WooCommerce: Show Shipping Class ID @ Shipping Class Admin Table

You can use WooCommerce shipping classes to customize shipping rates for a defined group of products. You can manually add shipping classes via the /wp-admin/admin.php?page=wc-settings&tab=shipping&section=classes URL (i.e. WooCommerce > Settings > Shipping > Shipping Classes).

We’ve often worked with snippets requiring a shipping class ID, and I explained there were a couple of ways to figure that out, all involving the “Inspect” tool of the browser.

But what if you need to actually display the IDs inside the shipping class table, so that it’s easier for the store admin to get and use such data?

Well, the snippet below will help you do that. And thanks to Peter for sharing most of the code!

WooCommerce: Display Shipping Class @ Single Product Page

In certain cases, you may want to show the name of the current product’s shipping class. This is helpful especially for B2B stores, or when the shipping class name is very descriptive and helps the customer with their shopping choices.

Of all the places where we can print the shipping class, I chose the “Product Meta” section, which already shows the product SKU, Tags and Categories – this code will add another line called “Shipping class”, together with the name of the class (if any, of course). Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Product Archive For Shipping Classes

In WooCommerce you have publicly accessible product archives for product categories e.g. “all tables“, product tags e.g. “all casual” and product attributes e.g. “all medium“. URLs are available to you and you can even define their custom permalink slug base via the settings e.g. /product-tag/, /product-cat/, etc.

What’s interesting though, is that there are many more “custom taxonomies” that are registered in WooCommerce, however they don’t seem to have their own archive, because it’s been decided they were not useful.

But what if you want to see, as a customer, all the shop products belonging to a specific shipping class? We’ve seen, for example, how to split the cart into packages based on shipping class – so it would be super helpful to customers, in such a case, to view all the products belonging to each shipping class at a given URL.

So, let’s do that!
