Weight Based Shipping is a simple yet flexible shipping method for WooCommerce focused mainly on cart
weight (but not limited to) to calculate shipping cost. Plugin allows you to add multiple rules based on various
- WooCommerce 5.6 (requires WooCommerce 3.2+)
- WordPress 5.8 (requires WordPress 4.0+)
- PHP 7.x, 8.x (requires PHP 5.6+)
Table Rate Shipping
You can create as many shipping rules as you need for different customer countries, cart weight and subtotal
Flexible Price Calculation
Each profile can be configured to expose a constant price (like Flat Rate) or a progressive price based on
Shipping Classes Support
For each shipping class you have you can override the way shipping price is calculated for it.
Sometimes it’s needed to rate every, for example, 500g of cart weight rather than a real weight. That also
Each shipping rule can be easily configured as a flat rate shipping.
Conditional Free Shipping
In some cases you want to ship for free depending on subtotal, total weight or some other condition. That can be achieved in a moment with this plugin.
