        return '';
  • Will be called every time when the user select the shipping method ? Jun 8, 2018 at 15:26
  • I tried your solution but after using your code my checkout page become blank. Can you please add more details how it works ? Jun 8, 2018 at 17:28
  • Do you use magento default checkout? It's working fine for M2.2.4. If you select shipping method in shipping page, then click next. In payment & review section will restrict your payment method.

  • I found the solution here magento.stackexchange.com/questions/108594/… and this worked for me perfectly. Jun 10, 2018 at 12:18

I am not sure if magento has any event which triggers when the shipping method is selected. One solution is to create plugin on saveAddressInformation function of Magento\Checkout\Model\ShippingInformationManagement and use after method inside which you can implement your logic.
