How to use the WooCommerce Shipping Plugin for FedEx only to print shipping labels

The WooCommerce Shipping Plugin for FedEx with Print Label is an amazing plugin that allows WooCommerce store owners to offer various FedEx shipment services and their respective rates to customers. By using this plugin you can even print the shipping labels for the orders you receive. This feature saves a lot of time. However, if you just want to use this plugin to print the shipping labels alone and don’t want to offer the FedEx rates, that’s also possible.

To understand this use case in a better way let us check out a question raised by one of our customers.

Rich: How do I enable flat rate shipping using WooCommerce Shipping Plugin for FedEx with Print Label? I mainly bought the plugin to get my FedEx rates and print a label.

As you can see here, Rich wants to offer only the Flat rate as the shipping method to his customers. As you already know that this shipping method comes default with WooCommerce and you can set a constant rate for all your orders. You can refer to the following image.

Moreover, you can also use our plugin to print the shipping label. In order to do that, you just need to set up the Flat rates in the WooCommerce shipping zones and add shipping method for each zone that you want to create with the Flat rate.

After doing this, you have to go to the FedEx settings under the WooCommerce shipping settings. Here, you need to disable the Realtime Rates option. Check out the image below for disabling the Real-time Rates.

Doing this will hide all the FedEx rates that come up in the Cart and you can print the shipping labels as usual.
