When shipping a package to Korea using FedEx, the error message "Error Invalid Zipcode" is displayed.


As of April 4, 2016, FedEx requires all Korean addresses to use a 5-digit postal code. 


To resolve this issue:
  1. Ensure that you are using a 5-digit postal code when shipping to Korea.
  2. If you are using a 5-digit postal code and are still receiving this error, run a Demand Download for FedEx:
    1. Open the FedEx Ship Manager Server folder on your desktop.
    2. Double-click on FSMS Demand Download.
    3. Select all of the check boxes, then select Start in the upper right.
    4. When the downloads finish, the Start button will change to Close. Select Close.
    5. Restart the computer.
If the issue persists, contact software support.
