    am trying to make the calculate shipping fields mandatory at cart page.
    so that if a customers enters zip code. i can use it to tell him about the shipping service availability at that particular location.

    so, i want it make as a mandatory field. if that field is not entered they should not be able to check out.

    Pls. help me upon this. am using mystile theme and woocommerce.
    if more info needed ready to post.

    This is a big customisation and not something we can do for you in support.

    I must question whether this is a good idea though. As a customer I'd be extremely frustrated by this. The shipping information is given at checkout, there's no need to force it at the cart. Also what happens if someone skips directly to the checkout bypassing the cart?

    hi jameskoster, thanks for the reply
    literally why i want to do this is, in our purpose we are not going to ship on interior places. so, need to make this field mandatory.

    am trying to remove the checkout option on the top of the theme. and also am not going to show checkout link any where in the site, so the person will have to go through cart only. Is this a good practice?
