How to Create Custom Shipping Method in Magento 2

Magento 2 already has some built-in shipping methods. But in some cases, we may want to create our own shipping methods in Magento 2. It’s not a difficult process. We can create a custom shipping method in Magento 2 very easily. Here is the blog which helps you to create your own custom shipping method in a short time.

Steps to Create a Custom Shipping Method:

  • Create a new module
  • Create a configuration file
  • Define shipping model
  • Create a shipping model
  • Module setup upgrade

Create a new module:

Create a “registration.php” file in the below file path to register our new module,

File path: <Magento_2_Root>/app/code/BlogTreat/CustomShipping/registration.php


Next, create a “module.xml” file in the below file path to define the module,

File path: <Magento_2_Root>/app/code/BlogTreat/CustomShipping/etc/module.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="BlogTreat_CustomShipping" setup_version="1.0.0">

Create a configuration file:

In Magento 2, every shipping method should have config options in the admin panel. We can create config options for our shipping method through the system.xml file.

File path: <Magento_2_Root>/app/code/BlogTreat/CustomShipping/etc/adminhtml/system.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Config:etc/system_file.xsd">
        <section id="carriers" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="320" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
            <group id="customshipping" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="10" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
                <label>Custom Shipping Method</label>
                <field id="active" translate="label" type="select" sortOrder="1" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="0" canRestore="1">
                <field id="price" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="4" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="0">
                    <label>Shipping Cost</label>
                    <validate>validate-number validate-zero-or-greater</validate>
                <field id="name" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="3" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1" canRestore="1">
                    <label>Method Name</label>
                <field id="sort_order" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="100" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="0">
                    <label>Sort Order</label>
                <field id="title" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="2" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1" canRestore="1">
                <field id="sallowspecific" translate="label" type="select" sortOrder="90" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="0" canRestore="1">
                    <label>Ship to Applicable Countries</label>
                <field id="specificcountry" translate="label" type="multiselect" sortOrder="91" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="0">
                    <label>Ship to Specific Countries</label>
                <field id="showmethod" translate="label" type="select" sortOrder="92" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="0">
                    <label>Show Method if Not Applicable</label>
                <field id="specificerrmsg" translate="label" type="textarea" sortOrder="80" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1" canRestore="1">
                    <label>Displayed Error Message</label>

Define shipping model:

Now create a “config.xml” file in the below path and set the default configuration for our custom shipping method,

File path: <Magento_2_Root>/app/code/BlogTreat/CustomShipping/etc/config.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Store:etc/config.xsd">
                <name>Custom Shipping</name>
                <title>Custom Shipping</title>
                <specificerrmsg>This shipping method is not available. To use this shipping method, please contact us.</specificerrmsg>

Here, <default> is a parent node and its child node is <carriers>, <customshipping> is our shipping method code. <model> is the important one and within this <model> tag, we should define our shipping model class.

Create a shipping model:

After defining the shipping model on the “config.xml”, we need to create shipping model class “Customshipping.php” in the below file path,

File path: <Magento_2_Root>/app/code/BlogTreat/CustomShipping/Model/Carrier/Customshipping.php

namespace BlogTreat\CustomShipping\Model\Carrier;

use Magento\Framework\App\Config\ScopeConfigInterface;
use Magento\Framework\DataObject;
use Magento\Shipping\Model\Carrier\AbstractCarrier;
use Magento\Shipping\Model\Carrier\CarrierInterface;
use Magento\Shipping\Model\Config;
use Magento\Shipping\Model\Rate\ResultFactory;
use Magento\Store\Model\ScopeInterface;
use Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Address\RateResult\ErrorFactory;
use Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Address\RateResult\Method;
use Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Address\RateResult\MethodFactory;
use Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Address\RateRequest;
use Psr\Log\LoggerInterface;

class Customshipping extends AbstractCarrier implements CarrierInterface
     * @var string
    protected $_code = 'customshipping';

     * @var bool
    protected $_isFixed = true;

     * @var ResultFactory
    protected $_rateResultFactory;

     * @var MethodFactory
    protected $_rateMethodFactory;

     * @param ScopeConfigInterface $scopeConfig
     * @param ErrorFactory $rateErrorFactory
     * @param LoggerInterface $logger
     * @param ResultFactory $rateResultFactory
     * @param MethodFactory $rateMethodFactory
     * @param array $data
    public function __construct(
        ScopeConfigInterface $scopeConfig,
        ErrorFactory $rateErrorFactory,
        LoggerInterface $logger,
        ResultFactory $rateResultFactory,
        MethodFactory $rateMethodFactory,
        array $data = []
    ) {
        $this->_rateResultFactory = $rateResultFactory;
        $this->_rateMethodFactory = $rateMethodFactory;
        parent::__construct($scopeConfig, $rateErrorFactory, $logger, $data);

     * @return array
     * @api
    public function getAllowedMethods()
        return [$this->getCarrierCode() => __($this->getConfigData('name'))];

     * @SuppressWarnings(PHPMD.UnusedFormalParameter)
     * @param RateRequest $request
     * @return DataObject|bool|null
     * @api
    public function collectRates(RateRequest $request)
         * Make sure that shipping method is enabled
        if (!$this->isActive()) {
            return false;

        /** @var \Magento\Shipping\Model\Rate\Result $result */
        $result = $this->_rateResultFactory->create();
        $shippingPrice = $this->getConfigData('price');
        $method = $this->_rateMethodFactory->create();

         * Set carrier's method data

         * Displayed as shipping method under Carrier
        return $result;


  • In Magento 2, Every shipping class should extend \Magento\Shipping\Model\Carrier\AbstractCarrier and implements the \Magento\Shipping\Model\Carrier\CarrierInterface class.
  • The value of $_code should be the same name as the group id in the system.xml.
  • The two functions getAllowedMethods and collectRates are required by the abstract class and interface.
  • In the function collectRates, we have to implement all logic for our custom shipping calculation.

Module setup upgrade:

Finally, we have to enable our extension and install it. For that, go to [magento_root]/bin directory and run the below command in CLI,

php magento module:enable BlogTreat_CustomShipping

Then, run the below command in CLI to upgrade the setup,

php magento setup:upgrade

Then, clear the cache using the below CLI command,

php magento c:c

Now, Log in to your Magento 2 admin panel, navigate to STORES > Configuration, expand the SALES section from the left panel and click Shipping Methods. You can see our custom shipping method configuration page as follows,
