Some countries do not support zip codes. If you ship internationally, this can make orders from those customers difficult or just wrong. Magento provides a mechanism to allow you to set what countries do not require a zip code. Unfortunately, this is easy to configure, but not as easy to figure out which countries fit in this category.

In an attempt to prepare that information, here is a list of countries that do not currently support zipcodes.

No Zip Countries

  • Afghanistan
  • Angola
  • Ghana
  • Belize
  • Benin
  • Hong Kong SAR China
  • Macau SAR China
  • Ireland

This list was compiled with information gathered from Wikipedia. If there are additional countries without a Zipcode, please add them to this list.
