GJC VM2.0 Postcodes Plugin for UK

This plugin is the only VM 2.0 shipping extension that can handle UK Alpha-numeric postcodes and has been tested on all UK Postcodes.
Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_postcode_areas_in_the_United_Kingdom

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.

On this test site I have configured 5 zones plus a general default config (for all Postcodes not found)

Try Inverness codes like IV43 8QR or London like W2 RTZ5(default zone)

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