Set up location groups (AU and US only)

When setting up shipping options by postal code, you can use location groups to create custom areas and reuse these areas for both shipping cost and transit time across multiple shipping services.

Create a new location group

Then enter postal code ranges, with one range per line. Submit any of the following styles:

  1. On the Shipping settings page, click Location groups.
  2. Click the plus button to create a new location group.
  3. Add a Name that you can use to distinguish it later.
  4. Select the Country that this group will apply to.
  5. A postal code (e.g., 94043)
  6. A range of postal codes (e.g., 94002-95460)
  7. A range of postal codes using a prefix with a wildcard ( * ) (e.g., 94*)
  8. A range of postal codes using 2 prefixes with wildcards ( * ), using the same number of digits for both prefixes Use. (e.g., 94*-95*)
  9. Click Add postal codes to add them to the location group.
  10. To remove a postal code, click the X next it or the trash icon trash can to remove them all.
  11. Click Save to finish creating the group. Now you can use the group when using the Destination by postal code dimension.

Once you’ve created a location group, you’ll see a table listing all the groups, how many locations (postal code ranges) they contain, and how many shipping services they’re used in.

Edit a location group

  1. Click its Name.
  2. To change the Name, enter it into the field.
  3. To add new postal codes, add them just like you did when you created the group, with one range per line.
  4. To remove a postal code, click the X next it or the trash icon trash can to remove them all.
  5. Click Save to finish editing the group.

Remove a location group

  1. Before you can remove a location group from this tab, remove it from any shipping services, so the group should show as used in 0 shipping services. As long as it’s used in any shipping services, you won’t be able to remove it.
  2. Next, click the box next to the group, and then click Remove.
