Shipping Zones by Drawing opens the possibility to draw your shipping areas into a map and use them with WooCommerce. You will no more be limited by zip code level when defining a shipping zone.
By connecting a drawn shipping area to a WooCommerce shipping method you can define a shipping cost to every zone.
It is also possible to restrict shipping methods by a distance radius from your store location.
To get knowledge of WooCommerce shipping zones and methods, we recommend a visit to the WooCommerce Shipping Zones Documentation. Remember that the drawn shipping areas will be added as shipping methods into WooCommerce.
If you are experiencing problems with the address validation for your country on the checkout page, please report it in the forum.
To use the plugin with extended functionality, there is a premium version available.
- After activation, go to WooCommerce -> Settings -> Shipping Zones by Drawing.
- Now, go to WooCommerce -> Shipping Zones by Drawing and draw a shipping zone.
Now you are ready to setup your WooCommerce shipping zones and methods at WooCommerce -> Settings -> Shipping.
Add your drawn shipping area as a WooCommerce Shipping Method into a WooCommerce Shipping Zone.
Remember that WooCommerce always chooses the first WooCommerce shipping zone that match an address. So remember to put all your drawn shipping methods per country / region / postal code in the same WooCommerce shipping zone.
