So now it’s time to add a new rule. Complete these dropdowns this way:
1️⃣ In the first one, Shipping Zone, you can choose the shipping zone that includes your shipping method. Only shipping methods from that shipping zone will be displayed in the second field. In my case, it’s the USA.
2️⃣ In the second field, Shipping Method, choose your shipping methods. If you are using our Flexible Shipping plugin, you’ll see shipping methods with the “Flexible Shipping:” prefix.Sometimes it can take a while to load all the shipping methods.
