Using the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant, it won't let me move beyond "Billing address" screen. It is requesting a valid zip code, however all of the fields are correctly filled in.
I am attending university in Korea but I'm entering my US billing address since I'll be using my US debit card. Maybe it's detected my region is Korea and wants a valid Korean address instead. Is there another method to buy Windows 8 online? I don't want the Korean version!!

Thanks. You reminded me that I have logmein installed on a family member's laptop. It just happened to be on and in the middle of the night, so I ordered. Got Windows 8 on a disc now. Unsure about the legality of what I did but I used my personal US funds to purchase software for a laptop that I bought in the US. I'm not making any money here, so I'm not sure there would be a problem.
I had the same problem living in Honduras with a Belgium VISA card.
I talked my mom in Belgium through the Upgrade Assistant so I could get the Product key
Once you have that you can just download the files from the web and burn the ISO or make a USB stick
