As we have moved to an era where eCommerce website like Marketplace websites and hyperlocal websites have put down a strong foot in the market.
These websites have paved the way for the local sellers/vendors to add their products. But many local sellers with limited shipping range cannot provide international shipping to the customer.
To avoid such a scenario, there is a need to restrict delivery for the seller within a particular range.
With Marketplace Delivery Restriction extension, the seller can define the area or the region in which the product delivery for the respective seller can be made feasible.
Opencart Marketplace Delivery Restriction module is an add-on. To use this module, you must have installed the Opencart Marketplace module first.
Why is Delivery Restriction needed for your Marketplace website?

It can be a little tricky as there may encounter instances where the cost for the shipping of the product may even go higher than the product cost.
Consider an example for the detailed understanding if you have purchased a product that cost you 10 USD.
But the shipping to the respective address may cost equivalent or even higher if the distance between the pickup and the drop off location is far from each other. This will make it little uneasy for the seller to deliver it.
There may also be cases in which the customer orders from a remote location where the shipping provided by the seller is unavailable.
