    Is it possible to add military options to the shipping state dropdown? (AE, AP, AA)
    How you go about implementing military addresses and calculating the shipping via the already installed ups extension?

    Hi Mark,

    That's a really great question. I did a little bit of research into this, and it looks like our current UPS module doesn't actually have any native support for for military addresses.

    This isn't a specific area I am an expert in, but if I understand correctly - it's simply a matter of setting the proper ZIP code, having "AE/AA/AP" available as regions and APO/FPO/DPO as "cities".

    After doing a bit more research, it does appear that USPS is the only method possible for shipping to military addresses --> https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20061105013404AAPYrjn

    That said, if you're able to switch to USPS and add those AA/AE/AP regions to the database (which I believe is possible via this plugin) - I think you might be in business.

    Finally, I've added this as an issue to our GitHub tracker. I would love to see better support for this in our core platform. Thanks so much for the question!
