  • Currently, the customers that live outside the delivery zone will not see the shipping method in the checkout page.
    How can I always show the shipping method in the checkout page, including for those customer that doesn’t live in the delivery zone.

    I want the shipping method to be avialable for the customer to see in the checkout page even if they live outside the delivery zone.
    And then when they click place order, they will get an error that says: they live outside the delivery zone.

  • good question!

    I am a bit stuck at a similar point.

    I have a local food delivery, I want free shipping or pick up at the shop for all that are in the drawn area, and no shipping but pick up for everybody not in the drawn area. can you share some knowledge about how to? I am trying for several days xD

    to begin with @beyi. This can simply be solved. Create one WooCommerce shipping zone that covers your entire country e.g. In that zone, then place one ‘Local pickup’-method and one ‘Shipping Zones by Drawing’-method with your drawn zone as a restriction.

    @mightmay, your desire is harder to achieve. This is not how WooCommerce shipping zones and methods are meant to function. What is the purpose of showing a shipping method if it cant be used by the customer?

    Hi, I am using this as a food delivery system.
    Here is the reason why I want the option to be shown all the time.
    Currently, in the checkout page, the delivery option would not show up unless customer input an address which is inside my delivery zone.
    This can cause me to lose some customers, if they scroll down and didn’t see the “delivery” option. Because they might want to look at the delivery option before typing their address. They could misunderstood and think that I don’t offer delivery. And they might even live inside the delivery zone, but they just haven’t type in their address yet. And then they already left my website.

    thanks for you answer!

    I just think there is a misunderstanding. I have this little restaurant, we want to deliver in an area that I draw on the plugin.

    All the customers within the area shut get shown the options “pickup” or “delivered”

    The customers outside the drawn area should get only the local pickup as an option. I think this is kinda exactly what your plugin is made for, I just cant get it running.

    would be amazing if you could help me with this πŸ™‚

    @beyi, yes this is exactly what the plugin is made for and yes there must be a misunderstanding πŸ™‚ because I still advise you to use the setup as in the former answer.

    WooCommerce Zone -> “Local Pickup” method
    -> “Shipping Zones by Dra..” method -> Restrict by Zone(drawn)

    How are your current setup?

    @mightmay, I see. It’s a totally legitimate concern, but IΒ΄m sorry it is just not how WooCommerce checkout page is designed. πŸ™

    solved! the mistake was that my checkout automatically added a different shipping address that disturbed my tests. so very cool, all like you said and works perfectly πŸ™‚

    Great! πŸ™‚

    @arosoft now that I had everything working, I did a new wordpress installation, with woocommerce plugin, food online plugin and nothing else, just setting up the basics of the site.

    so now the last step is to download and install your plugin, the shipping zones.

    when i do this, my media uploader changes and I canΒ΄t select any images for products etc.
    Plus, when I wanna go to adjustments for shipping zones plugin, there is an error saying I should check my emails.

    it took me a good while finding out that the shipping zones plugin causes this error.

    I just have no glue why or what I possibly did wrong.

    Installed wp from hoster, installed the basic plugines I need, and then straight after installing shipping zones, the error in the media manager and the error when trying to go into shipping zone settings.

    any idea? thanks πŸ™‚
