GJC VM2.0 Postcodes Plugin general info

There is no reason why any countries Postcode areas cannot be used with this plugin.
This is a standard Joomla/Virtuemart2.0 plugin.

The advantage of this plugin is you can set your own postage areas (Postcode areas), costs, limits (weight, price, number of articles etc) all on one Virtuemart Shipping method.

The plugin uses a simple comma separated list pasted in the text area to configure the method.
The format is Name,Postcode*Postcode*Postcode,BasePrice,PriceMultiplier,Trigger,PriceFree
Each zone is on a new line.

A Canadian example is shown below.
If you find it isn't exactly as you need we can adapt the code to your needs. 

Any Postcode not found will default to the set default values.
Minor debugging can be switched on so you can see what is happening.
