Set the default shipping method in WooCommerce

You can set the default shipping method that will be selected at checkout for each shipping zone.

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. Click Settings in the expanded WooCommerce menu.
  4. Click 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.
    • To do so, select and hold the three bars on the left-side of the shipping method name (local pickup, flat rate, or free shipping) and drag it up or down in the list.
    • The default shipping method for that shipping zone will be the top, enabled method in the list.
