Hi Balbooa,

I'd love to use the eCommerce app for a new customer, but they also need local delivery functionality. I.e. only allow a delivery option, if the delivery address is local to the seller.

However, this can be implemented (in the UK at least) simply by:

- In the delivery, have a new option to "restrict by post code". The restricted postcode(s) can be as specific or general as required.
E.g. restricted postcode = "CM16", which would allow this delivery option to be available for all customer deliveries starting with the postcode "CM16". The restricted postcode could be more general "CT" or more specific "CM16E" - it would be up to the user to decide the scope.

- Multiple post codes could be separated with a ";" "CM16;CM17" etc (But I'm sure you can make this nicer ;-)

- The beauty of this approach is, the logic is a simple string comparison. No distances need to computed, no maps drawn etc. The delivery restrictive postcode either matches the start of the delivery address (and the delivery option is allowed), or it doesn't (and that delivery option is not available).

This would be a simple, but great addition to the eCommerce store. A lot of small businesses are looking for this functionality in their online store. E.g. make the delivery themselves (if the delivery is local), otherwise use a courier.

Please consider this useful feature.

Many thanks
Marc
