    how can I bulk select all cities for rates

    1. Condless Avatar

      Hi Nizlan,
      If you need all the cities you can choose the country itself in the shipping zone, otherwise you can use the Bulk Select tool (via the plugin settings) which allow you to bulk insert by states or cities.

    Hello! this plugin seems great, but I’m having serious issues at the checkout.
    Price gets updated fine at the cart with the shipping calculator as you can see in this image:

    When I get to the checkout my two delivery zones are being displayed fine:
    but they wont update the price:

    Any idea of what’s going on?
    I would greatly appreciate any hint you can give me!

    Guatemala is not listed in the countries available to use the plugin. We have 22 states here, and would love to add the cities somehow to the plugin. Is this possible?

      Hi Carlos,
      Guatamala is not yet supported, you can explore other countries’ cities list in the plugin folder /i18n/cities.

      Hey! Thank you for your reply!

      Is there a way in which I can help to make Guatemala available in the plugin? I am willing to invest some time for it.

    I have created a document for Guatemala’s cities, updated with all cities available in the country.

    What is the best way to send it to you? In case you want to add it to the plugin.

      You can use the Bulk Select tool (via the plugin’s settings), enter the state name/code and the desired shipping zone, and all the cities of that state will be inserted automatically.

    Realmente me sirvió muchísimo, estuve buscando mucho como hacer esto para Colombia, y con este plugin fue muy fácil una vez comprendí su funcionamiento, simplemente increíble y adaptable al 100%, seguro dejare 5 estrellas ahora mismo al plugin del repositorio

    Best regards, I am happy with the plugin, it is a great job.
    I have a question: I need to establish a single shipping rate for all the districts of a city, is it necessary for me to establish a rate, district by district of the city? Is it possible to establish a single price rate for an entire city?

    1. Condless Avatar

      Hi Luis,
      You can explore the full citis list, and use the ‘Bulk select tool’ (via the plugin’s settings) to insert multiple cities at once.
