Once again thanks, most of the work was done on behalf of a client as we couldn't find anything out there to do it but I do enjoy passing something back to the community to help pay back for all the free software and help I've had during my career. If my boss sees your post, however, he might decide to start charging for it
I've just finished lunch and I've done a quick and dirty version for using country codes, however I can't test it as I deleted all countries outside of the UK on my local test machine since our client only ships to UK
Most of the help text still refers to postcodes but of course it's now contry codes
Can you have a play and tell me if it works or not - also I'm not sure whether to use the 2 or 3 letter country code (currently it looks at the 2 letter code) - maybe it should be an option in the module for which one it uses
You'll find it as "Country code zones" next to "UK postcode zones" in the shipping methods list.
Let me know and I'll see if I can finish it tomorrow lunchtime
