CloudCart allows the grouping of countries into Geo Zones (regions) regardless of their geographic location. This helps you to easily set up discounts, taxes, special offers and shipping methods according, in accordance with your marketing strategy.

Creating Geo Zones

When creating your store, you do not have any geographic areas yet. Through these geographic areas, you can define cities or countries where your online store will operate. By default, if you have not added any geographic area, it is possible in your online store to place an order worldwide.

If you want to limit your store supplies and can only be ordered to specially defined countries or even cities, CloudCart allows you to add geographic areas.

For example, you want to have a special shipping method to be used only for customers who order in London, England. Then you can add a geo zone named England and define that only the city of London enters this area. Once you have created a geo zone, you need to set in the delivery method that it works for this geo zone. This will limit all customers outside of London.



To create a geo zone, go to the Settings > Geographic Zones section and click the Add New Geo Zone button in the upper right corner of the page.

In the window that pops up, enter the name of the area (it is internal only. It can be a name of a country, region or city, depending on the area you create) and click Add geographical area to select what type of limit will you set:



Includes - Applies to all districts and cities in a country - after this selection it is necessary to write in the opposite blank field the name of the country that will be included in the geo-zone

Includes only - Only applies to an area - after this selection it is necessary to enter in the opposite blank field the name of the area to be included in the area

Includes all locations except - Applies to everyone else, but not to an area - after this selection it is necessary to enter in the opposite blank field the name of the area that will not be included in the geo-zone

Includes all locations except country - Applies to everyone else, but not to a country - after this choice it is necessary to enter in the opposite blank field the name of the country that will not be included in the area

Includes only for city - Only applies to a city - after this choice it is necessary to write in the opposite blank field the name of the city that you want to be included in the geo zone

Includes all cities or stats except city - Applies to everyone else, but not to the city - after this choice it is necessary to write in the opposite blank field the name of the city that will not be included in the geo-zone

You can create a geographical area with more than one criteria. Remember to apply the specific area you want in the specific shipping method you want to run.

In the Settings > Geographic Zones section, all created zones will remain, which you can adjust at any time by clicking on their name or by deleting it in the checkbox and selecting the Delete option from the drop-down menu in the Tools field.

Once you've added a new geographical area, you can create taxes and fees here!
