Product Feeds XML Shipping Postal Code

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

 I need to set shipping only for the contiguous 48 states for my products. I am trying to filter down Hawaii and Alaska by postal code. However, the test feed gives me this warning:

 

The attribute does not contain valid geographic region: shipping

 

I am using the following XML:

 

<rss version="2.0" xmlns:g="http://base.google.com/ns/1.0">
  <channel>
    <item>
      <g:additional_image_link></g:additional_image_link>
      <g:additional_image_link></g:additional_image_link>
      <g:additional_image_link></g:additional_image_link>
      <g:additional_image_link></g:additional_image_link>
      <g:shipping>

      <g:gtin></g:gtin>
      <g:shipping_weight>4.00 lb</g:shipping_weight>
    </item>
  </channel>
</rss>

first, thank you for the {insert-code} snippet from the xml feed.


currently, only one, single, (zip-code region) range is allowed per item.

alternatives include -- adding oregon, washington, and any other out-of-range
states as separate state-abbreviated regions, defining a location-group-name
within the account and using that name as the region, using a shipping_label
attribute, or configuring (excluded) shipping in the account.

Is this something that can be accomplished through a text/tab delimited file?

for a tab-delimited feed, multiple shipping attribute definitions
could be added to multiple, separate, columns, with one value
in each row -- always verify the results under the products-tab
by clicking on the item's title.
