Free shipping + Flat rate and hide other methods for WooCommerce


This plugin creates new “Free Shipping” and “Flat Rate” methods, extended from the ones on WooCommerce core, with the possibility of making unavailable any other shipping methods in the same zone when this one is available.

This is set by instance, and not globally like on other plugins, so you can fine-tune which methods are hidden when one (or more) free shipping or flat rate options are active per zone.

There’s also a new “All products are in the same shipping class” option on the “Free shipping requires…” field, to allow activation of this method only if all the products in the cart belong to a specific shipping class.
On our “Flat Rate” method a “Flat rate requires…” field is added with the same option mentioned above.

after activations there’s no change in the website. I tried to find the plugin options for days but I couldn’t, I tried to contact the developer and they took the time to write me back to say they won’t give me support. No screenshots, no documentation. Maybe it’s broken. I’ll never know, I lost my time here
