How to add or edit Provinces

Auctiva Commerce allows you to add or edit the available states or provinces within a country to suit your specific needs. You can add, edit or delete states or provinces as required. IMPORTANT NOTE - If you add or edit a province be sure to use the correct province code if available. A list of unaudited province codes can be found Here. As this list is unaudited it is recommended that you confirm the correct province code and name with resources local to your region.

Add/Edit/Delete a Province

  • In Auctiva Commerce administration, go to Store > Shipping > Countries.
  • On the Countries page, you will see an alphabetical list of all available countries in the left section, and the Add Country form in the right section.
  • To add, edit, or delete a province, click on the underlined number in the Provinces column for the country you wish to edit. A list of the available provinces for that country will load.
  • To add a province, use the Add Province section in the right-panel. Enter the Province Code and Name. Click the ADD button when finished.
  • If you want to edit an existing province, click the EDIT icon for the province you want to change. This will load the province details in the edit panel where they can be edited. Click the SAVE button when finished.
  • A list of unaudited province codes can be found Here. As this list is unaudited it is recommended that you confirm the correct province code / name with resources local to your region.
  • To delete a province, click the DELETE icon (the RED X). Double check that you don't have any Tax or Shipping Rules that depend upon the existence of the province before deleting it.

Note that edits to your installed countries or provinces will be immediately reflected on your storefront. If, for example, you delete the province Alberta from your list of available provinces in Canada the drop-downs used for shipping estimation and during Checkout will no longer contain Alberta.
