Do not allow PO BOX shipping in WooCommerce

Add this code to your child theme’s functions.php file or via a plugin that allows custom functions to be added, such as the Dessky Snippets plugin. Please don’t add custom code directly to your parent theme’s functions.php file as this will be overwritten completely when you update the theme.

/**
 * Prevent PO box shipping
 */
add_action('woocommerce_after_checkout_validation', 'deny_pobox_postcode');

function deny_pobox_postcode( $posted ) {
  global $woocommerce;

  $address  = ( isset( $posted['shipping_address_1'] ) ) ? $posted['shipping_address_1'] : $posted['billing_address_1'];
  $postcode = ( isset( $posted['shipping_postcode'] ) ) ? $posted['shipping_postcode'] : $posted['billing_postcode'];

  $replace  = array(" ", ".", ",");
  $address  = strtolower( str_replace( $replace, '', $address ) );
  $postcode = strtolower( str_replace( $replace, '', $postcode ) );

  if ( strstr( $address, 'pobox' ) || strstr( $postcode, 'pobox' ) ) {
    wc_add_notice( sprintf( __( "Sorry, we cannot ship to PO BOX addresses.") ) ,'error' );
  }
