We decided not to go down this route. We spoke to another company we know who looked into using a few different apps for shipping zones and their web developers said they weren't a good solution and there could still be issues. the apps are priced over €50 per month so they didn't seem worth it for us. Shopify need to change the zones on the platform, especially now with Brexit affecting shipping rates
I've discovered the same problem with shipping for Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.
and as a few people have said you shouldn't have to pay extra for an app for something so basic.
Same here Shopify, really happy with your system however this is a small flaw, would save negative comments/PR if you were to fix this.
Currently have an order from N.Ireland which has paid our £3.60 UK shipping rate but will cost us £25+ to send.
If I ask the customer for additional money they become an unhappy customer or ask to cancel the order and if I send then I make minimal profit.
Would be really helpful if you could put in some feaure for Northern Ireland or some way of allowing us to customise.
Did anyone get a firm response from Shopify? This is going to become a major problem once Brexit kicks in Jan 1st.
In my situation, I want to block out shipping to England, Scotland and Wales.
In the reverse, my business partner, who's is based in England, wants to remove Northern Ireland from his options..
