Setting up Shipping Zones

Modified on Mon, 19 Sep, 2022 at 8:01 AM

To set up the WooCommerce Table Rate Shipping method, you first need to set up a shipping zone, then add the method to the shipping zone, and lastly, configure the method. You can create as many shipping zones as you want, and add multiple methods to each zone.

A Shipping Zone is a geographical area to which items can be shipped to. Shipping zones can be as specific as need be, right down to regions and zip codes, or as generic as possible.

It is important to note that customers can only see methods that are available for their address and the corresponding shipping zone. A customer may qualify for only one shipping zone.

Adding a new zone

1. Go to: WooCommerce > Settings > Shipping > Shipping Zones. If you don’t see Shipping as an option, go back to WooCommerce > General and take a look at the Shipping Location(s) settings, Shipping & Shipping Calculation may have been disabled there.

2. Select Add shipping zone at the top.
