Shipping Rules for Zip Ranges & Shipping Service Variable

Using eCart 4.5.2, php, MySQL, from North America, I need to ship to customers internationally. My base configuration settings are for UPS “Standard” rates and they pull up fine for people in North America. However, for international shipments I need other services.

Therefore, I was thinking of changing the default to a global standard “Express Saver” which reaches most countries and areas where shipments have to be flown into Hawaii. Then, adding shipping rule(s) to set up multiple ranges of zip codes for the USA and Canada for a flat rate.

Shipping Rules
How would I set up a shipping rule that would override my default eCart shipping service code for a range of zip codes and countries? There was a specific video on this and another thread a few months ago, but cannot find them. Can someone please point me in the right direction/link or provide the answer? Thank you.

It would be nice later to figure a way to allow users to select faster services if supported in their area but that would complicate it for now. I just need to get this working first.

Shipping Service Variable
I also need to store the appropriate level of service in my orders table. I have created the column and will add it in the post on the confirm page. I am not sure what the variable name is or if I have to create a new session variable to hold and pass that information? I think that another thread today may hold part of this answer.
