WooCommerce: Shipping Rates by Order Amount

The new shipping zone management that was introduced with Woo 2.6 gives us the chance to add flat rate, free shipping and local pick-up methods by default.

But what if a client requires 3 different rates depending on the order amount (tiered shipping)? For example: “For orders up to $100, shipping = $5; for orders up to $250, shipping = $2; for orders above $500, shipping = free”.

Is this possible without using a plugin? Well, the answer, as usual, is absolutely yes! Enjoy!

Sometimes, just like physical stores, your WooCommerce website may need a few days off!

Nothing special there, as long as online customers are aware of the fact you will be reopening soon.
