Displaying the calculated price on the cart page

Please note that many courier companies require a suburb (city) to perform their cost estimate. By default WooCommerce does not provide this option on the cart page which prevents this calculator from loading until the full address is provided in the checkout. It is possible to disable shipping calculation on the cart page via the WooCommerce Shipping settings. Alternatively, there are a number of workarounds including the snippet below which can be added to your theme’s functions.php file.

add_filter('woocommerce_shipping_calculator_enable_city','EnableCity');
function EnableCity() { return true;}
