replacing the text box of City Name to dropdown of only one city - Ahmedabad as we are currently launching the services of online cake delivery in ahmedabad only with subsidiary of http://www.midnightcake.com which is http://www.midnightcake.in which is using Shopify platform.

I found in some of the discussions that it is not availble as a feature from Shopify, which is a big surprise to me. A platform of the size of Shopify is not having the feature to limit the delivery city? I am sure there must be some way to answer this question. Requesting the development team to look into it. As it is a fundamental feature for local stores who are not delivering in multiple cities and areas.  The delivery charge should be able to configure with specific area of city. Distant locations should be charged high delivery charges and nearby areas should be cheaper comparatively.

Thanks again in advance for everything.

Hello, I did not found any such options to select in backend. It would be of great help if you can show the steps in details. 

Thanks :)

@Malay, you can ffind it under Settings/Shipping Zones. But apparently, you can limit only upto province level.. i.e. Gujarat

Right. Exactly it is limited to Gujarat only. We need it one level deeper till Ahmedabad. As Gujarat is a big state, we want to start off with just one city i.e. Ahmedabad which is in Gujarat. But there are several other cities like Surat, Baroda, Rajkot which are also big ones. So we do not want the customers to select anything else but Ahmedabad only.

I hope you got the point. I wonder how a platform like Shopify cannot have such simple thing? I am sure if they can have State as dropdown, they can also have one level more below state as a dropdown list. Its too easy. But that single point can be a decision making point.

I completely agree... I'm struggling with the same issue. I want to supply only in Delhi NCR and there seems to be no provision for the same.
