Add Zones to Shipping Zone Rates

Recommended Posts

This is a simple question.  I need to add zones to the shipping zone rates.  I knew how to do this several years ago when I first set up my store, but I just upgraded to osC 2.4.3.1 CE and lost the table.  I believe this is because I overwrote the configuration table.  I have the default Zone 1.  I need at least 5 zones.  Thank you, Jim

You need to install the Zone rate module, just ligin to admin and go to modules/shipping and install Zone rates. Then just set them up as before.

To add new zones just go to admin/ localization/taxes and open zones and at bottom right is the add zones button.

I looked at this but was concerned about whether it was compatible with osC 2.4.3.1 CE.  I believe this is what I was using before upgrading osC.  Can you tell me if it is or how to adapt it to this release if not?  Thanks

It is a module already included in osC 2.3.4.1 CE. You just need to "turn it on" by following the instruction @JcMagpie laid out.

OK.  I understand.  However, when I try to do this, I don't know how to add a zone or row to the zone rate table.  How do I get zone 2, zone 3, and additional rows to show up?

Also, the Shipping Zone Rates are based on countries, not zones.  I don't believe they are related to the Zones table in Locations/Taxes.

@jimormsbee

Are you looking to set up TAX zones, or SHIPPING zones?

@jimormsbee

How many shipping zones do you want?

(in particular, post #4)

Also this one ...

 

Basically, do a search here in the Forum for 'Shipping Zones'.

At least 3 and probably 4 or 5.  Right now I limit my sales to US, Canada, and Australia/New Zealand.  My concern is that I just got my store running well in v 2.3.4.1 CE.

I did figure out how to add zones by searching for 'Shipping Zones' in the forum.  Burt replied to this problem at least twice in the past.  On 6/30/2012 he referred to the actual file zones.php and said to change the number of zones there.  I found the file in /catalog/includes/modules/shipping/zones.php and changed setting to '5' per his instructions and the extensive comments in the file.  This worked perfectly.

Thanks much, Jim
