You can add zones from many countries. This allows you to create a set for a specific area or region for shipping. E.g. India is divided into parts of the states. States are called zones here
I think you now understand about zones. If you are still confused, take a look through the screenshot
Geo Zone Name: Add your geo location name
Description: Give the short description of geo zone.
Click the + button to add a new geo zone.
County: Choose the zone country.
Zone: You can select the zone of the selected country
Now our country, zone and geo zone are ready, let's create particular zones of standard cost shipping
Before that, you need to add the product price of each one
Next, Setup the standard cost base shipping
Navigate to admin > Themes > Shipping > standard cost base shipping, and it'll display left side the list of geo-zones as default. You can create a geo zone wise shipping calculation based on standard cost (purchased value of cart).
Rates: This includes: Standard cart Total amount: Cost, Total amount: Cost etc. (so if you want to cart total amount 1000 for Rs.30, you have to enter at 1:30.00)
Status: Decide whether to enable this shipping for this geo zone.
Finally, check that zones rates and status are filled and pressing the 'Save' button in the upper right corner will save the information.
Congratulations !!! Now your store shipping calculation is enabled for your customer, which will help your customers make informed decisions before they make a purchase.
