ConfigurationOnce active, the Weight/Country shipping method will appear in WooCommerce -> Settings -> Shipping.
Shipping RatesThis is where you set your rates. Shipping rates work in tandem with Country Groups. You always assign rates to a country group. This way countries that have same shipping costs (say European Union) can share this setting.
50|1.10|1First parameter (50 in our example) is the weight in the unit you choose for the shop (pounds, grams, kg, etc.). This rate applies for carts with a total weight up to 50. If the cart is heavier, the next rate is used. If there is no other rate, the “heaviest” – and usually most expensive – rate is used. Second parameter (1.10 in our example) is the shipping charge for carts weighing up to 50. Third parameter (1 in our example) is the number of the country group that this rate applies to. Optional fourth parameter is the override text for the shipping method.
Example of rates settingsYou should have multiple rates for every country group. For example if your package carrier has different rates for parcels weighing 50, 100 and 250 grams for country/countries you defined in country group 1 your rates can look like this:
In this example delivery charges will be as follows:
50|1.10|1 100|1.60|1 250|2.25|1 | up to 250 gms
- carts weighing between 1 and 50 grams – 1.10
- carts weighing between 51 and 100 grams – 1.60
- carts weighing between 101 and 250 grams 2.25
100|3.60|2As you can have unlimited number of Rates and Country Groups you have great flexibility in building your international shipping rates.
