Address Zones are used in Ultra Commerce as a means of applying special taxation or shipping calculations on a per-region basis. Zones can be as small as a single zip code or as large as a conglomerate of nations.

You will now see the Address Zones listing page.

Add a Location to a Zone
To add a location to the zone:

The default zoning parameters are for United States locations. There are other countries available in the drop-down and other nations can be added if necessary in the Countries section of Ultra Commerce. However, Ultra Commerce does not currently adjust other fields to accommodate non-US territorial demarcations (in other words, you will still see City, State, and Postal Code regardless of whether the selected nation has states or postal codes) These fields can be customized by editing the country (see Countries portion of the guide for more information). Fields other than Country are optional for address zones, and should be used for narrowing down the scope of the zone, first by State, then by City, and finally by Postal Code.
