Country Based Shipping:
Contribution to OScommerce providing a method for store owners to allow shipping
for a product only to certain countries (due to export regulations or whatever
other reason). You can restrict shipping to some countries by defining the Tax Zones
and then with the product administration tool restrict shipping to countries which
belong to a certain Tax Zone.
The module only works with COUNTRIES. So if you defined FLORIDA-USA as a tax zone (as the
default instalation does) and you define to ship a product only to FLORIDA tax zone,
the shipping will be allowed in ENTIRE U.S.A. but not in the other countries.
So when a customer from another country than USA proceed to checkout (s)he will see a
"Amazon" kind of message:
MG200MMS - Matrox G200 MMS
We're sorry. This item can't be shipped to your selected destination.
You may either change the shipping address or remove the item from your shopping cart.
Of course you should have a Shipping Policy posted on your website stating that some products
(Video Cards in this example) cannot be shipped but to US. Otherwise some customers from
other countries might get angry.
Hopefully, this explanation made any sense.:)
