Hi there,

I’m a wordpress developer, working actually on a multiple pickup and shipping location e-shop. I have some questions about this awesome Cities Shipping Zone for WooCommerce :

1. I have removed unnecessary cities in the French city list. In order to reduce load time.
2. On the checkout and summary page our customers can only choose cities from the drop-down list, but we also have some customers from outside the zone come to us to pick up the order.
3. So could you add for example « 0 – other cities » on the top of the drop-down list and when the customer choose this option the dropdown transform to text input for customers to enter the city name manually.

I think this option could be done with a little more conditional logic (if…else), and lots of users need to this in order to make invoice with the right city name of users.

Thank you for the reply and help.
