Zip Code data's Role in operation
I'm setting up an international classifieds. People will be buying and selling from all over the world. I checked out the Zip Code feature and it was finding the distance to the seller (it showed 8,000 miles to my house... from where??? I was both buyer and seller in my test).
I don't want to use the Zip code for this purpose. I've seen how to remove it from the uploadproduct (funny name for the classified ads to be called "product" -- I guess this is left over from reviewpost, eh?) templates.
I've also seen your response to the search problem if I remove it.
BUT... if I removed zip codes from the entire program is there somewhere else that it's used that I'll be sorry it's gone? Like in a shipping cost estimating routine or any where else?
