    Default Shipping cost to different states within a country

    Hello, I am new to the ZentCart, I am using PHP Version 5.3.5. I already included some of my products and I was working on the shipping module. I notice there are 3 zones. I am going to use the zentcart in a country where there are 29 states. I was able to break them in 3 zones, to make things easier. For example. I set up the country US and includen on that country 29 zones. I dividen those 29 zones in the eastern part which I consider zone 1, then the central part to be zone 2 and the western part to be zone 3. I input all the cost for those 3 different zones by weight. And now when I want to do an estimate shipping cost to zone 3. It will always use zone 1. For example on the zone 1 I put on the field: "US, FL, MI,....." and on my third zone I put in: "US, CA, TX,..." it seems that it will take always the first zone.

    Could someone please help.

    Regards,

    From your post you seem to have US in each??

    You need to create the 3 zones such as eastern, central, west wit only the states in those zonesIn the ship module you specifiy the zone(s)

    Default Re: Shipping cost to different states within a country

    Thank you Kobra for responding to my post. Here is the actual thing. Lets say that I customer from California wants to purchase something from me. On his account he has a California address and on my zonning California is on Zone 3. So when the shipping estimate calcualtes the cost, it will always go to zone 1 because all my states belown to the US Contry. If I don't include US on my zones, the shipping estimator will say that shipping is not available to that zone. Plus on the information that my customer fills out, I would preffer not to ask him if he is in the west, east or central part of the country, only the country he is in.

    I do not know if this could be possible. Please advice.

    That is what you need to change and create custom zones that have a selection of states
    States in this case are similar to countrys in the tutorial
