Advanced Shipping Validation for WooCommerce


With Advanced Shipping Validation for WooCommerce you can setup your own shipping validation rules. With these rules you can prevent
customers from finishing the checkout process based on your conditions.

Prevent finishing checkout?!
There are valid reasons why you’d want to prevent someone from checking out with products in their cart.
At the checkout is the moment where you definitely know where the products should be shipped, at that time, it could be that
the customer has some products that are not allowed to ship to certain locations.

A common use case with this is the restriction of certain products being shipped from the mainland to states like Hawaii and Alaska.

This plugin creates a Validation Rules page in WooCommerce Shipping which allows you to create any sort of shipping rules you might need. Our business has a category of products which cannot be delivered outside a certain zip code range, however, WooCommerce would still allow the transaction to proceed if there were other products in the cart which could be delivered anywhere. The Advanced Shipping Validation plugin solved that problem with a few simple conditions, and also allowed us to put up a message explaining to our customers why their transaction could not be processed. On top of this being a tremendously useful and free plugin, the plugin author Jeroen provides excellent support.

This plugin is simple to use, yet incredibly powerful. It will save you hours of time - especially if you're a novice programmer. There are other plugins that do similar things but they charge outrageous amounts for subscriptions. Jeroen gives it all to you for free in a simple, easy to understand interface. He is clearly very skilled at what he does, and also exceptionally generous - given that this plugin is completely free. I highly recommend this for anyone that needs to set complicated rules over their Woocommerce shop.
