The code snippet facilitates you to hide the shipping methods. You can hide the shipping methods in a cart/checkout page if the cart does not have the product with the specific shipping class.

Add the following code to your functions.php or anywhere relevant.

add_filter(‘woocommerce_package_rates’, ‘hide_shipping_method_when_shipping_class_product_is_not_in_cart’, 10, 2);
function hide_shipping_method_when_shipping_class_product_is_not_in_cart($available_shipping_methods, $package)
// Shipping class IDs that need the method removed
$shipping_class_ids = array(
$shipping_services_to_hide = array(
$shipping_class_exists = false;
foreach(WC()->cart->cart_contents as $key => $values) {
if (in_array($values[‘data’]->get_shipping_class_id() , $shipping_class_ids)) {
$shipping_class_exists = true;
if (!$shipping_class_exists) {
foreach($shipping_services_to_hide as & $value) {
return $available_shipping_methods;

In the above code:

$available_shipping_methods contains all the available shipping methods for the carrier.

– $shipping_class_ids contains the IDs of the shipping class for which you need to hide the shipping services.

– $shipping_services_to_hide contains the list of shipping services which need to be hidden.

If $shipping_class_ids matches with the shipping class ID of the cart product, then $shipping_class_exists becomes true. If $shipping_class_exists is not true, then value of $available_shipping_methods is unset for all the listed shipping services. The Function returns $available_shipping_methods which hides the listed services on cart/checkout page.
