Assigning values to zipcodes only

Hey there,

I am using ArcGis (agol) and am trying to color code zipcodes with a single value or statistic. I am having trouble applying the table data to the map. For example, Zipcode 12345 has a total of 100 sales, and zipcode 54321 has a total of 8000 sales. I want to apply the number of sales to each zipcode and then color coordinate.

Is this possible? I was told to figure this out without using credits. 

Thank you in advance.

Yes, it's definitely possible! Assigning symbology (color coordinating) based on a numeric attribute does not consume credits. It sounds like your sales data is separate from the ZIP areas, though? If so, performing an attribute-based join between the two layers would cost credits, and would be dependent on how many features are involved. But I wouldn't expect it to cost much. The analysis tools in AGOL should be able to give you an estimate before running it.

Hey Josh,

Yes, for data points we just have the zip code only, there is a base map I am not able to alter or add data to unfortunately so I have to combine two layers. Is it possible to manually create a layer with everything by creating polygon shapes? For example:
