How to configure the Prestashop Zipcode Validator module
After the installation, you need to configure the module. Admin can choose to have the product availability globally by enabling the “Default zipcode availability” without adding each & every zip code manually.
In this way, you can successfully configure the module.
Once the module configuration and the installation is complete, a new tab adds to the dashboard.
The two options respectively “Global Zipcode” & “Product Zipcode” are available under zipcode validator tab. The zipcodes added through global zipcode will apply to all the products.
Add new global zipcodes from here :
If the admin wants to add a CSV file for the zip code then first column name would be for ‘zipcode’ in which the zipcode would be written. The second column would be ‘active’, showing whether the product is available on the zipcode or not. You can use only two values for the active column, ie. 0 and 1.
0 denotes that the zipcode is not active
1 denotes that the zipcode is active
