Table Rate Shipping Features

Here are some of the key features of the WooCommerce table rate shipping extension:

Multiple Zones

There is a separate page for you configure various shipping zones. Each one can be set to everywhere, one or more countries/states, or a single country/state with a variety of postal codes.

Customer Options

Your customer will be able to choose from multiple shipping costs. Standard and Express shipping can be set up with the same rules but different costs.

Three Conditions

Set your shipping rates based on three conditions – per order, per item, or per shipping class method.

Tax Inclusion

You can set shipping costs based on the price of items (with or without tax included).

Volumetric Shipping

Volumetric shipping allows the plugin to calculate shipping based on the volumetric weight or the actual weight listed, whichever is higher.

Handling Fees

Additional fees can be applied to the cart on a per-zone basis. It may include either a fixed price, a percentage of the customer’s subtotal or a combination of both.

Rules Based on Options

Each rule has its own row in the table that can be based on price, weight, quantity and overall dimensions. However, only one can be selected for each rule. These rules can change from row to row so that one zone may be based on price while another on weight.

Simple Bundling

You have the option to change the cost once for customers who purchase multiple items. When bundling is enabled, the cost is applied for each item up to a certain number. When that number is reached, the second cost will be given to each item past that.

Different Cost Choices

While flat-rate costs are most common, a possible rate can also be determined as a percentage of the price being compared or multiplied (cost applied for each quantity purchased)

Control the Display

Set the order in which shipping options appear to a customer. You can also select which one will be selected by default on the cart/checkout pages.
