UK Counties XML list for TB

Recommended Posts

I noticed that the TB localization for UK doesn't include any of the UK counties which might be useful to some people. Below is a list of counties for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Island that you can add to the gb.xml file on your server and then import into TB so you can offer it as a drop down list on your checkout for UK customers. I don't think it matters where in the xml file you add it, i just put it at the end and it seems to import fine. To import the counties you go to Localization > Localization and then pick United Kingdom (local) and make sure you set download pack data to No, So that it updates from your server and not from the TB site.

That's great. There isn't a Cumberland and Westmorland anymore though. They merged with a bit of Lancashire to form Cumbria years back.

Is the county actually needed? There is no place in thirty bees for counties, since they are a sub division of states, I can see this only causing problems.

@lesley said in UK Counties XML list for TB:

Right, there in lies the problem in using this in the states field.

This is 1 of the things that is on my to do list , finding State and changing it to Counties or adding State / County

One of the issues in the UK is not necessarily the counties, but postcodes. Most couriers have different delivery charges based on different postcodes. Probably not much of an issue for large value orders, but for small orders it is. A simple next day delivery for differnet postcodes can vary by as much as three times. So we need zones by postcode. Luckliy we have a module that I can now report works fine in 30bees Shipping Costs Based On Zipcodes Pro v3.0.0 - by ProQuality

https://github.com/thirtybees/thirtybees/issues/839 covers this too and I wrote something there, which agrees by saying that people in the UK do not need counties or states.

"might be useful to some people" means private couriers and  ecommerce delivery form-writers, I suppose, because the Post Office/ Royal Mail has a fixed price for all of the UK including the parts other beers cannot reach like the highlands of Scotland and Northern Ireland. Private couriers ask for a postcode before quoting, and might be slower or more expensive for postcodes in those areas. Anyone can check for examples on Parcel2go.co.uk that covers most couriers or MyHermes.co.uk or Collectplus.co.uk . If you check those you'll see just about every private courier and none wants to know a county or state.

The UK and republic of ireland are unusual in having no fixed address format. The name and first line are important; the last line is important. The middle lines are often verbose and whimsical. Even the UK post office / royal mail has a concept of a "post town" which is often your nearest sorting office in a small town but is the town name in the largest towns.

The Republic of Ireland is doubly-unusual in doing without postcodes until a year or two ago. Their postcodes look different to the UK ones, but have the same effect of choosing a part of a postal delivery round - maybe a dozen addresses or one larger postal user - rather than a larger number.
