What is the need for Magento 2 Payment Restriction & Shipping Restriction module?
The owner of the store occasionally wants to restrict the use of particular shipping and payment methods for each product and category. But in default Magento, the store owner cannot restrict the use of shipping and payment methods for individual products or categories. Payment and shipping complete the transactions, strengthen mutual trust and marks the highest form of the business adventure for both parties.
Thus, the foundation of a successful online store is providing a flawless and welcoming shipping and payment experience. When choosing a payment method and the shipping method at the checkout, the Magento 2 payment restriction and shipping restriction extension came into the picture.
In default Magento 2, the store owner can only disable the shipping and payment methods for the entire store. But the Magento 2 payment and shipping restriction module will tailor your requirements. Using the Magento 2 payment and shipping restriction module, the store owner can put restrictions on the product and category level for what shipping or payment methods should be accessible to your customers as they place their orders.
What if there are Multiple Items in the Shopping Cart, each with Different Shipping & Payment Options?
The restrictions applied on product's payment and shipping take precedence over the restriction applied to a particular category. In this situation, it would determine which shipping and payment options are frequently used among the various products in the cart before showing them appropriately at the checkout.
If no shipping or payment method has been assigned to any products, an automatic check will be made to see if any categories have restrictions on shipping or payment methods. It combines the payment and shipping methods for each product according to the categories to which it belongs.
