Support » Plugin: Shipping Zones by Drawing for WooCommerce » Address validation problem

  • Hi

    I was trying your plugin. It works great, but there is an issue with google detection depending on the address, with special characters.

    For example, i was trying with a street called “Jose Hernandez” in spanish but Google wasn’t detecting it, so the shipping methods were not showing.

    I had to add the accent marks like this: “José Hernández” and after that, it worked.
    It seems you should type it exactly as appears on Google.

    Is it possible to not take the accent marks (and/or special characters) in consideration?

    Thanks!

    Hello, google geocoding should be taking care of that. But maybe with special characters google have moore exact information, it could also depend of other address input you are sending. If you give me ful adress i can check what is happening.

    Thanks for answering.

    I was receiving this message till yesterday.. “GEOCODING []” But I tried again today, and the response was ok. So I don’t understand what happened. It is like random.
    It used to work only when i added the accent marks. Ok, let’s say that is fixed.

    I have another question..

    I realize that your plugin is not using the Zip code and the State I set in the checkout fields. Is that the way Google works? I could made up a zip code and it will accept the address anyway.

    I have this as store address:
    Jose Hernandez 2080, Buenos Aires, Argentina, ZIP 1426

    And 2 test zones: Zone 1 and Zone 2.
    Address inside Zone 1: Ohiggins 1700, Buenos Aires, Argentina, ZIP 1426
    Address inside Zone 2: Zabala 2100, Buenos Aires, Argentina, ZIP 1426

    Just after typing the street name and number, the correct zone appears.

    But, right after that, I can select any State and an non existent zip code ex: 999999 and it gives no error.

    Is there a way to use those fields as validators too?

    Thanks!
