Our WooODT Extended Map Addon plugin determinate the shipping charges after calculating the exact distance of the customer's address location. As well, it has a unique feature of offering free shipping up to a certain kilometres (depends as per your requirements), after covering this free shipping distance it will apply the shipping charge per every kilometre automatically.
Here we see how to set WooCommerce delivery charges by kilometer, and the features we will cover as –
- Free shipping up to certain kilometer
- After covering free shipping distance charge per kilometer
- Shipping charge by distance(km) will be calculated on checkout page based on user’s shipping address
So, how to do that?
We need – WooODT Extended plugin and it’s Map Addon plugin.
Once you activated both plugin navigate to Map options menu on WooODT Extended menu and put Your storehouse address – this is the place from where distance of customers’s shipping address will be calculated
Google map API key – sign in to google map and grab an API key and paste it there.
Mention – Up what kilometer you will provide free shipping, For example- to 30 kilometer there is no shipping charge
Cost per kilometer – this will be applied to extra kilometer after free kilometer get cover up, if you put it as 2 USD per km and if the customer’s shipping address is 45 km away, so customer will be charged as (45-30)2=30 USD.
Settings page looks like below screen-shot.
Now we are done and lets see what happen on checkout page.
So as per my settings my free delivery area is up to 5 km, and after that it will cost 2 USD/km. and I am choosing an distance that is 9.3 km away from my store house, so when I put my address on checkout page the plugin automatically calculates the distance from store house and heighlight it on Google map and show the distance to customer, like below screen-shot
Now the distance is 9.3 km and we have free delivery up to 5 km, so the cost should be
(9.3 – 5) * 2 = 4.3 * 2 = 8.6 USD
The same is added as delivery charge by distance on total amount to pay, as below screen-shot.
