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

add_filter( 'woocommerce_cart_shipping_method_full_label', 'bbloomer_add_0_to_shipping_label', 10, 2 );
function bbloomer_add_0_to_shipping_label( $label, $method ) {

// if shipping rate is 0, concatenate ": $0.00" to the label
if ( ! ( $method->cost > 0 ) ) {
$label .= ': ' . wc_price(0);

// return original or edited shipping label
return $label;


Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). 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+.

  2. Hi,

    I want to show ‘Free’ instead of €0,00. How to achieve that?

    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!

  3. Thank you so much for this tip ! Worked perfectly πŸ™‚
    Do you have any idea to show this β€œ$0.00” amount in the customer emails (something like 0.00$ 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

  4. Worked as descriped very nice, thank you!

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