WooCommerce: Add Shipping Phone @ Checkout

I’m surprised WooCommerce doesn’t offer this field out of the box. Most ecommerce websites actually require a shipping phone to organize delivery and communicate with the end customer in case there are problems.

Thankfully, there is a hook (filter) for that. It’s called “woocommerce_checkout_fields” and can be used to remove, move or add checkout fields quickly. And here’s how to add, for example, a new shipping field called “shipping_phone”. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: How to Hide “Shipping Calculator” Fields @ Cart

The “Shipping Calculator” can be enabled via the WooCommerce settings in order to give the user a way to calculate their shipping fees before getting to the Checkout Page. Usually they fill out the country, state, city and postcode form fields and click on “Update Totals” in order to calculate the shipping.

However, what if you only calculate shipping based on country? Or what if you only charge by zip code / postcode? In this case, you will need to hide the input fields you don’t need, and make UX better.

Well, here are some WooCommerce filters you can use from WooCommerce version 3.4 onwards to hide the fields you like (apart from country, which is mandatory).

WooCommerce: Assign Free Shipping to a Single Product

Believe it or not, the answer to this very frequent question is inside the WooCommerce settings… so don’t worry too much about coding if you’re not a developer or purchasing yet another premium WooCommerce plugin!

From the WooCommerce shipping rates, you can select “Free Shipping” as a method but that would apply to ALL products – so how do you override the shipping settings and allow a single product to have free shipping, while keeping all the others on a Flat rate?

WooCommerce: Weight-Based Shipping Methods

With WooCommerce you get 3 default shipping methods: Flat Rate, Free Shipping, Local Pickup. For each one you can define a cost, however there is no way to set up some “weight” restrictions.

So, what if you want to display a rate for orders below 10 kg, and another shipping rate for orders above that weight?

Well, you can use simple PHP to accomplish lots of “advanced” shipping rules, such as shipping by weight.

As long as all your products have their weight information filled in, you can create some simple rules to conditionally hide/show certain shipping methods based on cart weight. Enjoy!

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!

WooCommerce: Limit Shipping to Only One State

Today’s snippet has been widely requested by many readers, clients and WooCommerce fans. We already saw in the past how to Limit State Dropdowns to One State Only (for both Shipping & Billing) and How to Sell to one State only (Billing).

However, we never covered a much more common setting: what happens when Billing is allowed to every state but Shipping is limited?

In order to get a little help, I’ve reached out to Diego Zanella, a WooCommerce genius who is also the author of the Aelia Currency Switcher plugin for WooCommerce.

WooCommerce: Hide Shipping Rate If Variation ID Is In The Cart

Perhaps a bulky variation needs a special freight rate, while others can utilize standard shipping.

WooCommerce: Sort Shipping Costs from Low to High

A client had several shipping rates on the cart page automatically generated by FedEx, USPS, UPS and similar plugins via their API. Problem was, they wanted to sort them by price as opposed to grouping them by provider.

Thankfully, with a simple “uasort” PHP function, it’s possible to take the shipping rates array and sort it by amount before returning it back to the screen. If you don’t know PHP, simply copy/paste!

WooCommerce: Remove Shipping Labels @ Cart (e.g. “Flat Rate”)

WooCommerce functions add the shipping method label on the Cart totals, on the left hand side of the price. This ruins the price amounts alignment (subtotal, shipping, taxes, total) and many clients have asked me to remove it completely. Also, it could be that sometimes you don’t want to show the name of a shipping rate on the front-end. So, here’s how you do it!
