Setting up a location

Modified on: Sat, Apr 5, 2014 at 10:09 PM


A location is a combination of parameters to represent a  geographical area. Locations are used to calculate shipping rates and  tax charges.


To set up a location:
  1. In the administration panel, go to Administration > Shipping & Taxes > Locations.
  2. Click the + button on the left.
  3. Enter the desired name for your new location in the Name input field (for example, you wish to define the location zone USA-Maryland.)
  4. Select United States in the Countries section on the right side and click the <- button to move it to the left box.
  5. Select United States: Maryland in the States section on the right side and click the <- button to move it to the left box.
  6. Leave other fields blank on the left.
  7. Click the Save button to save the changes.
    NOTE: If geographic areas (states or countries) of location zones intersect  each other, then the one with more precise location conditions will be  used for a customer on checkout. For example, if both of the following  locations include the customer's address: USA + Maryland, USA + All  states - the first one will be used.
