Shipping to an APO address - Military Mail


You can set up your Shift4Shop shop to accept orders going to US military shipping addresses. To do this, you would need to specify the appropriate APO "States" in your US Shipping Country specifications.

Setting APO "States"

  1. Go to Settings >Shipping
  2. Under "Country List" click on the link labeled "Edit Countries" to view your store's selected countries.
  3. Look for the United States and click on the "Action > Check States" to the right of the listing.
  4. Use the "+Add New" button at the top of the page to add your specific APO address
    (See below)

The APO Addresses are:

  • Armed Forces Europe
    Abbreviation: AE
  • Armed Forces Pacific
    Abbreviation: AP
  • Armed Forces Americas
    Abbreviation: AA
  1. Click "Save" to add each

This will add these three APO options to the States drop down on the Checkout process, allowing customers from these military locations to place orders on your site. Remember that you also need to have Shipping and Payment options enabled for customers from these addresses.

Please be aware that of the various shipping carriers, APO and FPO shipping addresses are primarily only recognized by USPS. Therefore, your FedEx and UPS methods may not work correctly with these types of addresses. Please check with your carrier service for more information.
