Learn about WooCommerce Shipping Zones
If you are a beginner working with WooCommerce Shipping Zones, it is recommended to first read through the documentation.
Be sure that you are aware of how the shipping zones work, and especially that only shipping methods from the first matched zone are being included at checkout.
Add Shipping Cost Suffix
When a user selects an delivery address from the address form, it will be validated and the user will get recieve a notice if delivery is possible or not.
If using this option, the notice will also contain the shipping cost.
Geolocate user position
There is an ability to let users geolocation their current position and interpret it to a postcode.
By clicking the crosshair sign, the user agent position will be geolocated.
The maximum accepted accuracy of the geolocation request can be adjusted.
Before it is possible to start validating delivery addresses, you have to get your Google Maps API Key.
To get started with Google Maps Platform you will need a google billing account. Read this Get Started guide.
Be sure to include the Geocoding API.
