Troubleshoot – Invalid Country Code Error using FedEx Shipping Plugin

In this article, we will guide you how to troubleshoot the invalid country code error when using the WooCommerce FedEx Shipping Plugin with Print Label.

The installation process of the WooCommerce FedEx Shipping plugin into your WooCommerce is quite simple. However, there are users who tend to make some small mistakes that might throw some errors. These errors may seem to be unsettling for the users who just bought our plugin.

One of the most common mistakes that our users do is that they enter the country code incorrectly. This usually happens while setting up the shipping address and is quite common. Let us see one of our customers approaching us with the same issue.

Taylor: I am trying to get the FedEx shipping rates to show up for products and it’s not showing up. I tried to enable them in “Shipping Zones”. I also cannot get it to show up on the checkout page. It’s saying there’s No Shipping Method Available.

Taylor here is one of our customers who was not able to figure out the problem and contacted our support for the same. You see, after setting up the FedEx plugin she was not able to see the FedEx rates in the WooCommerce cart. On checking the error from our side, we found that she had not entered the correct country code in the shipping address section in the plugin. She had entered the country code as the USA instead of the US which had resulted in the problem.

On the FedEx official website, they have clearly mentioned that all the country code should be entered in the 2 Digit Format. You can refer this link to know the 2 digit country codes for different countries.

Another common mistake that users make is when they have to choose between the Origin Address and the Shipping Address.

The Origin Address is the Billing address that you would have mentioned on Your profile page under the WooCommerce-> Users option. While the Shipping Address should be the location from you wish to ship your orders. This is why the store owners who have a separate warehouse or company should choose the Shipping Address.
