What is Add Custom States Free?
Add Custom States Free is a plugin to customize your states to optimize your Woocommerce shipping zones. It will allow you to choose any country (as long as it doesn’t have already built-in states such as India or US…,etc.) you already stated in your Woocommerce settings as ‘Allowed Country’ to sell and ship to, and add any number of states you want. Very simple and straight forward. Woocommerce introduced Shipping Zones concept since version 2.6. Still, not all countries have all its states setup in Woocommerce database out of the box. Accordingly, you may need to add custom states to optimize your Woocommerce shipping settings.
Can Add Custom States Free Change Built-in States?
Well, not really. The free version will not enable you to change only one country, and you can not delete Woocommerce predefined states like for example those coming with US. On the other hand, Add Custom States PREMIUM version will allow you to choose any country you already stated in your Woocommerce settings as ‘Allowed Country’ to sell and ship to, and add, delete or edit the name of any state.
Furthermore, Add Custom States PREMIUM version, will allow you to add any number of states to any country, as long as you identified as ‘Allowed Country’ in your Woocommerce store setup. Also, it will allow you to manipulate the states that already come with Woocommerce as well. For example for some countries such as the US, you will be able to add or delete states, delete states and replace by regions names…etc., as you see required.
Will Add Custom States PREMIUM affect the built-in countries?
The beauty of Add Custom States PREMIUM and even the FREE version, that they don’t change the main states files that come with Woocommerce and you can always revert to original states by deactivating the plugin if you want at any time.
The plugin is very user friendly and requires no settings. Just install it and you will be on your way customizing your region the way you want.
The free version is free to use with any number of sites and any number of states but just for a single country as stated earlier.
Please, if you find this plugin helpful, consider to buy the premium version which will help us to continue the development and provide you with new plugins. 🙂
