phpMyAdmin UK country_id problem

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Installed BS edge, (testing) : mzmt 2.1a ;  Compatability_2.3.4_edge v1.0 ; UK_Quick_localisation_1.2. 

I have been having issues with the following error message :

 "Shipping is currently not available for the selected shipping address. Please select or create a new shipping address to use with your purchase".

This error seems to be quite common, I have read through many answers, but none of them seem to have a country_id problem.

Initially I thought that it was due to an address format problem, however this has now been sorted but I still have the problem.

I have found, under phpMyAdmin/address_book, the entry_country_id for my UK store is 222, but for the newly created test UK account the entry_country_id is 242, despite selecting UK from the drop down menu, (despite the store being setup for the UK only).

Where does the create account find the country_id, is it simply from entering the GB,GBR codes? 

Where has the code 242 come from? 

How can I change these codes? Is it through phpMyAdmin, (version 5.5.54)? Which code is correct? I have seen both in different places.

I think this will be enough questions for starters!!!

222 is the correct country code for the United Kingdom. I do not see 242 as a valid country code in my database(s).

It looks like you will have to do a search through the code where you create a customer's account to see where the country code in created and/or defined.

Thank you Malcolm

I have gone through many files by comparing them with the master copy, with no success.

I have changed the country code for the test customers to 222, but the shipping error is still present.

I will continue comparing files, if I find anything I will post it.

Hi, those codes could be found more likely in the DB entries than inside files, another question have you free shipping e.g. for orders over a certain amount inside your mzmt table?

Best regards

The number means nothing of importance.  It just so happens that in a standard installation of osc, the UK comes 222nd in an alphabetical list of countries... that is a red herring that you should stop thinking about.

Allow Orders Not Matching Defined Shipping Zones <-- in admin, set this to "true" to help diagnose the "currently not available for the selected shipping address. Please select or create a new shipping address to use with your purchase" problem.

OK thank you, I will set this tomorrow and get back to you.

Sorry Burt, I forgot to mention, thank you for the clarification over the code 222, (all that stress and confusion over nothing!)
