The Conditional Shipping for WooCommerce plugin goes beyond simply enabling or disabling shipping methods. It empowers you to define intricate rules based on various Conditional Shipping Conditions. This article delves into these conditions, equipping you to craft highly customized shipping experiences for your WooCommerce store.

Conditions: The Heart of Customization

These conditions act as building blocks for your shipping rules. When a condition is met, a specific action is triggered, such as enabling or disabling a shipping method.

Exploring the Available Conditions

  • Order Amount: Set minimum or maximum order amounts to trigger specific shipping methods. This is ideal for offering free shipping above a certain purchase threshold.
  • Customer Location: Control shipping based on customer location. You can require or exclude shipping to specific cities or even restrict it by user roles, IDs, or membership plans.
  • Payment Gateways: Link shipping availability to the chosen payment method. This allows you to offer exclusive shipping options for specific payment methods, like faster delivery for express checkout.
  • Product Details: Leverage product information to define shipping behavior. You can require or exclude shipping based on specific products, categories, tags, or shipping classes. This is helpful for handling bulky items or products requiring special handling.
  • Date and Time Restrictions: For time-sensitive deliveries, you can set conditions based on specific dates or timeframes. This might be useful for perishable items or offering special promotions during specific times.

Additional Considerations

  • Reset Settings: This option allows you to reset all configurations within the Conditions section to their default state. Use this with caution, as it will erase any custom rules you’ve created.

Remember: These conditions can be combined using the Conditional Shipping Options (covered in a separate article) to create powerful and nuanced shipping rules. With this level of control, you can tailor your shipping strategy to perfectly align with your business needs and customer expectations.
