I would like to change the shipping method title from "Priority Mail 1-Day" to "Priority Mail"

how do I target this cleanly?

 <td class="col col-method" data-bind="text: method.method_title, attr: {'id': 'label_method_' + method.method_code + '_' + method.carrier_code}"></td>

 <td class="col col-carrier" data-bind="text: method.carrier_title, attr: {'id': 'label_carrier_' + method.method_code + '_' + method.carrier_code}"></td>

This is Magento 2 and this data is displayed after a click event on a radio button. I'm thinking I might be able to do this a dirty way and use javascript to overwrite the string value.

    $('#formA input[type=radio]').click(function(){

But I'm not sure that is the best approach.


You can make a plugin for the \Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Address\RateResult\Method class, like the following:

public function afterSetPrice($subject)
    if ($subject->getMethodTitle === "Priority Mail 1-Day") {
        $subject->setMethodTitle("Priority Mail");

    return null;
  • I can't find a path \Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Address\RateResult\Method in my app directory. I'm using the Novetty Theme. – gx2g Oct 3 '17 at 17:21
  • This didn't work I found the directory path in the vendor folder. made the changes and did a full cache. – gx2g Oct 3 '17 at 17:39
  • The problem may be that the method title in the if statement isn't a match, copy exactly what appears in the checkout. I can confirm that this approach does work because I use it myself. – Aaron Allen Oct 3 '17 at 19:12
  • I am putting it in the "class Method extends AbstractResult" class at the bottom and I checked the string it's a match completely. am I doing this wrong? – gx2g Oct 3 '17 at 19:25
  • vendor > magento > module-quote > Model > Quote > Address > RateResult > method.php – gx2g Oct 3 '17 at 21:24
