WooCommerce: Display $0.00 Amount For Free Shipping Rates

In the past, WooCommerce Cart and Checkout pages used to show “$0.00” beside each free shipping rate. Now, this is gone and WooCommerce only shows the shipping rate name, without the 0 amount.

But given that many freelance clients requested this customization, today we’re bringing this back to life with just a few lines of PHP. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: display $0 amount beside free shipping rates at cart & checkout

add_filter( 'woocommerce_cart_shipping_method_full_label', 'bbloomer_add_0_to_shipping_label', 9999, 2 );

function bbloomer_add_0_to_shipping_label( $label, $method ) {
   if ( ! ( $method->cost > 0 ) ) {
      $label .= ': ' . wc_price( 0 );
   return $label;

add_filter( 'woocommerce_order_shipping_to_display', 'bbloomer_add_0_to_shipping_label_ordered', 9999, 3 );

function bbloomer_add_0_to_shipping_label_ordered( $shipping, $order, $tax_display ) {
	if ( ! ( 0 < abs( (float) $order->get_shipping_total() ) ) && $order->get_shipping_method() ) {
		$shipping .= ': ' . wc_price( 0 );
	return $shipping;

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

    Thanks in advance


    1. Alex, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  9. Thank you so much for this tip ! Worked perfectly 🙂
    Do you have any idea to show this “$0.00” amount in the customer emails (something like 0.00$ via [My carrier] in the table recap) ?
    Thanks again from France !

    1. Hello there, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is possible – but unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R

  10. Worked as descriped very nice, thank you!

  11. I noticed that my child theme functions.php files do not have an ending “?>”
    Does this matter?

    1. Ilana, thanks for your comment! Not at all a problem, that’s actually better 🙂
