Weight zone shipping for WooCommerce


If your WooCommerce store needs to calculate shipping charges based on cart weight and delivery region then this plugin is for you.


This plugin replaces the oik-weightcountry-shipping plugin. Designed to work with WooCommerce 2.6 and 3.0, it is integrated with shipping zones.

Each shipping zone can contain multiple shipping methods with rates that apply to all regions in the zone.


  • Shipping rates based on cart weight and delivery region
  • Unlimited weight ranges
  • Carts with zero weight
  • FREE shipping in selected weight ranges
  • Default rates using the Rest of the World shipping zone
  • Maximum cart weight
  • WooCommerce 2.6, 3.0 and above
  • Available in English, French and Swedish
  • Handling fee as fixed rate or percentage of total cart cost


  • Add Shipping Method for Weight Zone
  • Weight Zone Settings - initial display
  • Weight Zone Settings - shipping rates defined
  • Cart totals
  • Checkout shipping rates


  1. Upload ‘oik-weight-zone-shipping’ to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Set your delivery rates for each Shipping zone in WooCommerce->Settings->Shipping
Which version of WooCommerce does this work on?

Now tested with WooCommerce 4.0.1
Previously tested with WooCommerce 2.6, WooCommerce 3.0 and higher.

What is the separator for the shipping rate table?

Vertical bars. Blanks around values will be ignored.

0 | 9.99| Zero weight
1 | 1.24 | 
2 | 3.45 |
3 | 4.56 
  • Use of slash characters are no longer supported as these are now allowed in the Method Title override.
  • Whether or not you can use a comma depends on your Currency options.
  • If your Thousand or Decimal separator is a comma then it can’t be used as a field delimiter.
  • Enter one rate per line.
How do I set the Method Title?

Set the default Method Title and add overrides in the Shipping Rates table

0 | 9.99| Zero weight
1 | 1.24 |
2 | 3.45 |
3 | 4.56 | Another method title override
10 | 0 | Free shipping between 3 and 10 kgs
999 | ZZZ | Maximum cart weight is 10 kgs
Does this support multiple rates per weight/shipping zone combination?

Yes – from version 0.0.2

Because this plugin is integrated with WooCommerce Shipping Zones you can achieve it by
creating multiple shipping methods using Weight zone shipping.

For each shipping method you add to a zone set the Method Title to reflect the rates.
e.g. UK second class, UK first class.

If you want to define multiple rates in the Shipping Rate table then you will need to use the
Multi rate weight zone shipping for WooCommerce plugin,
which is the premium version of the plugin.

Are there any other FAQs?

Yes. See oik weight zone shipping for WooCommerce FAQS
and Multi rate weight shipping for WooCommerce FAQ’s

I use this plugin on one WP site of a client, where it works very well. Thank you! However I just ralized today that it is not suitable for the usecase in which one wants to have a *minimum* weight set. For example: I use a shipping method up to 30kgs and then I would like to switch to another method, once I'm over 30kgs. This does not work.

This plugin is incredibly easy to use. I was initially frustrated because I was unable to find instructions beyond the standard installation instructions. Turns out that this plugin's instructions are built into the plugin. You receive exactly what you need to know from your WooCommerce Shipping setup page. So easy, so fast, so simple!

Works nicely, easy to set up. Would be great if the handling fee could be set also as a percentage of the cart total (just a pair of lines of code).
