Now since we have successfully simplified the price and weight calculation for the products, let us create some shipping rules for our products. But before that let us take a quick look at the WooCommerce Table Rate Shipping Pro plugin.


<h2 srcset=WooCommerce Table Rate Shipping Pro plugin

WooCommerce Table Rate Shipping Pro is one of the best shipping rates calculators,

  • Product Weight
  • Product Quantity
  • Cart Value/Price
  • Shipping Classes
  • Product Category
  • Destination Address (Shipping Zones, Country, State, City, ZIP Codes, etc)

Using the plugin, you can create shipping rules based on which the shipping rates will be calculated and displayed in the cart and checkout page. Since we have already configured the measurement of weight and the price of the product using WooCommerce Measurement Price Calculator plugin, we can now create shipping rules based on the product weight.

Shipping Rules

Once all the measurements are configured at the product level using WooCommerce Measurement Price Calculato the ones shown in the image below.

The below shipping rules clearly state the following shipping options will be visible tomers on the cart page.

  • Local Pickup – For product weight below 50 lbs.
  • Standard Shipping (5-7 business days) – Charging $5 and $0.2 per lb up to 50 lbs.
  • Express Shipping (2-3 days) – Charging $10 and $0.2 per lb up to 50 lbs.
  • Guaranteed 1 Day Shipping – Charging a flat rate of $18.

Now, all we need to the cart and check how the rates are showing.

Check Cart Page

Once we add the product to the cart page, we can easily see the difference on the product page itself. The following image shows the way price is calculated on the product page.

Now let us take a quick look at the shipping rates on the cart page.

Shipping rates on the cart page

As you can clearly see, the shipping rates are calculated based on the shipping rules created by the WooCommerce Table Rate Shipping Pro plugin. However, let us see how the rates were actually calculated in this case.

Weight per Meter = 1.5 kgs
Length Selected = 20 meters
Total weight = 1.5 x 20 = 30 kgs

Hence, based on our shipping rules, the shipping rates for 30 kgs must be,

  • Local Pickup
  • Standard Shipping – $5 + 30 x $0.2 = $11
  • Express Shipping – $10 + 30 x $0.2 = $16
  • Guaranteed Delivery – $18

As you can see the shipping rates returned on the cart page are exactly the same as expected.

Final Thoughts…

This article is about how easily you can calculate shipping rates for your products, especially the products which are not sold in quantities of 1. These products include wallpapers, flooring, metallic wires, etc. All the mentioned products are either sold based on their length or area. Hence, it is not convenient for the shippers to pack and ship the products.

      Hi Nemax,

      With our shipping pro plugin, you can configure the shipping rules based on “Weight” ; “Item count/qty” ; “Price” criteria.
      But unfortunately, to configure shipping rules based on “dimensions” of the products is not possible.
      However, if you would like to configure rules based on “Weight”, then you can easily achieve it with our plugin.

      Regards,
