    Marketplace Shipping Availability Check For Magento 2

    Shipping Availability Check is a Marketplace add-on for the Magento 2, which allows the users to find out product availability using zip codes. The users can simply enter a zip code on the product page to know whether the product is available in that zip code or not.

    The admin and the sellers can add different regions, upload zip code CSV file, and select available regions for the products.

    Zip Code Validator also works with Assigned Products, where the different sellers can add regions for the assigned products. The users can enter a zip code and find the product availability for the assigned products.

    Note: This is a Marketplace add-on, please install Webkul Marketplace Multi-Vendor Module for Magento 2 first.
