I'm in a bit of a bind trying to figure this out.
We have to limit our shipping to a certain area (by postal code) for the products we're seling online.
I've found several addons that seem to handle this but they all require us to upgrade to the Advanced Shopify plan because they all require Real-time carrier shipping.
This makes no sense in my mind and we're not going to be spending $299/month out of the gate.
Does anyone know of a solution out there that would handle this? I have no problem paying for a plugin.
Bonus points if it allows us to, in the future, add products that can be shipped outside this area (as in set the shipping postal codes at the product level).

Just wanted to let you know that we have two other ways in which you can activate the carrier calculated shipping feature.
1. You can switch to annual billing, save 10% on your plan and receive carrier calculated shipping for free!
2. You can add carrier calculated shipping for $20 a month to your current plan.
If either of these options interest you, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can activate the feature for you!
Hope this helps :)
What I could not figure out was how to add this kind of a check with the Order button in the checkout process. My solution will work for most people and I will be happy to share.
You can add carrier calculated rates at $20 to your existing Shopify plan and then proceed with Shipping. Once you have carrier calculated rates enabled, StorePep can help you to hide Shipping for other post codes so that only specific post codes show shipping. With automations rules, this can be achieved. In addition, one can limit Shipping at product level also.
