Delivery up to X distance
In many cases a delivery is possible by the company or vendor party till 5 or 10 Km after which it automatically changes to pickup.
So in above case the full address is calculated against the store warehouse and then as per map if it is outside the desired a alert will come to choose pickup. Once customer click okay the full page will refresh and pickup will be automatically chosen. If it is inside the said distance then no alert.
So here the full distance is calculated. Do note your API key should be correct and valid for map to function properly.
Delivery up to the shipping postcodes
In this case it will check if customer has put postcode within the back end postcodes of WooCommerce shipping section. If not delivery will show the below alert and upon refresh will be selected to pickup.
You need to put the postcode same as the one at the back end or else it will run in a loop i.e delivery – postcode check – no change to pickup. Thus WooCommerce Radius Shipping can be achieved.
Delivery up to the shipping postcodes per Location ( Special Case)
So in this case you have multiple locations and each location caters till specific post code as per set in ship[ping settings. The above two scenarios included just one location and overall setup but here location 1 caters til X post code location 2 till Y and so on. In that case the back end setting will be like below
So in that case the customer adds his pin code. The nearest location to him is selected by the system

Please do keep in mind this – the first scenario requires Map Addon Plugin and the customisations described are paid in nature.
