Delivery Zones (Shipping Zones) allows to specify which zip codes will receive your product. Delivery zones can be linked to inventory locations and product categories, so a specific warehouse can serve a zone with specific categories. So a designated warehouse serves the zone with in the categories mapped.
A delivery zone is a collection of zip codes and categories (groups of products). Allows customers to place orders from a specific geographic region within the delivery zone. Allows adding several zip codes in the same delivery zone.
Each delivery zone has a primary warehouse, and each zip code has its own warehouse. When the customer enters their zip code, a list of items relevant to that zip code is displayed, allowing them to know which products are available in that region.
