How Do I Use the Shipping Zone in WooCommerce?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 5:44 am

If you’re running a WooCommerce store, you’ve probably noticed that there are a lot of different shipping options to choose from. One of these options is the shipping zone. But what is a shipping zone, and how do you use it?

A shipping zone is a defined area that you ship to. This can be based on geographic location, such as a country or region.

It can also be based on other factors, such as weight, price, or item type. You can create as many shipping zones as you like, and each zone can have its own shipping rules.

To use the shipping zone feature in WooCommerce, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Shipping > Shipping Zones. From here, you can add a new shipping zone by clicking the Add Shipping Zone button.

When adding a new shipping zone, you’ll need to give it a name and select the region(s) that it applies to. You can also choose to enable or disable specific shipping methods for this zone. Once you’ve saved your changes, the new shipping zone will be displayed on the Shipping Zones page.

You can now add products to this shipping zone and they will be available for purchase by customers in that region. If you want to change the shipping rules for a particular product, you can do so by editing the product and selecting the new shipping zone from the Shipping drop-down menu.

The shipping zone feature in WooCommerce is a great way to control which products are available for purchase by customers in specific regions. By creating different shipping zones for different regions, you can ensure that your customers always have access to the products they need.
