FedEx Home Delivery for Residential Addresses

In this article, we will explain how you can use the FedEx Home Delivery shipping service for your residential addresses when using the WooCommerce Shipping Plugin for FedEx with Print Label.

FedEx is an amazing shipping service that delivers packages to almost all types of addresses. It uses FedEx Ground for commercial shipments and FedEx Home Delivery for residential ones. Our WooCommerce FedEx Shipping plugin allows store owners to do the same. Users can easily use the options in our plugin in order to change between the two types of addresses. However, many store owners find it difficult to use it according to their needs.

Here is one of our customers who had a similar problem. Let us check it out.

We have checked “Default to residential delivery” as most of our customers are residential. However, we do often sell to commercial customers and many of them are getting confused as the ground option only shows “FedEx Ground Home Delivery.” Many of our commercial customers are forced to choose the FedEx 3 day option as they are concerned the Home delivery option won’t deliver to them since they are a business.

  • Is there a way to overwrite the shown text to just say “FedEx ground” to avoid this confusion?
  • We can still ship “home delivery” to our residential customers.

To show the FedEx Home Delivery in the checkout, enable the “Ground Home Delivery” as shown below:

enable fedex home delivery checkbox within the WooCommerce FedEx plugin

Now, as soon as the customer enters a residential address, the FedEx Home Delivery rate will be visible at the checkout as shown below:

If you are shipping to commercial addresses enable “FedEx Ground” as shown below:
