How to Charge WooCommerce Shipping by Item
It seems that today almost everything can be bought and sold electronically. Search for a product on the Internet – buy the product – the product is delivered to your address. From the warmth of your home, we get to the desired products or services in a few clicks.

Given that this way of supply and demand, shopping, and delivery is proving every day to take precedence over others in the future, service and product providers are undoubtedly pleased about this. Namely, there are several reasons for that, and one of the basic ones is that suppliers can reach any client on any side of the world in this way.
