Can I Use WooCommerce flat rate/free shipping for rates and pay postage using shiping plugin?
Yes. You can use the WooCommerce default flat rate shipping or free shipping method and at the same time pay for the postage using WooForce shipping plugin. In this article, I’ll explain how to achieve this in the case of Stamps.com plugin. But this is applicable for all other shipping plugins by WooForce.
This can be simply done by disabling the ‘Stamps.com shipping method on your WooCommerce store as shown below:
This will restrict showing the stamps.com real-time shipping rates on your cart or checkout page. Now if you enable Flat Rate or Free Shipping it will show on cart or checkout page.
But you can still pay for your postage using the WooForce stamps.com plugin .For that, you need to click on the ‘create shipment’ button that will appear on the order page of your WooCommerce store as shown below.
Now you can print the label for this shipment.
