Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Hide Checkout Shipping Address » How to Hide Shipping To Fields for Virtual-Downloadable Products

  • Resolved notrobo


    Are there, by any chance, simple, comprehensive instructions for “Hiding Shipping Address” option for a virtual/downloadable product? Because I’ve just spent all morning trying to figure this out. I have a virtual-downloadable product, plus the “WooCommerce Hide Checkout Shipping Address” plugin. I can easily see the “Slide/Fade” options, but how do I actually check the box “Hide Shipping Address”? Where is this checkbox? It is no where to be found. Thank you so much!

    I have found that if I add a “Free Shipping Method” to “Shipping Zones” then I see the checkbox for “Hide Shipping Address.” Great! Checked! But then I go to the Product settings page for my virtual/downloadable product, there are no shipping options… UNLESS I uncheck “Virtual” product. Then the only option I have is to change “Shipping Class.” How do I “Hide Shipping Address” for this particular product? Am I missing a step somewhere? Thanks again.

    Oh, and now I just discovered that by adding the “Free Shipping Method” ALL products now have the option of paying for shipping or free shipping. In other words, a customer can check “Free Shipping” when they check out. Bad news. I will have to undo everything I’ve done so far. Why this is so insanely difficult, I don’t know. Why WooCommerce would force customers to include a shipping address for virtual/downloadable products is bewildering. Sorry for whining.

    Hi Notrobo,

    That is not how this plugin works. It hides the shipping address fields for specific shipping methods, not just for virtual and/or individual products.
