The admin can add postal codes in three ways:
- Upload CSV File to add postal codes.
- Add postal code range.
- Add postal codes one by one manually.
Add Postal Code Range
If the admin wants to add a CSV file for the postal code then the first column name would be for ‘postal code’ in which the postal code would be written. The second column would be ‘active’, showing whether the product is available on the postal code or not. You can use only two values in the active column, ie. 0 and 1. 0 denotes the postal code is inactive and 1 denotes the postal code is active.

Admin can create a CSV file as per the format provided and he needs to save the file with “.csv” extension.

When a user visits the store, a popup will appear on the page asking for the postal code as enabled by admin. The product availability will display for the postal code on the website.
A user can enter a postal code on the product page to check the availability of the product.
When product is available for delivery at entered postal code
When product is not available at the entered postal code
Since the product is not available at the postal code, the add to cart button will get disabled and the user won’t be able to order the product.
There can be a case when a customer has added products to the cart without checking its availability at his delivery address postal code.
In this case, a notification will appear under shipping method as shown in the below screenshot.
The customer will have to remove the unavailable product to complete the order.
