The Conditional Shipping for WooCommerce plugin, in conjunction with the WooCommerce Memberships plugin, empowers you to create a tiered shipping experience based on user membership plans. This article delves into the Require User Membership Plans and Exclude User Membership Plans conditions, enabling you to craft a membership strategy that incentivizes upgrades and provides a seamless shipping experience for your customers.

What You Need

Understanding User Membership Plans

WooCommerce Memberships allows you to define different membership levels (e.g., Free Member, Silver Member, Gold Member). Each membership level can offer unique privileges, including access to exclusive products, discounts, and, as we’ll explore here, special shipping options.

Using Require User Membership Plans

  • Enable Condition: Activate the “Enable condition” box for the desired shipping methods (Flat Rate in your example).
  • Select Membership Plans: Choose the specific membership plans whose members qualify for the chosen shipping method. For instance, you might select “Gold Member” to ensure only members of that tier get access to Flat Rate shipping.

Benefits

  • Incentivize Membership Upgrades: By offering exclusive shipping benefits like free shipping or faster delivery options to higher membership tiers, you motivate customers to upgrade, boosting membership revenue.
  • Enhanced Member Value: Clearly communicate the shipping benefits associated with each membership plan, demonstrating additional value for members and justifying upgrade costs.

Example Scenario

Let’s say you offer free shipping for all orders above $100. You can utilize the “Require User Membership Plans” condition to offer free shipping for any order amount to “Gold Members,” regardless of the order value. This incentivizes customers to upgrade to the Gold tier for the convenience and cost savings associated with free shipping.

Using Exclude User Membership Plans

  • Enable Condition: Activate the “Enable condition” box for the desired shipping methods (currently disabled in your example).
  • Select Membership Plans: Choose the specific membership plans whose members you want to exclude from certain shipping methods. This can be useful for managing limited resources.

Potential Use Case

Imagine you offer a “Local Pickup” option but have limited space to accommodate large order volumes. You could exclude higher membership tiers (e.g., “Gold Member”) from accessing the “Local Pickup” option, prioritizing this method for lower tiers with typically smaller order sizes.

Choosing the Right Option

  • Use “Require User Membership Plans” to grant specific members access to exclusive shipping benefits.
  • Use “Exclude User Membership Plans” to restrict specific members from seeing certain shipping methods.

Additional Considerations

  • Reset Settings: The “Reset Settings” button allows you to revert all inclusions and exclusions back to default settings.
  • Conditional Shipping Pro: Consider the Conditional Shipping Pro version (link: https://wpfactory.com/item/conditional-shipping-for-woocommerce/) for extended features like bulk import options for membership plans, especially if managing a large number of plans or members.

Conclusion

By leveraging User Membership Plans within Conditional Shipping for WooCommerce, you can create a dynamic and targeted shipping strategy that incentivizes membership upgrades, enhances member value, and fosters a sense of exclusivity within your WooCommerce store. Remember to explore the Conditional Shipping Pro version for extended features if managing a large number of memberships.
