With WooCommerce Advanced Shipping you can create your own shipping rates based on conditions. This allows you to have the ultimate flexibility in what you want to charge to which people. Best of all, you don’t need to code anything to get started! Using the simple User Interface you can set the conditions based on your shipping needs.
You can create your own table rate shipping based on the conditions. To give a couple examples, you can use ‘Weight’, ‘Volume’, ‘Country’, ‘State’ conditions to set your table shipping rates.
With these conditions you can create as many shipping methods as you’d like. Without any programming language knowledge you can set your own specific shipping rate needs.
WooCommerce Advanced Shipping – Shipping Zones
With the Shipping Zones extension you can create a group of locations such as countries, states and zipcodes and set that as a condition. This is ideal when you have the same rate for a list of countries such as entire Europe.
WooCommerce Advanced Shipping – Advanced Pricing
With the WAS Advanced Pricing extension is is possible to set more specific pricing. Using this extension will allow you to;
Setup weight based shipping cost
Shipping cost per shipping class
Shipping cost per category
Shipping per product / shipping cost per variation
For example, you can set shipping cost per (specific) product, per shipping class, per category.
Need something more specific? The extension is made to be easily extendable so you can also add your own shipping cost option.
Common shipping rate use cases
Shipping by Weight is one of the most common use cases. There are multiple ways to setup shipping rates by weight that are very flexible. Learn more about setting up shipping rates by weight.
Shipping by Subtotal/Order Amount is also a popular way to setup shipping cost. Setup rates based on the order amount and possibly give free shipping above a certain amount.
Shipping cost per shipping class/category/product are useful when offering products that have separate cost to be shipped. Shipping rates can be setup to be summed together or to only use the most expensive for example.
