WooCommerce: Add Hyperlink to Shipping Method Label @ Cart & Checkout

Let’s say you want to help customers understand your shipping rates and benefits right on the WooCommerce Cart and Checkout pages, by adding a link to each shipping option (e.g. “View shipping FAQ“).

As you can see from the first and second screenshot below, if you enter any HTML within the WooCommerce shipping zone -> shipping method settings, this will be stripped out, and HTML tags such as hyperlinks won’t work.

So, how can we add a clickable text link to each shipping method, given that we can’t use the WooCommerce settings? Well, as usual, a quick PHP snippet can help us with that. Enjoy!

If we enter any HTML in the shipping method settings…
…WooCommerce strips the HTML on the frontend, so it’s not possible to add hyperlinks for example.
Let’s change that! With a simple PHP snippet, you can add any HTML at the beginning or end of the single shipping rate label, such as a hyperlink.

add_filter( 'woocommerce_cart_shipping_method_full_label', 'bbloomer_shipping_method_suffix' );

function bbloomer_shipping_method_suffix( $label ) {
   return $label . ' (<a href="">shipping FAQ</a>)';
}

Where to add custom code?

You should place custom PHP in functions.php and custom CSS in style.css of your child theme: where to place WooCommerce customization?

This code still works, unless you report otherwise. To exclude conflicts, temporarily switch to the Storefront theme, disable all plugins except WooCommerce, and test the snippet again: WooCommerce troubleshooting 101

  1. Hi, I was excited to see your elegant solution. It doesn’t seem to work, but maybe I’m just not understanding how to format/syntax the label in order to make the hyperlink work

    WordPress (6.3.1)
    WooCommerce version: 8.0.3

    1. Hey Richard, did you use my exact code or did you edit it?
