Local Delivery Postcode Range Restrictions

Hi

I have setup local delivery for a client in the UK. They want to deliver to anyone in the postcode areas PL1 *** - PL9 *** so I have setup as:

PL1 *, PL2 *, PL3 *, PL4 *, PL5 *, PL6 *, PL7 *, PL8 *, PL9 *

The only trouble is, postcodes exist for PL10 and up which are being picked up by this filter. Is there a way of writing the range above which restricts PL10 ***? I have tried adding a space to conform to the postcode format but it is being ignored. Does the system use regex?!

Thanks

Gareth

You'll have to just define the entire list.

Submit feedback for the docs at the bottom of the page https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/shipping/setting-up-and-managing-your-shipping/local-methods/loca...

 

 

For some reason they chose to do a global match with the space character itself which confuses matters.

Normally Asterisks in match systems are used to match everything from that character position on.

Maddeningly to try and test things when saving it will also strip spaces out, so if you try "PL3 " it gets stripped to "PL3"

And of course negation doesn't work "-PL31"

@PaulNewton - yeah, seemed to be ignoring the spaces. Full list not really an option! Feedback going in!…
