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! Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Shipping Phone @ Checkout
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). Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Hide “Shipping Calculator” Fields @ Cart
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!
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? Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Assign Free Shipping to a Single Product?
In the past, WooCommerce cart and checkout pages used to show “$0.00” beside each free shipping rate. But given that many freelance clients requested this customization, today we’re bringing this back to life with just a few lines of PHP 🙂 Continue reading WooCommerce: Display $0.00 Amount For Free Shipping Rates
Let’s talk about checkout UX: if a user is willing to pick up the item in store, why should there be a shipping form on the checkout?

With many of Business Bloomer fans always asking for this sort of customization, today we’ll see how to do just that. Without the need of just another plugin 🙂 Continue reading WooCommerce: Shipping by Weight (Without a Plugin!)
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! Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Setup Tiered Shipping Rates by Order Amount
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. Continue reading WooCommerce: Limit Shipping to Only One State
Our goal is to check if a Product with a specific Shipping Class is in the Cart, and consequently disabling Free Shipping if this is true. This is super useful when there are multiple items in the cart and you don’t want to give free shipping for certain orders. Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Shipping Rate if Cart has Shipping Class

A client needed to disable all shipping methods but Local Pickup for a certain variation ID. This may come useful if you’re looping through the variations on the cart/checkout page (check if variation ID is in the cart for example), so here you go! Continue reading WooCommerce: Disable Shipping Rate if Variation ID @ Cart
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! Continue reading WooCommerce: Sort Shipping Costs from Low to High
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. Here’s how you do it! Continue reading WooCommerce: Remove Shipping Labels @ Cart (e.g. “Flat Rate”)
The cart totals table cell title “Shipping” or “Shipping and Handling” appears also on the checkout page. So, what if you wish to “translate” this string from English to “better” English or completely customize it? Thankfully there’s a quick 4 lines snippet for you. Enjoy! Continue reading WooCommerce: Translate “Shipping” @ Cart Totals
This is a very cool snippet that many of you should use to increase your average order value. Ecommerce customers who are near the “free shipping” threshold will try to add more products to cart in order to qualify for free shipping. It’s pure psychology.
Here’s how we show a simple message on the WooCommerce Cart page. Enjoy! Continue reading WooCommerce: “You Only Need $$$ to Get Free Shipping!” @ Cart
A very annoying thing this is. If one of your WooCommerce shipping methods is Free, a label (Free) will appear next to it. It cannot be deleted via CSS as some WooCommerce function adds it via code to the shipping method label. So how do we deactivate it? Continue reading WooCommerce: Remove (free) in Shipping Method Label @ Cart
A WooCommerce client wanted to show some text in the checkout page, and specifically “Please allow 5-10 business days for delivery after order processing.” so that customers are aware of how shipping works. This is a vital information you should disclose on every page of your ecommerce website, and of course on the checkout page too. Continue reading WooCommerce: Add Shipping Notices on Checkout Page
WooCommerce allows you to limit shipping by countries (or “allowed” countries). However, say your business is based in Pennsylvania, USA (PA) or in one of the Australian states. You may want to limit shipping to a state only.
All you need is pasting the following code in your functions.php Continue reading WooCommerce: Limit Shipping to One State Only
