WooCommerce provides some built-in shipping options for online business owners. These include the Flat Rate Shipping and Free Shipping. With these options, the store owners can easily provide custom shipping rates for their customers. However, this doesn’t imply WooCommerce shipping to be that simple. While the store owners may be providing free or flat rate shipping, they themselves need to ship that product via a shipping carrier. As a result, these packages are shipped via carriers like UPS, FedEx, etc. WooCommerce store owners who provide the option to track the shipment may require the tracking numbers from these shipping carriers.
