Advanced Flat Rate Shipping For WooCommerce Pro
The Advanced Flat Rate Shipping Method for WooCommerce plugin is a comprehensive solution for all of your requirements about flat-rate shipping. Develop a variety of shipping methods and apply a variety of shipping criteria to each. Provide a number of different shipping ways with a fixed charge along with an infinite number of conditional shipping conditions. You may offer free delivery for any area, product, cart, or user-specific circumstances by charging flat rates instead. This can apply to several conditions at once.
With the help of this plugin, you will be able to apply rules to your methods that pertain to the following: the nation, the state, the postal code, the zone, the product, the category, the tag, the SKU, the product variation, the user, the quantity, the user role, the cart subtotal before the discount, the coupon, the weight, the cart subtotal after the discount, the shipping class, and so on. You can choose to apply a single rule or a number of different requirements that an order has to fulfil.
Advanced shipping price rules
Let’s imagine that a business wishes to charge varying amounts for shipping different types of products: $2 for t-shirts, $5 for groceries, and $7 for the category of appliances. In addition, these guidelines are only applicable to deliveries made in New York City if the subtotal of the shopping basket is less than $500.
The shop is able to apply numerous criteria and multiple delivery rates thanks to the sophisticated shipping pricing rules that govern those situations. Conditions based on the following are supported by more sophisticated rules:
- Product name
- Category name
- Total quantity in cart
- Product weight
- Category weight
- Cart weight
In addition, you have the ability to choose the following selections for your delivery methods:
- Shipping price
- Duration for which your shipping method is valid
- Tooltip description to show on hover
- Shipping charges ($0 for free shipping)
- Taxability status (whether the shipping price is taxable or not)
- Estimated delivery time
There are six different kinds of conditional operators that may be applied to this situation:
- Equal to (=)
- Not equal to (! =)
- Less than (<)
- Less than or equal to (< =)
- Greater than (>)
- Greater than or equal to (> =)
Note: Because it is not possible to apply every single operator to every single rule, we have decided to deactivate certain of these operators for certain rule types.
You run the danger of having conditions that are incompatible with one another if you set several flat rate shipping options for your WooCommerce store. Use the Master Settings to determine which shipping method should be used for each of these scenarios so that you can prevent this problem:
- Minimum shipping charges
- Maximum shipping charges
- Buyer’s choice
- Force all the shipping methods on the plugin
Check out the main plugin page, which can be found below the list of available shipping methods, in order to adjust the master settings.
Custom shipping zones
In most cases, proprietors of WooCommerce stores are required to apply several regulations to the same group of locations. You could, for instance, wish to define a free shipping rule for a certain group of locations and a flat-rate shipping price for a specific group of nations. Custom shipping zones simplify a procedure that would otherwise need you to add each of these places to each rule individually. Normally, this would be the case. Make your own specialised zones that encompass a number of different places.
You may reuse the collection of countries by include the shipping zone in each of your shipping methods once you have added one or more nations to your shipping zone.
