I'm in the process of setting up an e-commerce site using Exp:resso Store version 1.6.3. My client wants to be able to add surcharges to particular UK postcode areas based on the fact that they are hard to reach regions.
I assumed this would be easy using the Standard Shipping Plugin, by adding different rules for the first part of each postcode.
For example, if we wanted to surcharge all customers with postcodes starting 'AB', I would simply add a rule to match postcode 'AB' and apply a charge to that. I'm not sure how to match this though as if I then complete a test order to the checkout confirmation page with postcode 'AB34 3DP', this rule is ignored.
In addition, I would not want to apply this rule if the customer postcode was, for example 'TN4 3AB'. Is there a method to add wildcards to the postcode shipping rules? I could not find any information in the Exp:resso Store docs.
