WooCommerce: Hide “Shipping to…” Address @ Cart

Even when the “shipping calculator” is disabled on the WooCommerce Cart page, a “Shipping to…” string will appear in the cart totals if an address has been previously entered or if geolocation is enabled.

Most WooCommerce store owners, however, wish to remove / hide this text, as it can be confusing for the customer. In this quick tutorial, we’ll study two different workarounds to achieve the same result. Enjoy!

The two alternative snippets below will hide the “Shipping to…” text string that displays below the shipping rates in the WooCommerce Cart totals section

PHP Snippet: Remove “Shipping to…” Text @ WooCommerce Cart Page

There is no WooCommerce hook that can modify the “Shipping to…” string, so we need to find a workaround. One option is to translate the “Shipping to…” string into an empty string.

 */

add_filter( 'gettext', 'bbloomer_translate_shippingto', 9999, 3 );
  
function bbloomer_translate_shippingto( $translated, $untranslated, $domain ) {
	if ( ! is_admin() && 'woocommerce' === $domain ) {
		switch ( $translated ) {
			case 'Shipping to %s.':
				$translated = '';
				break;
		}
	}   
	return $translated;
}

PHP + CSS Snippet: Hide “Shipping to…” String @ WooCommerce Cart

/**
 * @snippet       Hide "Shipping to..." @ WooCommerce Cart
 * @how-to        Get CustomizeWoo.com FREE
 * @author        Rodolfo Melogli
 * @compatible    WooCommerce 6

 */

add_action( 'woocommerce_before_cart', 'bbloomer_hide_shippingto' );

function bbloomer_hide_shippingto() {
	echo '<style>.woocommerce-shipping-destination{display:none}</style>';
}

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete "?>" if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.3.
