To set up shipping in WooCommerce, you first define shipping zones, then add methods to those zones and finally values to your methods. You can create as many zones as you want and add many methods and values to each zone.
Customers see only the available methods for their address and the corresponding zone. Each client only fits one belt.
|Zone name||Area (s)||Shipping method|
|Attica||zip code or Attica||Free shipping, Weight based shipping|
|The rest of Greece||Greece||Weight based shipping|
|Inaccessible areas||Greece||Weight based shipping|
Add as many zones as you need, with each zone containing multiple shipping modes.
