Why UPS Shipping Methods are not listed under WooCommerce Shipping Zones?

In this guide, we will tell you why the shipping methods from UPS are not listed under the WooCommerce Shipping Zones when using the WooCommerce UPS Shipping Plugin. We will also cover a few good examples to understand the process.

WooCommerce Shipping Zones is a great feature. Especially when working with Free Shipping or Flat Rate shipping for different zones. However, WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin is an independent plugin. Hence it doesn’t require to be configured for each shipping zone in WooCommerce. As a result, UPS Shipping methods are not listed under WooCommerce Shipping Zones specifically.

Basically, adding a complete shipping solution like UPS Shipping plugin under WooCommerce Shipping Zones is complete overkill. As UPS Shipping plugin has built-in features for restricting shipping in the desired countries and to enable/disable domestic or international shipping.

So adding it to the WooCommerce Shipping Zones will only result in configuring same shipping settings multiple times for each of your shipping zones

Here is the image showing the WooCommerce Shipping Zones and the shipping methods present under it:

To access the WooCommerce UPS Shipping plugin’s shipping methods, you need to follow the below steps:

The UPS shipping methods will be accessible once you click this option.

Here is a screenshot of all the UPS shipping methods available:

You can select any UPS Shipping methods based on your business case as well as your shipping source and destination countries.

After enabling these settings based on the source and destination of the shipment, the UPS Shipping methods should be available on the cart page as well as on the checkout page.

    Is this still the case that UPS shipping should appear without being set under shipping zones? The UPS methods are not showing up for me, despite several UPS methods being enabled

      Hi Sten,

      Yes, our plugin works independent of WooCommerce zones, you just have to enable ‘Real-time’ rates and services in the plugin settings.

      If you are getting “No shipping methods”, then possible reasons are :
      -When the product weights & dimensions are missing
      -Invalid/Incorrect credentials
      -Incorrect shipper/destination address
      Can you please ensure all the above setting up are configured correctly and then try again?

      If you still face any issues, Kindly share the UPS Request and Response via the support ticket you have raised in Premium forum.
