WooCommerce Distance Rate Shipping
Due to the fact that this extension utilises Google Maps, the Google Distance Matrix API, and the Google Maps Embed API, a Google account is required in order to use it. There are premium options available for some of these functions. The cost is computed based on the information that is supplied by the “Driving” Mode of the Distance Matrix API. This includes both the route that was returned as well as the subsequent total distance.
With the help of the WooCommerce Distance Rate Shipping extensions, you will be able to quickly provide shipping prices to your customers that are dependent on the entire trip time or distance to their location.
Rules may be set up to collect additional fees depending on the total cart value, the total weight of the products in the cart, and the number of things in the cart in addition to charging additional fees based on the distance travelled and the total amount of time spent travelling.
If, for instance, you are in the business of renting out keg draught beer setups and also deliver the equipment, but you want to charge different rates for the delivery depending on how far away the customer is from you and how many kegs they rent, then the WooCommerce Distance Rate Shipping extension is exactly what you need.
Or, if you operate a service that offers home-cooked meals but would like to charge more for delivery dependent on how far away the consumer lives from you, then the WooCommerce Distance Rate Shipping plugin is the right solution for you.
When it comes to pricing for shipping depending on the entire distance or journey time, the application cases are practically unlimited and may accommodate virtually any conceivable circumstance.
