Usage Examples with Tutorials
USAGE EXAMPLE OF MINIMUM ORDER AMOUNT
Let’s say you aim to offer free deliveries for orders amounts above $150 and charge $10 for delivery for orders amounts below $150.
Besides, only allow deliveries to a certain delivery area, in this example called “Boston”.
This can simply be achieved by adding two shipping methods.
Start by creating a drawn shipping area at Dashboard -> WooCommerce -> Shipping Zones by Drawing. Give it the title “Boston”.
Add a "Shipping Zones by Drawing" shipping method with a flat rate of $0 and a minimum order amount of $150.Choose the "Boston" delivery zone.
Then add a second shipping method with a flat rate of $10 and choose the “Boston” delivery zone.
Now your WooCommerce shipping zone setup should look like the figure below.
At the plugin settings page, select the option to only show the lowest cost shipping method at checkout. If you don´t choose this option booth of the delivery methods will be available at checkout.
The setup is now ready and we have accomplished our aim.
Shipping address within the delivery area “Boston”
Order amount above $150
Order amount below $150
USAGE EXAMPLE OF OVERLAPPING RATES
In this example, we like to offer free deliveries in the inner of the city, a $5 delivery cost in a middle zone, and $10 in an outer region from the city center.
Let´s start by creating a drawn shipping area at Dashboard -> WooCommerce -> Shipping Zones by Drawing. Give it the title “Boston high”.
Add a “Shipping Zones by Drawing” shipping method with a flat rate of $10.
Choose the “Boston high” delivery zone.
Continue by drawing a second delivery zone (Boston middle) and adding a second delivery method (Middle Zone) with a $5 flat rate and the new “Boston middle” delivery zone as a restriction.
Finally, draw a third delivery zone (Boston free) and add a third delivery method (Free Delivery) with a $0 flat rate and the new “Boston free” delivery zone as a restriction.
Your WooCommerce shipping zone setup should now look like the figure below.
At the plugin settings page, select the option to only show the lowest cost shipping method on the checkout page. If you don´t choose this option all three of the delivery methods will be visible at checkout when the delivery address is in the most central zone.
The configuration is now ready and the three zones will be overlapping each other. The most cost-friendly alternative will be shown on the checkout page depending on the customer’s delivery address.
