The zip variable allows you to manually populate the ‘Zip Code’ dimension if the Zip Option in report suite settings allows it. In previous versions of Adobe Analytics, this variable could only be manually set, typically when entering shipping information on a retail site. Improvements to Adobe Analytics allows this variable to be automatically set using geo-location data. This variable does not persist beyond the hit it is set.

Make sure the Zip Option in report suite settings is set to the desired value. You cannot use this variable if Geo zip is always used. See General Account Settings in the Admin user guide for more information.
