Default Does X-Cart Allow Local/Regional Delivery Options?

Hello there...

I run a small plant nursery specializing in landscaping trees and shrubs. I currently have no plans to ship these plants nationwide. I want to keep things local, but I like X-Cart as a way of keeping my customers informed about my current plant stock inventory and it would be nice to also give them the opportunity to buy their plants online, if they'd like.

I want to offer local delivery, similar to a florist, I suppose. This would be the only "shipping" option I'd allow during checkout.

Also, delivery would be restricted to probably a 50 mile radius max.


I saw that X-Cart offers "zones" for shipping.

Will X-Cart allow me to set a delivery charge of $10 if the delivery is between 0-5 miles of my home Zip code; $15 if delivery is 5-10 miles, $20 if delivery is 10-15, etc?

What this means also is that only people located in specific Zip codes would be allowed to submit orders via X-Cart.

Is what I have in mind possible?

You cannot set mileage delivery restrictions. Not unless you get this custom coded.

You can set zipcode delivery restrictions though.
Say zipcodes 1000 to 1020 is $5, 1021 to 1100 is $10.
Any order outside these zip codes will have no shipping and checkout will be impossible.

It is also good to know shipping setup is "restrictions in" not "restrictions out". You can set shipping method/cost within area but you cannot set it anywhere but that area...
So if you want to set shipping for all the FL excluding 1-2 zipcodes you have to explicitly specify the zipcodes shipping is allowed to.
