You can calculate shipping costs based on the weight of orders made by the customer on your WordPress Ecommerce website. WordPress Ecommerce is a packaged service that allows anyone to start his eCommerce shop simply by registering his domain name and then subscribing to the WordPress Ecommerce plan.
For enabling the weight-based shipping cost feature you need to log in to your WordPress Ecommerce website and then navigate to Plugins -> Add New page. Search for WooCommerce Weight Based Shipping plugin. Install and activate it, upon activation the plugin will allow you to add multiple rules for shipping based on various conditions such as:
- Order Weight, Subtotal, & Destination: You can easily create multiple shipping rules as required for various order destinations, weights, and subtotal ranges.
- Flexible Price Calculation: On the basis of the cart’s weight, a rule can be set to expose a constant or a progressive price.
- Conditional Free Shipping: You can also set up a free shipping threshold.
- Shipping Classes Support: For every shipping class, you can override the way the shipping price is calculated.
All these options can be easily managed from WooCommerce -> Settings page, under the ‘Shipping’ tab.
