I am working on a project for a coffee company. They are selling coffee from USA, Canada and Hong Kong. I need to set 3 different "shipping from" locations. How do I do this?
I am going to take a guess at my own question and assume that I will need 3 separate E-junkie accounts for each shipping location (USA, Canada, Hong Kong). Now the question is how do I setup E-junkie to calculate shipping from Calgary, Alberta Canada to another city in Canada? Or from Hong Kong to another city/province in China?
I went ahead and created another account for Canada and tried setting the "Shipping Origin" Zip Code, but the input box will only accept numbers and the Canadian zip code is T1Y 7K7.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Live shipping rate lookups are only available for US merchants using the US Postal Service, and that postage lookup is the only purpose of the "Shipping Origin" zipcode.
Otherwise, you will only need to select your own country as the Shipping Origin, which determines whether we apply your custom Domestic or International rate to the shipping calculation for a given order, and devise a custom shipping calculation method such as the examples given here:
You may also find it helpful to know the basic formula we follow when calculating shipping charges:
(rate X (total product weights + container weights)) + (container cost) + (handling cost)
Note that you can "game" the formula by applying non-literal figures for various settings, so the formula adds up the way you want.
