    Sushobhan,

    I set my shipping zones just as you described above
    T
    he following is the settings I’m using-
    1. Create 3 Zones from admin side (WooCommerce >> Settings >> Shipping)
    2 a. Zone 1 – Zone name – Local Shipping Zone, Zone regions – Canada or British Columbia
    b. Click on Limit to specific ZIP/postcodes and enter V9R*
    3. Zone 2 – Zone name – BC Shipping Zone 2, Zone regions – British Columbia, Canada
    4. Zone 3 – Zone name – Alberta Shipping Zone 3, Zone regions – Alberta, Canada

    AND it works too!!!

    BUT my question is….setting the postal code in ADMIN side won’t make sense for other vendors. how do we let vendors put their own postal code limits.

    That is what I have been trying to figure out.

    When I set the admin setting this way (see below)…Zone 2 or Zone 3 are never applied. It looks like basically when I try to restrict the “local zone” (First zone) from the VENDOR settings the shipping zones don’t work correctly.

    1. Create 3 Zones from admin side (WooCommerce >> Settings >> Shipping)
    2 a. Zone 1 – Zone name – Local Shipping Zone, Zone regions – Canada (Not British Columbia)
    Then the vendor would add the Limit to specific ZIP/postcodes and enter V9R (not * as that wild card does not works from the WCMF dashboard) from their shop dashboard settings
    3. Zone 2 – Zone name – BC Shipping Zone 2, Zone regions – British Columbia, Canada
    4. Zone 3 – Zone name – Alberta Shipping Zone 3, Zone regions – Alberta, Canada

    Your thoughts?

    Hi Sushobhan,

    Thanks for responding. I have tried with every way on the settings. I was screen shooting them all but must have attached the wrong one.

    Regarding the postal code setting in the ADMIN side would not work for a marketplace. I was expecting that each vendor can limit their postal codes from their vendor dashboard settings?

    Is that not the case?

    So what I would expect is:

    The following is the settings
    1. Create 3 Zones from admin side (WooCommerce >> Settings >> Shipping)
    2 a. Zone 1 – Zone name – Local Shipping Zone, Zone regions – Canada (Not British Columbia)
    Then the vendor would add the Limit to specific ZIP/postcodes and enter V9R (not * as that wild card does not works from the WCMF dashboard) from their shop dashboard settings
    3. Zone 2 – Zone name – BC Shipping Zone 2, Zone regions – British Columbia, Canada
    4. Zone 3 – Zone name – Alberta Shipping Zone 3, Zone regions – Alberta, Canada

    (and I would add a zone for each province)

    would the above work?

    for some reason the system won’t consider the other zones.

    Here is a possible bug.

    I turned on the WooCommerce -> System status -> Tools and checked “Shipping Debug Mode” Checkbox

    and the message being displayed No matter what address I enter keeps saying “Customer matched zone “Local Shipping Zone” EVEN when it SHOULD match Zone 2 or Zone 3.

    WC Lovers please help.

    I have still failed.

    I have tried once again with these shipping zones can can not get them to work for postal codes. This as been a frustrating many months trying to sort this out!

    “the only way I have found is to order this zones, first the one with postal codes, then the one with province and then the country”.

    I did this set up and still no luck. only the FIRST shipping table is being applied.

    WC Lovers please help and confirm if you can get these shipping setting to apply for Canada and postal codes.

    Please show me how to make the following work
    Shipping to any postal code V9R = $10 (Works as zone 1)
    Shipping to rest of British Columbia = $20 (won’t work as zone 2)
    Shipping to all of Alberta + $30.00 (Wont work as Zone 3)

    This was the marketplace plugin I had used previously and their flat rate shipping setup was pretty flexible for vendors to create their own zones/tables as many as they needed in each shop

    aemr45 thanks for adding your info. This is very informative and rather great sanity check as I have been pulling my hair out trying to get these shipping settings to work.
    …and then feeling defeated thinking “If I can figure this out how can I expect a vendor?”

    I did not think that the shipping requirements for my marketplace requirements were overly in that vendors need the ability to identify their own zones/shipping methods because every business is different. Some will sell right across Canada some will only sell within city limits etc.

    It sounds like an additional plugin may be needed to do this and more research is needed. The Plugin Hive is one that I will look into as well.

    Please let me know if you find something and I will certainly do the same.

    Again thanks so much for adding your information here.

    Hi Sushobhan,

    Thanks for your reply and explaining this further. I very much appreciate I will do some more testing but have some follow up questions.

    1. Regarding wild cards
    -if “V9R” works for all postal codes starting with V9R should “V” work of all postal codes starting with V and should “V9” work of all postal codes starting with V9

    -is there one for a “range” of codes? In the wooCommerce documents they indicate that V9R…V9V is supposed to work of all postal codes starting with V9R through to a range ending with postal codes starting with V9V (in other words all postal codes starting with V9R V9S V9T V9U V9V)

    2. Regarding setting up the tables as an ADMIN. See the screenshot below.
    I have created 10 zones with each region stated as “Canada” (which sounds like the problem as you described above). My intention was to allow the vendors flexibility in adding the “provinces” if they choose when they set up their shipping methods in each store.
    What is the best way to do that?
    Vendor #1 wants to have shipping rates for “just canada” (so they use Zone one as Canada” in their shop settings)
    Vendor #2 wants different rates for each province (so they use all 10 zones and have a different province listed for each in their shop settings)
    Vendor #3 want to have shipping costs for his city, rest of province, and rest of Canada (so they use 3 zones, one with postal codes, one with British Columbia, and one with Canada).

    Is there away to set this up in Admin panel to allow this flexibility between vendors and their shipping methods>?

    I don’t have the answer to your issue but wanted to let you know that when a vendor is signing up they don’t need a “paypal business account”. They can use a standard personal account if they want.

    awesome thanks!
    I have one other thread started regarding shipping setting that I have not been able to resolve after much testing.

    and
    Shipping zones

    Can you have a look here?

    I need to make a correction.
    Where I say “shipping method”…I mean “shipping zone” (not the shipping methods withing the zones…but the zones themselves)

    and finally as another test to rule out postal codes I also enabled USA states and tested that. Same result….and shipping method after the first one will NOT take effect. see attached screenshots for
    Alaska state (the first shipping method) – worked!
    and
    Georgia state (second in line shipping method) – did not work!

    In addition to this I have also tested with the “StoreFront” theme to rule out if my theme was the issue and I have confirmed it has not.

    Can you please please look into this?

    Can you confirm if the shipping methods created after the first one are taking effect with postal codes?

    I really need to get this resolved….as you know shipping is a very important piece to a eCommerce.

    Many thanks

    If you do this do you run the risk of a vendor uploading a whole bunch of files (maybe by accident) which then take up large amounts of server space?

    Good day. I wanted to follow up on this to see if you were able to find the glitch of why this is happening?

    1. The postal code formats
    2. only the first shipping zone works. any zone created after zone one are not beening applied.

    Thanks for this information and reply Alahdal.

    I also have a plugin call Woocommerce Follow-ups which works great for drip emails but it can only be triggered by a “purchase” or a “subscribe form” but since I have been using the WC Lovers plugin I can’t trigger because the membership does not show up as a “purchase” in woocommerce.

    Hopefully this integration is done very soon as these vendor support tools (like sending them automatic instructions) are important to their successs as well as the marketplace success.

    What does this have to do with the marketplace software? Or are you trying to use this post to advertise your business?

    ALSO I can not get the second shipping zone to work. Once the setting are set for the first zone the other zones created after it do not seem to have any effect.

    Please confirm that the cart is properly progressing to the next zone set up if the first zone settings do not match the customers address because for the life of me I can not get it to work.

    Also I have confirmed that the following wild cards are working and not working

    V ____NOT WORKING – supposed to work of all postal codes starting with V
    V9 ____NOT WORKING – supposed to work of all postal codes starting with V9
    V9R ____WORKING – works for all postal codes starting with V9R
    V9R,V9S,V9T ____WORKING – works for all postal codes starting with V9R,V9S,and V9T
    V9R 5S5 ____WORKING – works for specific postal code V9R 5S5
    V9R-V9V ____NOT WORKING – supposed to work of all postal codes starting with V9R through to a range ending with postal codes starting with V9V
    (in other words all postal codes starting with V9R V9S V9T V9U V9V)
    V9R…V9V ____NOT WORKING – supposed to work of all postal codes starting with V9R through to a range ending with postal codes starting with V9V
    (in other words all postal codes starting with V9R V9S V9T V9U V9V)

    Can you please look at this and confirm what is going on. This has been an issue since Feb 2019 (When I first purchased your plugins) and I have not be able to go live because I can never get the shipping settings to work properly for Canadian postal codes.

    This would be an interesting feature but would require the vendor the ability to toggle the visibility on or off of the archived listings.

    If you simply just hide the archived listings then then why not delete them for the start? Or are you wanting to keep them in the “system” for historical reporting purposes?

    Have you checked your plugins to make sure they are activated? That might be why you don’t see “marketplace”
