Having trouble getting shipping zones to work as needed for oscmax V2.5
Did not have a previous version installed, this is a fresh install rather than an upgrade from a previous version.

Have edited zones.php and added a second zone; defined zones are US and CA. These show up fine and things like the handling fees are editable.

There are two shipping modules installed, UPS and USPS. Client wants UPS only for zone US (and would like to restrict it to the contiguous 48 if possible).

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the UPS module but the only zone the UPS module sees is Florida, which appears to be defined as a tax zone not a shipping zone.

Have tried everything I can think of. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!!!

You need to think "out of the box", as it ain't too obvious - use Tax Zones as your shipping zones too. Yes, you will have to manually add all your 48 zones in to "Rest of USA". ;) [One assumes that CA means California and not Canada.]
This is also a way to cope with Highlands & Islands, in the UK, Oz zones etc.

This worked! Thank you very much. The use of tax zones to control shipping was non-obvious. Can't see why it was set up that way but it does the trick.

I'm currently struggling with this for the UK. Not all areas affected are listed in the Zones, i.e. Northern Ireland, Scilly Isles. How do I go about creating these as zones as my carriers charge a lot more to deliver here?
