Tips For Using Postal Codes

When adding destinations to rate calculators for destinations in the US and Canada, you can add postal code matching rules for the rate. The postal code field for the destination can include a single postal code, or a set of comma-separated rules.

A complete postal code can be used:

95131

An asterisks (*) can be used to match multiple postal codes.

95*

A hyphen (-) can be used to specify a range of numeric postal codes:

95000-95999

A list of postal codes and postal code rules can be separated by commas:

95131,95*,95000-95999
