What is Add Custom States Premium?
Add Custom States PREMIUM is a plugin to customize your states to optimize your Woocommerce shipping zones. You can add Woocommerce states, modify Woocommerce states, and even delete Woocommerce states where you are not operating. Woocommerce introduced Shipping Zones concept since Woocommerce 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 or change states names. In case you operate in a single state to optimize your Woocommerce shipping settings, you can remove Woocommerce states that you don’t cover. You can even split some states under regions to easily use in Shipping Zones configuration. For example, if your state has a northern region and southern region, you can delete the single state name and put 2 entries. This is what exactly this plugin provides.
This is essential for Woocommerce shipping zone customization. The states you add will show normally in the states dropdown menu on checkout. The states you add integrates seamlessly with Woocommerce and can work with any shipping plugin and accept different shipping methods such as local pickup, or free shipping. It will also support any custom shipping methods.
Hence, Add Custom States Premium is the first and most important step to optimize your Woocommerce online shop shipping services.
