Step 2: Add the module configuration

To add a module configuration use the following source code snippets.

Source code of app/code/Vendor/CustomShipping/etc/adminhtml/system.xml

The system.xml source code declares custom shipping module options:

  • Enabled
  • Title
  • Method Name
  • Shipping Cost
  • Ship to Applicable Countries
  • Ship to Specific Countries
  • Show Method if Not Applicable
  • Sort Order

            </customshipping>
        </carriers>
    </default>
</config>

Step 3: Create the carrier model

In this example, the Vendor\CustomShipping\Model\Carrier\Customshipping class is a skeleton of a carrier model. You can extend it to fit your needs.

The carrier class implements the CarrierInterface interface and retrieves all available shipping methods in the getAllowedMethods function. The collectRates function returns the \Magento\Shipping\Model\Rate\Result object if the carrier method is available on checkout. Otherwise, it returns false—the carrier method is not applicable to the shopping cart.
