    It would be nice if the plugin would just add to the title defined in the shipping method, but instead it completely replaces it based on the package choices that are available. Is there a way to use a filter hook and rename it include (USPS) at the end of all shipping options returned by WooCommerce Services?

    Hey @klishb!

    Are you referring to the delivery option on the label itself? Or something different? If something else, could you share a screenshot, perhaps?

    Hi @shaunkuschel,

    Sorry no I’m talking about in the cart and checkout. The title of each shipping method can normally be renamed in WooCommerce settings. Let’s say I name a method “Post Office”. Ordinarily that would be displayed in the shopping cart/checkout pages. The title you define is replaced by WooCommerce Services though based on the best packages that the logic determines are options. So even if though I have named the shipping method “Post Office” that gets replaced by “Priority Mail” or “Flat Rate: Priority Mail” for example. Whereas if I name a shipping method “Free In-Store Pickup” then I see that actually displayed as a shipping option when checking out. Does that make sense? If not I can try to get some screenshots. Thanks.

    WooCommerce Services cannot be used anymore for determining shipping rates, therefore it is not usable as a shipping method, but just to print shipping labels.

    If you are still able to use it as a shipping method you are using a very old version of the plugin.

    That service has been replaced by our USPS extension: https://woocommerce.com/products/usps-shipping-method/

    I can assure you our plugin is up to date. We’ve been using the plugin since before the feature was discontinued. Please see this page:

    https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/woocommerce-services/

    It states the following:

    WooCommerce Services no longer provides the option to set up live shipping rates in stores as of the release of WooCommerce 3.5. Live rates will continue to work for stores currently using them.

    It’s not a huge deal. I just wanted to know if there was a filter hook so I could maintain the USPS title I gave it on the back end so customers checking out know how that option will be shipped if they choose it.

    Hey @klishb!

    Sorry for the delay getting back to you- we’re quite swamped right now due to a significant increase in volume.

    Our older API-based shipping methods have the feature you’re referring to (using defaults as placeholders but allowing them to be overwritten, but Services doesn’t currently have that option. I’d suggest posting it on the Ideas Board for visibility and tracking, in addition to allowing other users to add votes to indicate the need (since that does help our development team determine priorities and I didn’t see that suggestion posted there yet).
