I can setup something like this with your plugin? https://prnt.sc/hsvpyp
So for example if the customer selects a quantity of 2 and the item weight has been set to 1 then the shipping costs will be: 4.95*2
You can set up the plugin to charge as on the screenshot. I.e. by the total order weight. Please check the fully-functional demo staging to make sure the plugin is suitable for you.
Hi! would your plugin work for a situation like this:
Product A weighs 80g and would be $2.50 to ship alone
Product B weighs 150g and would be $3.50 to ship alone
but together they would ship for $4.50
Hi, the plugin can be set up to charge on the total order weight. So, it’s suitable for you if it’s ok to charge $2.5 for any orders up to 80g, $3.50 for up to 150g and $4.50 for any orders above 150g.
I’m having an issue where the plugin is incompatible with Woocommerce UPS Shipping by Woocommerce. Is this a known issue? They worked fine together for quite some time, however now I cannot select weight based options.
Hello, there is no known conflicts with UPS plugins. I also don’t see how WBS and UPS might affect each other?
Thank you for replying. When I run both plugins at the same time it defaults to UPS Ground. If I select weight based or next day, it reverts back to ground after attempting to update the total price. Each plugin seems to run fine independently.
I’m also running Packages Configuration for WooCommerce.
I doesn’t looks to me as related to WBS. You can try temporarily disabling other plugins to check if there is one causing the issue. Probably Packages Configuration is the culprit.
Packages Configuration seems to have been the problem. Can you recommend a solution for conditional shipping options and packaging by class? I drop ship from multiple locations, so an all in one freight solution doesn’t work.
You can try Multiple Packages for WooCommerce or WooCommerce Conditional Shipping and Payments.
The Postal service I am using charges $20 for first half kg and then $5 for additional half kg. How to do that in this plugin as in the screenshot, it shows rule settings but after I have purchased and downloaded there is no step weight and rule settings. Help, please
in addition, can you help me configure a scenario in which I want a product with weight 0.7kg to be shipped in the Philippines. The first half kg I want to charge $21 and any additional half kgs will be charged $5.
Postal Servies I am using considers 0.1kg over first half kg as additional 0.5kg. Hope it makes sense to you. Please help
The version of the plugin on the video is pretty old. The plugin has a couple major versions since then.
To charge $21 for first 0.5kg + $5 for each 0.5 kg after that, create a rule with Base Cost = $21 and Weight Rate set to ‘charge $5 per each 0.5kg over 0.5kg”.
Hi, previously I asked about how to set $21 per 0.5 kg $5 for an additional 0.5 kg and with the help of your support, it went well. Now, there are some items let’s say a t-shirt which weighs less than 0.5kg, I want that if a client buys one t-shirt, it should automatically be considered as 0.5kg or if an item is few grams less than 1kg it should be considered as 1kg as the scale in my postal services provider is based on exactly per 0.5kg. I can set the weight of each shirt 0.5kg and it will be fine in case if someone buys only one t-shirt but in case if someone buys two t-shirts, it will charge him extra $5 which is not fair as even two shirts don’t weigh 0.5kg collectively.
In short, if someone buys one t-shirt, even though its weight is set less than 0.5kg, it should be considered as 0.5kg and if someone buys multiple shirts, it should count individual weight and then calculate overall based on 0.5 or 1kg criteria. I hope my question makes sense to you.
Waiting for your response. Thanks
Hi, i created a rule that allows only shipping to OR, WA, CA, ID, NV. However, when saving the rule and going to the shipping options when creating an order it still lists all of the other states in the US in the drop-down box. I would like to have the other states removed from the list. Anyway, to remove the other states from the list or make it explicit to the user that shipping is limited to only 5 states?
Hi, destinations you choose in a shipping rule do only constrain that shipping rule. To specify which locations customers see on the cart/checkout pages, please check the WooCommerce -> Settings -> General -> Selling Locations and Shipping Locations options.
When i goto WooCommerce > Settings -> General -> Selling Locations and Shipping Locations i can only constrain by Country, there is no option there to constrain by State- i need to be able to constrain by State. I’ve updated Woocommerce to the latest version.
Ok, right, WooCommerce doesn’t allow states for the options by default, only countries are allowed. It’s out of scope of the WBS plugin anyway. You can try to look for an additional plugin allowing that, or use a custom code snippet, like this.
ok, thanks… i was confused by the weight based enabling rules by stateprovince… a bit different than restricting sales by states…. that code snippet helped.
When checking out, my site is saying that shipping information is not configured. We haven’t changed anything on our end.
We didn’t change anything too It must be something changed in your side though, like shipping rules, other settings or plugins.
Hi Usama, that’s actually how the plugin works. When you set it to ‘charge $X per each 0.5kg kg’ it charges for each 0.5kg ‘chunk’ of the total weight, so the price might $X, 2x$X, 3x$X, but never, say, 1.5x$X or 2.5x$X.
so you are saying we can’t do what i have asked for ?
I mean it’s possible and it’s the way the plugin is actually working right now.
Hi there – I have 3 rules, UK, Europe and Rest of World. On the previous plugin I was using, ‘Rest of World’ was an option but I cannot see that here? Thanks
Hi, I believe you are talking about the built-in WooCommerce function called Shipping Zones. You can create shipping zones you need and add Weight Based Shipping methods there. For more info on shipping zones setup please refer to the WooCommerce documentation: https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/setting-up-shipping-zones/.
Hi there, what I am referring to is usually when you type ‘Re…’ when entering specific countries, in the same way you select any other country, ‘Rest of World’ usually pops up as an available country. It’s not a shipping zone, but more like a country option.
It’s fine, in the end, I just duplicated my Europe Zone, added the UK to it and changed it to ‘exclude these places’ which is essentially the rest of the world as my other 2 options are UK shipping and Europe.
As far as I know, WooCommerce never had “Rest of the World” item in the country list. Weight Based Shipping also didn’t add that also. So, it might be added by some other plugin you have installed.
Anyway, glad you find a way to set it up.
Hi there, I am really stuck on a function which I need to create for my client… I am looking for a way I can create my own customize Woocommerce Shipping Zones and not limited to default encompasses country’s zones, for example I do not want countries, I want customize zones which are not “countries” but “locations/areas” inside Hong Kong like 7-11s and Circle K international chain of convenience stores… it seems there is no fields or customize selections I can choose from, hope you can help me on this???

Hi, I believe I have answered your question here.
Hi, I have an older version of this plugin and I want to upgrade, how do I do this without losing my existing configuration please?
Hi, just uninstall the version you currently have installed and install the new one. Don’t worry about your shipping rules, they will appear in the new version,
Do you have a guide or thread on updating the plugin correctly after its installed so its up to date. thanks
doh – answered above. sorry guys
Right Thank you for the update.
I have 2 items in the cart, each belonging to a different shipping class. I’d like both shipping rates to sum up on checkout. Is it possible with this plugin?
Yes, it is. You can specific per-class rates under the Shipping Classes section. All rates for specified classes are summed up.
I have installed WooCommerce Weight Based Shipping version 4.2.2 and save settings for my website’s shipping policy.
Today, I bought newest version 5.1.5
How should I install new version without deleting all current settings?
Hi, just uninstall a previous version and the new one. Don’t worry about your shipping rules, they are preserved on uninstall.
I recently updated the free version of the plugin and all the rules disappeared. After some I search here I saw a post where you recommended buying the paid version to solve the problem. I have bought and installed the paid plugin but rules still not visible.
I know the rules are in the database because they still show up in the front end but it is not possible to make any updates to the rules because they are not visible in the settings at the backend.
How can this be fixed?
Thank you for purchasing. However, I believe I didn’t recommend the paid version to fix the issue. It just looks unfair to me.
Could you attach a screenshot of the plugin settings page? What was the previous version of the plugin? What are your current versions of WordPress and WooCommerce?
My apologies if I misunderstood or misinterpreted what you said.
Screenshot of settings page: https://prnt.sc/iftany
Screenshot of WBS version: https://prnt.sc/iftakd
Screenshot of WBS at frontend: https://prnt.sc/ifta1o
The previous free WBS version is 5.2.0 but the problem was there before that update. I think the last version that worked was the first one that was installed – 5.0.5 but I’m not sure.
Wordpress version is 4.9.4, Woocommerce version is 3.0.9 but the problem had showed up before woocommerce was updated to 3.0.9.
Thank you. As per the screenshots you don’t have any WBS shipping methods added under shipping zones. However, you might have shipping rules in the global WBS configuration. Could you please check WooCommerce -> Settings -> Shipping -> Weight Based Shipping (http://prntscr.com/igo9us)?
