// 1 Disable Country

// 2 Disable State
add_filter( 'woocommerce_shipping_calculator_enable_state', '__return_false' );

add_filter( 'gettext', 'modify_woocommerce_text_strings', 20, 3 );

function modify_woocommerce_text_strings( $translated_text, $text, $domain ) {
    switch ( $translated_text ) {
        case 'Change address' :
            $translated_text = __( 'Calculate Shipping', 'woocommerce' );
    return $translated_text;

Code Explanation

Let’s break it down step by step-

1. Disabling Country and State Selection

  • The first two lines of code use WordPress filters i.e. woocommerce_shipping_calculator_enable_country and woocommerce_shipping_calculator_enable_state to disable the selection of both Country and State in the WooCommerce shipping calculator. The shipping calculator is a feature that allows customers to estimate shipping costs based on their location.
  • These filters prevent users from selecting a Country and a State when using the shipping calculator.

2. Modifying Text Strings:

  • The next part of the code is a function that modifies specific text strings displayed on the WooCommerce interface. It uses the gettext filter to replace certain text with custom text.
    • The add_filter function is used to hook the modify_woocommerce_text_strings function to the gettext filter. This function will be called whenever a text string is being translated using the gettext function.
    • The modify_woocommerce_text_strings function takes three parameters: the original translated text, the original text, and the text domain (which is ‘woocommerce’ in this case).
    • Inside the function, there’s a switch statement that checks if the original text is ‘Change address’. If it is, the function returns the translated version ‘Calculate Shipping’ instead.
