  3. Click the Install Now button and wait for the installation to complete
  4. Click the Activate button
  5. Visit WooCommerce > Settings > Shipping > Shipping zones to enter shipping methods for each shipping zone.


It’s recommended you always back up your site before updating.


What shipping zones will be added?

Four new shipping zones are added:

  • North Island (Rural)
  • South Island (Rural)
  • North Island
  • South Island

What happens if a shipping zone already exists?

No existing shipping zone will be overwritten. For example, if a shipping zone called North Island was created before the plugin is activated:

  • the existing North Island shipping zone will remain untouched
  • three new shipping zones will be created: North Island (Rural), South Island (Rural), and South Island.

Why is the shipping cost not displaying in the cart/checkout?

At least one shipping method must be set for the shipping zone. Please see WooCommerce’s Flat Rate Shipping tutorial for an example of how to apply a shipping method.

Is the order of the zones important?

Yes, the rural shipping zones must appear above the standard ones in the Zone name column.

Are shipping zones removed if the plugin is removed?

No, deactivating or deleting the plugin will not remove the shipping zones. Shipping zones can be manually removed via WooCommerce > Shipping > Shipping Zones.

Where do the postcodes come from?

Postcodes used for the rural shipping zones are sourced from NZ Post’s Postcodes page.
