This plugin has improved a lot over the last few months. It syncs orders like other plugins and offers a great UX on the front end. [disclaimer: I was provided some compensation to write this review, but it did not influence my experience, nor did they a have any say on this review.]

New Feature: Shipping Rates by Zone

Set shipping rates by zone: For each shipping zone, you can set different shipping rates based on the shipping method, weight, price, or a combination of these factors.
Override default rates: You can override the default shipping rates for certain shipping zones.
To get started with this feature, simply go to the Shipping Zones tab in your WooCommerce settings, and add or edit a shipping zone. You can then select the shipping methods you want to offer, and set the rates and conditions for each method.
