I want to show/hide custom shipping method like "Delivery in 2 hours" radio button if customer fills particular city on checkout page. If he is from that city will show "2 hour delivery" option if not will hide it. Can anybody help me in this?

Thanks in advance.

I found this M2 Shipping Module helped me manipulate the shipping methods to suit my needs. I built to exclude delivery to certain postcodes and also use a custom attribute to set the method's price.

update (in light of question)

I guess it needs to install properly first but based on your question you might look at modifying something like these suggestions from the documentation

addMethod('id_005', [
    'title'      => "France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Italy",
    'enabled'    => in_array($request->dest_country_id, ['FR', 'DE', 'CH', 'ES', 'IT']),
    'price'      => 10,
addMethod('id_006', [
    'title'      => "Postcode starting with 25",
    'enabled'    => $request->dest_country_id == 'FR' && substr($request->dest_postcode, 0, 2) == '25',
    'price'      => 10,
addMethod('id_007', [
    'title'      => "Regular expressions allowing postal codes beginning with 'PO' (case insensitive)",
    'enabled'    => $request->dest_country_id == 'GB' && preg_match('/^PO.*$/i', $request->dest_postcode),
    'price'      => 10,

You should edit corresponding shipping class and add city validation, something like this:

 * @param RateRequest $request
 * @return bool|Result
public function collectRates(RateRequest $request)
    if (!$this->getConfigFlag('active')) {
        return false;

    if ($request->getDestCity() != 'Minsk') { // add your city validation here
        return false;

    /** @var \Magento\Shipping\Model\Rate\Result $result */
    $result = $this->_rateResultFactory->create();

    /** @var \Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Address\RateResult\Method $method */
    $method = $this->_rateMethodFactory->create();



    $amount = $this->getConfigData('price');



    return $result;

Previous code works if you want to remove the whole carrier with all methods. If you want to remove just one method you should add a validation before calling of the append($method) method:

if ($method->getMethod() == 'your_method_code') { // validate method
    if ($request->getDestCity() == 'Minsk') { // validate city
} else {
  • Thank you for your response, but I would like to ask that in $request how city will come? if user has not fill the city field on checkout form?

  • @AliFani Could you share your code? May 10, 2017 at 13:35

Thank you everyone for your help, but finally I solved the issue, getting postal code from Ajax and finding city on the basis of the postal code and then manipulating shipping option.

Thanks and Cheers


  • hey @ali how you did this please post the solution.
