Great video. I been checking for a while a video like this but I will like to understand one thing, when I sell several products how I am going to fix that, I like to price first product $12 second one $3 or third one $3,
Thank you very much
Medium Shipping And Small Shipping...
So the reference point i might not understand when your portraying this example is.
What is your defintion of a small item, A medium item etc etc.
Not only this but more so why is your variance of items that you do when you pick a shipping class its only a dollar more.
For this exact example say im in the USA and i don't mess around with a shipping class and make sure it flat rate?
If i do such a thing as this so called flat rate, to where everything is based on measurements dimensions and width and of course weight.
Is the benefit of this class of shipping a better reference to default terms on lets say.
I have books that are around the same size so i make a shipping class based exactly on that spefifc book etc etc?
Or did i misunderstand everything entirely? And further more if this is true..... Then shouldn't i be looking at usps variances on flat rate shipping?
I apperciate the video i even liked it etc. But when you simply dismiss the shipping method and idealogy behide it, To be frank it just makes me nervous.
Thanks for the video... can you please make a video of freight forwarding shopping quote and charges where a customer will select pickup and destination country plus the height, weight, length and width and the charge displays, then proceed to payment page?
This video is amazing, i was struggling with shipping and spent hours and hours watching and reading and trying to set up a different shipping cost to my products. i was so close but i had missed a step and this video showed that too me. just letting everyone know that woordpress / woocomerce has changed a bit, so why setting up it make look a little different but that shouldn't stop you from following this video.
thank you so much WPTuts - keep this up
Thanks man!! I spent about 3 hours this week between doing everything else, trying to figure out how to add various shipping prices. I had the site setup by a developer with free shipping for everything, but had to go back in and add specific pricing to each. Your explanation helped immediately, and I'm getting it all changed around now. Thanks for taking your time to make this video!!
I'm currently using WooCommerce to create a site and I drop ship some of my products and also sell directly from the warehouse. Is there a way of setting up delivery rates for products that need to be drop shipped and then have products that only qualify for Next Day Delivery, Standard Delivery and Free delivery?
I have 4 different shipping services for every product. Each services contains different cost and different expected delivery time. I wants a layout in which client can choose the shipping services out of that 4 services. How can i do that?
Hi, interesting video, How can I set a limit, for example, the whole shipment will be for free bigger than 100 € ?
Problem : I used the video to build shippment classes, which are working fine and are shown on the order page!
However when hitting the "order" butten, the shipment cost is NOT added to the purchased goods. Any idea what could be wrong ?
Why are the shipment cost not added to the order ? Thanks for you help!
In case the customer orders more than 1 item, how do we calculate the shipping for each extra item for the UK and for another part of Europe? eg. 1 item = £3.95, 2 items = £4.95 3 items = £5.95 and so on...
You'll need to start doing some math's to create a more complex shipping calculation.
Take a look at the second video I did covering advanced shipping charges to get an understanding of how to do it.
i have a woocommerce shop with multiple postage costs
ranging from £1.00 to £4.00
what i would like to do if possible is the following say if a customer purchased 6 items they would be charged for the highest shipping fee of all the items and then 50p for every other item in the cart
great video one thing i never see covered is if you have 20 items in shop and they all have different postage rates what i would like to do is set up so that if you bought 4 items with different shipping costs the highest shipping would be the main cost then say 50p extra per item after that any ideas
WPTuts yes i applied shipping charges in classes and when i add shipping class in product after i update my product when i put address in checkout page no shipping fee showing in simple product shipping fee showing but not in variable product
Thanks for the video and tutorial, I was stuck with a problem of shipping cost more expensive than what I wanted it to be because I had entered a number in the "cost" line at the top. Problem solved thanks !
Great video...what happens when you set this up and the customer adds 3 items to the basket? they will be charged 3 different shipping prices? How do you set that without giving up all your money to shipping? For instance if it costs me $6.70 to ship 1 item and I have that listed, and the customer orders 3, the choices I have are to either #1 - charge the customer all 3 shipping prices (which keeps me from losing profit) or #2 - default to the most expensive shipping charge (which I won't create because this specific product is usually only $6.70 for shipping), meaning I have to eat the other $13 and change in shipping.
Is there a way around that where we can total up weight or something and have that value as the shipping?
hello!! thank you for clear and very useful video. however I have other settings that I couldnt figure out. I want to do shipment charges; for example; total order below 100 usd shipping charge 10 usd and total order above 100 usd shipping charge free. how can I set up this formula?
Hello!! thank you for your help. I already set up the items as the video. there are items less than 100 usd will charge 10 usd shipment cost. however if there is order several of those items and will cost more than 100 usd then the 10 usd shipping cost still appears. how can I avoid that I still couldnt find out.
Very helpful - thank you. I just have a question.... Could you advise what's the best way to incorporate a variety of weighted shipping options on my website please? I'd like an option for orders weighing below 2kg (to be sent via 2nd Class post), an option for orders weighing below 2kg (to be sent via 1st Class post) and finally an option for all orders that are over 2kg to be sent via a Courier. I have downloaded a weighted shipping plug-in....but not sure the best way to tackle this....Thanks in advance.x
I have USPS services set up, but I want to offer a flat rate to International customers who only purchase flat paper 2 dimensional items. I set up the shipping class "Paper". However, if there is a 2D item in the cart AND a 3D item I want it to go to the USPS calculated rate for a package. Right now, it keeps the flat rate option up even if there are items in the cart not in the Paper class. How can I fix this?
I have set up with Canada Post Expedited Parcel Service. How do I put that into the shipping method. I am using boxes so the prices they are changing is per boxes I have set up. How do I do this into the system?
I have some products that ship via large semi truck and other products I can ship via Fedex. I need three options of shipping with the Large products and only 1 option with the smaller... My problem is however all 4 shipping options appear on each product so the customer when ordering the large product always chooses the "Smaller $20" shipping option not the correct "Large $300-$450" shipping option. Not sure if this will help me.
hi there thanks for the grt video...i have set 2 shipping options - FREE and fixed cost....i selected the option of hiding the cost on the checkout page....but it still shows a flat rate even before the address is entered....any thoughts on how to fix this???thanks....
Right now I only sell products from Printful. I contacted the support staff at Printful and they said that this plugin only works if you only have Printful products on your website. I want to sell other products that I will be shipping myself. What can I do to set it up without screwing up my integration with Printful?
Definitely, you can select as many products as you want from the products list page, select Edit from the Bulk Action menu and then click Apply. There you can change loads of parameters for your products and hit Update once done to apply the changes to multiple products at once.
What are some of these 3rd party add-on or plugins I can use? As a vendor adding new products I don't have an option for 'shipping class' so I am unsure how to use woo product vendors so that it functions properly and the seller can choose a drop down option with class options. Thanks
if someone orders 3700 tshirts in one basket.. the flat rates will send you bankrupt- Shipping system needs price per weight calculator, to calculate the order in the basket by total weight of all items. and no shipping classes needed! just calculate the cost of the parcel instead of individual items. how foolish to calculate individual items.. people put more than one thing in the basket.. thats a system for dumm and dummerer And you can't delete flat rates, as if you do the other shipping methods disappear from the checkout too, including the table rates plugin methods
individual product shipping programming is insane, and unnecessary. all we need is a weight and price per gram or kg calculator at checkout. Why on earth the individual products need shipping prices and methods programming is beyond me! just calculate the final weight of the order at the end.. stuuuuupid
its insane the shipping in woo commerce.. my ecwid store has staggered prices such as 'orders which add up to 350 grams max will charge 0.03 dollars a gram and then i can say 'if over 350 grams to 5 kg' then charge 0.02 dollars per gram (r whatever rate i wish)
it doesnt need a shipping method and pricing adding to each individual product at all. just add weight to products, and let the software calculate shipping from total weight of order when they go to checkout
To be honest after using Ecwid.Com's shipping table rates, which took me five minutes to set up, i have been messing for two days and nights with the woo commerce shipping prices system, and its spaghetti junction. i can not get it to do anything logical at all, and thats with a table rate shipping plugin installed to help
if i remove flat rates no shipping method appears despite having weight based shipping rates.. it wont add up a load of things in the basket as a single total weight based on so many fractions of a cent/dollar per gram/kg
Whatever i do, you have to count individual shipping costs on each item in the basket.. Woo-Commerce shipping plugins and the basic generic functions are a total mess.. needs seriously simplifying. Otherwise Woo Commerce is great. But the shipping programming is insanely difficult, and whatever you do, there is always something that doesnt add up as i want it to
I've created the shipping zones and set up the flat rate shipping, but for some reason, whenever I select a product and a shipping method, nothing extra is added to the cost for shipping, no idea why. What do I need to check? Thanks
Hello, great info! I've just tried this and followed every step. I then applied the small ppostage option to my products in 'quick edit' and it didnt work. It added the heading 'Flat Rate Postage" as a shipping option, but there was no value attached to it (therefore essentially allowing free shipping). I tried changing the values in the the cost section so it had a basic fee to fall back on, but still it didnt help and there was no value added at the end for the cart. What am I doing wrong? Doe it make any difference that I have products with variable attributes linked to them? I also have other shipping zones set up for international post. Your help would be appreciated.

I am having an issue with local pick up. In California I charge my local rate for local pick up. If my client has the item shipped, Woocommerce is adding the tax rate. If they choose local pickup, it is not adding any taxes.
Hello and thanks for your video, very helpful. I am hoping you can help me with a situation I can't seem to fix.
I have done my flat rate shipping setting and they are as follows. My shipping requirements are quantities, so what I have is the following. ( 1) up to 4 products purchased shipping is £3.40 (2) 5 products or more shipping is £6.80 (3 ) no shipping class cost £6.80.
So my question is , how do I apply my shipping rates by quantity. I really hope you can help.
Looking forward in hearing from you. Thanking you for your time, much appreciated, regards Angela.
Great video! One small issue. I am setting up taxation on my shipping as well. I need a standard 10% tax on the shipping that I provide. So, for example, a customer gets charged 40Rs. as shipping, then with tax of 10% it becomes Rs.44. I am just not able to do this. I have tried various methods. I am using the Weight based shipping plugin for my shipping. Please help
If you dont have SSL on your website then the shipping will not work because your server is not encrypted to accept credit cards and other forms of payment so Woocommerce will not allow you to fully set up shipping methods
