We are extremely happy to share with you the release of Jigoshop 1.17.8!
United Kingdom divided by State/Province
Among the largest improvements within the 1.17.8 release is the addition of State/Province selection for the United Kingdom.
Before, Jigoshop treated the entire United Kingdom as one place without factoring in that there are many great places that make up the UK. This brings us to a potential conundrum; especially for those using advanced shipping rules, like those configurable in our Premium Shipping extension.
You see, there are a lot of businesses that use Jigoshop in the United Kingdom to sell physical goods. These companies need to ship product and here’s the problem… Can you guess it?
Exactly! The prices for shipping can vary greatly based on what part of the United Kingdom you’re shipping to. The shipping cost for a package going to London might be drastically cheaper than one going to Northern Ireland, for example.
Shops shipping in the United States never really had such a problem since Jigoshop has always divided all 50 states. Now, shop owners using Jigoshop in the United Kingdom have the same luxury.
With this division of the United Kingdom you now have the ability to take greater control of shipping rules and methods.
There are several other improvements found within the Jigoshop 1.17.8 release. Please take a look at the changelog below.
