New Feature: Shipping Rates by Zone
We are excited to announce a new feature in our WooCommerce shipping plugin that allows you to set shipping rates for specific shipping zones. With this feature, you can now offer more flexible and customised shipping options to your customers based on their location.
Here are some highlights of this feature:
Create unlimited shipping zones: You can create as many shipping zones as you need, based on countries, states, or zip codes.
Set shipping rates by zone: For each shipping zone, you can set different shipping rates based on the shipping method, weight, price, or a combination of these factors.
Override default rates: You can override the default shipping rates for certain shipping zones.
To get started with this feature, simply go to the Shipping Zones tab in your WooCommerce settings, and add or edit a shipping zone. You can then select the shipping methods you want to offer, and set the rates and conditions for each method.
