Extra Charges

These are the charges you pay apart from paying for the plugin. In case of Woocommerce Shipping Method, you need to buy WooCommerce Stamps.com API to print postage and automate shipment tracking and pay for it online. Without Stamps.com API WooCommerce Shipping Method is as good as our open source USPS Shipping Method Plugin.
