WooCommerce Weight Based Shipping è un’estensione fondamentale per il rinomato plugin WordPress, WooCommerce. Questa funzionalità avanzata permette di calculate and apply shipping rates based on the weight of the products in the users' cart.

A crucial factor for e-commerce owners is determining the costs of shipping products to customers. In fact, the dimensions and weight of the goods can significantly influence the final cost of the shipment. Precisely to solve this problem, WooCommerce Weight Based Shipping was born.

Customized Shipping Rates based on Weight

This sophisticated tool allows you to create different weight ranges and assign a specific shipping rate to each. A practical example: you could set a higher shipping cost for products weighing more than 10 kg and a lower cost for those under this limit. This way, shipping rates adapt perfectly to the needs of your e-commerce.

To implement WooCommerce Weight Based Shipping, you will first need to install the WooCommerce plugin on your website. After that, you can download and install the extension Weight Based Shipping from the WooCommerce Marketplace or directly from your WooCommerce account.

Weight-based shipping setup

After activating the extension, you will need to go to your WooCommerce settings and select the “Shipping” tab. Here you will find a new option called “Weight Based Shipping”. By clicking on it, you will be redirected to the extension's configuration page.

In this section, you can start creating weight ranges and corresponding shipping rates. You could, for example, set a weight range from 0 to 1 kg by associating it with a shipping rate of 5 euros. Create a second band from 1 to 2 kg with a shipping rate of 7 euros, and so on.

Customization delle Tariffe in base alla Località

WooCommerce Weight Based Shipping gives you the ability to add additional costs based on your shipping location. You can, for example, set a surcharge for international shipments or for shipments to remote islands. This feature is especially useful if you want to vary your shipping rates based on the destination country or region.

Once you set weight-based shipping rates, they will be automatically applied during the checkout process. When a customer adds products to the cart and checks out, the system will calculate the total weight of the cart and apply the correct shipping rate.

Offer Shipping Details

The WooCommerce Weight Based Shipping extension also offers the ability to add additional shipping information. You will be able to enter a custom description that will appear to customers during checkout, providing additional details about the shipping rate, such as the tracking number, estimated delivery times or information on the courier used.

Additionally, you can limit the application of weight-based shipping rates to specific countries or regions. This feature is very useful if you want to offer free or discounted shipping only to certain destinations.


In sintesi, WooCommerce Weight Based Shipping è un’estensione potente e versatile, in grado di calcolare le tariffe di spedizione in base al peso dei prodotti nel carrello. Con questa funzionalità, potrai personalizzare le tariffe di spedizione in base alle tue esigenze e fornire ai clienti informazioni dettagliate sulla spedizione durante il checkout. Se gestisci un negozio online basato su WooCommerce, WooCommerce Weight Based Shipping è sicuramente un’aggiunta indispensabile.
