    Hello all,

    How can I have my shop auto-show/select the standard shipping option at the basket stage?

    I don’t want a customer to have to go through to checkout and enter their address to find the shipping cost. I am only shipping to mainland UK so their is just one standard delivery.

    Can I also force free shipping on orders over £50?

    Thanks in advance,

    Zak

    Hi there,

    By the time the customer reaches the cart page, WooCommerce doesn’t yet know where that customer is from, which is why *auto-selection* of shipping methods isn’t available right-off-the-bat. That said, you can definitely configure WooCommerce to allow for customer to (1) enter their address details on the cart page which (2) then allows for shipping methods to show up. If you’re keen on that approach, you can set that up under **WooCommerce > Settings > Shipping > Shipping Options** and ensuring “Enable the shipping calculator on the cart page” is selected.

    In terms of forcing free shipping above x-amount, the easiest way to do that is to hide all other shipping methods if the cart value >= £50. This can be done using https://woocommerce.com/products/conditional-shipping-and-payments/

    Hi RK,

    Thanks so much for your reply. I took off the shipping calculator as we only have one shipping method/price for orders up to £50 (we only ship to mainland UK), but adding this back in may be the only/best option.

    I want a super-clean user flow where users immediately see the shipping cost as soon as they hit the cart/basket page, requiring no input from them and not having to wait until the checkout page (I think it’s a little late at this point).

    Thanks for the info on the plugin, may be a bit of overkill (+ $80) for what I’m looking for but will bear it in mind and see if theres anything else out there.

    Thanks again RK,

    Zak
