MDVA-29446: Non-relevant shipping method available for checkout

The MDVA-29446 patch solves the issue where a shipping method that is not applicable shows up on the checkout shipping method options, and if selected, an error message “Carrier with such method not found null, flat rate.” displays. This patch is available when the Quality Patches Tool (QPT) 1.0.6 is installed. The issue is scheduled to be fixed in later Adobe Commerce versions.

Affected products and versions

The patch is created for Adobe Commerce version:

  • Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure 2.3.4

Compatible with Adobe Commerce versions:

  • Adobe Commerce (all deployment methods) 2.3.3-2.4.0.
The patch might become applicable to other versions with new Quality Patches Tool releases. To check if the patch is compatible with your Adobe Commerce version, update the magento/quality-patches package to the latest version and check the compatibility on the Quality Patches Tool: Search for patches page. Use the patch ID as a search keyword to locate the patch.


You have a shipping method that is not applicable but still shows up on the checkout shipping method options, and you can select this non-relevant shipping method.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Install clean 2.3-develop.

  2. Enable Flat rate and set:

    • Ship to Applicable Countries = Specific Countries
    • Ship to Specific Countries = Antarctica
    • Show Method if Not Applicable = Yes
  3. Disable all other shipping methods.

  4. Go to the frontend, create a customer with a US address.

  5. Select an item and click Add to Cart.

  6. Click on the cart and click Proceed to Checkout.

Actual results:

  1. On the Shipping page, you see the following:

    • Flat rate is visible
    • Flat rate is $0
  2. After the user clicks Next, the user gets the following error:

“Carrier with such method not found: null, flatrate”

Expected results:

  • The price of the shipping method is not visible if the shipping method is not applicable.
  • The Next button should not be active.
