Subzones are commonly used for setting different or additional rates for local-delivery areas and charging higher rates or restricting shipments to distant rural areas within a state or province.
Subzones are defined by a comma separated list of postal codes.
Subzones work with any country that uses a postal code system of any format, whether it’s 100-001, 12309, K2P 1L4, G4 0QZ, etc.
Subzones function like a regular zone within the app. The subzone will be available as a zone within each product group.
It’s called a subzone because it must belong within a normal zone synced from the Shopify shipping settings.
Add a Subzone
Go to the Sync tab.
Locate the Shipping Zones section
Click Add Subzone next the relevant zone
Give the subzone a label
Enter a list of comma separated postal codes. You can list full postal codes, or use wildcards. Example: 12345,1234*,123**,12***,1****. Do not input: 1*
Click Add Subzone
After you’ve added a subzone, it will appear within each product group, under the parent subzone.
The rates that are configured in the parent zone for each group will be cloned automatically into the subzone.
You can then add and remove rates from the subzones within each product group.
