    First of all I am not afraid of HTML :) I use it on my shopping cart, but that's a different problem.

    I have some hard good products that I sell ONLY in the U.S. For those items I need to use the shipping zones. I select U.S. only for my countries. That way I don't need to deal with international orders.

    I also have downloadable products that I can sell world wide. For those I usually use PayPal straight up. Until today I have had no problem. Seems a zip file I sold wouldn't open. I then tried to fix the problem and did not find my old button in PayPal.

    So I thought wouldn't it be nice if I could set up another shipping zone just for downloadable products that I could sell worldwide. The downloadable products would not have shipping or tax added and be available world wide.

    So what I need to do is have some stuff available in the U.S. only and other stuff available world wide.

    Okay I've been looking for a tutorial on how to do this. Any clues, anyone?

    Thanks in advance.

    Since your downloadable products have no shipping why do they need a shipping zone setup?

    Debbie thanks for asking. No the downloadable products don't need a shipping zone, but the hard goods do. I can only sell the hard goods in the U.S. but I can sell the downloadable products world wide. I don't want to restrict my whole shopping cart to just the U.S. Just the hard goods. I was hoping I could set up a shipping zone that was U.S. ONLY. Is that doable? Or do I need a new cart to do that?

    Any ideas?
