Set the default shipping method in WooCommerce

Each shipping zone can be assigned a default shipping method to be selected during checkout.

Required: Ensure you have at least one Shipping zone set up before you begin. If not, set up a shipping zone first.
  1. Sign in to WordPress.
  2. Click WooCommerce from the left-hand menu.
  3. Select Settings in the expanded WooCommerce menu.
  4. Click on the Shipping tab.
  5. Edit the Shipping Zone by clicking the Edit link or the zone name.
  6. Reorder the Shipping Methods by dragging and dropping the shipping method.
    • You can do so by selecting and holding the three bars on the left-hand side of the shipping method name (local pickup, flat rate, or free shipping) and dragging it up or down.
    • The default shipping method for that shipping zone will be the top, enabled method in the list.
