Solution: Add Hyperlink to Shipping Method Label @ Cart & Checkout in WooCommerce

Let’s say you run an online store that sells handmade jewelry, and you offer a variety of shipping methods to your customers, including standard shipping, expedited shipping, and international shipping. Typically, customers choosing international shipping would look for additional information about shipping options. This link directs users to a ‘Shipping FAQ’ page, to understand more about the selected shipping method.

 The code given below adds a hyperlink to the label ‘Shipping FAQ’ that is specifically applied to the Flat rate (‘flat_rate:25’) shipping method. If you desire to display this hyperlink for other shipping methods, you will need to retrieve the respective shipping method IDs accordingly.

add_filter('woocommerce_cart_shipping_method_full_label', 'ts_shipping_method_label', 10, 2);

function ts_shipping_method_label($label, $method) {
    // Check if the full shipping method ID matches the one you want to modify
    if ($method->get_id() === 'flat_rate:25') {
        $label .= ' (<a href="">Shipping FAQ</a>)';
    return $label;


The output shows that the clickable link is generated for the shipping method label ‘Shipping FAQ’ on the cart page.

Code Explanation

Step 1: Hook Registration

Step 2: Creating the Custom Function

  • We define a custom PHP function named ‘ts_shipping_method_label’.
  • It takes two parameters: $label (the shipping method label) and $method (the shipping method object).

Step 3: Conditional Check

  • Inside the custom function, we use an if statement.
  • It checks if the shipping method’s full ID matches ‘flat_rate:25’ to determine if it should be modified.

Step 4: Label Modification and Return

  • If the shipping method matches, we add ‘ (<a href=””>Shipping FAQ</a>)’ to the label.
  • This creates a hyperlink labeled “Shipping FAQ” for that shipping method.
  • The modified or original label is then returned for display in the cart.


The code snippet provided uses WooCommerce cart page hooks and adds a hyperlink to the shipping method label that helps customers gain clarity about the chosen shipping method.
