    Make sure on the Zone that you defined the details correctly ...

    What Version of Zen Cart?

    Clean Install or an Upgrade?

    How did you install? How did you upgrade?

    Free Shipping freeshipper is really not designed for Zones ... Zones is built in for consistance for developers but not really used by the average user ...

    On the other modules, Zones will filter who can see the Shipping module based on their address ...

    What shipping modules do you have installed?

    Linda,

    This was an excellent step-by-step process...it seemed confusing to me until I read this - thanks!

    One quick question, if I only wanted US and Canada to show up in the dropdown, do I have to manually delete all the other countries in order to accomplish this?

    What drop down? For the create account? Shipping? Billing? They are all the same ...

    So if you are just trying to limit something for Shipping, use the Zones ... this way Grandma in the UK can buy Tiny Tim that shinny new crutch and send it to him in the US ...

    You can always add to the Create Account that you only ship to a limited area ...
