Shipping Zones by Drawing for WooCommerce

Description

Shipping Zones by Drawing opens the possibility to draw your own shipping areas into a map and use them with WooCommerce. You will no more be limited by zip code level when defining a shipping zone.
By connecting a drawn shipping area to a WooCommerce shipping method you can define a shipping cost to every zone.
It is also possible to restrict shipping methods by a distance radius from your store location.

To get knowledge of WooCommerce shipping zones and methods, we recommend a visit to the the WooCommerce Shipping Zones Documentation. Remember that the drawn shipping areas will be added as shipping methods into WooCommerce.
If you are experiencing problems with the address validation for your country on the checkout page, please report it in the forum.

As a small business it is really help me control who can actually place an order online without human intervention. I was losing a lot of money averaging freigt cost and getting orders from where I could not ship.
