You only need to indicate a name and Stateto indicate for example that deliveries are not made in America. If you have set the multi-shop mode, you can also associate an area with a selection of shops.

In this case we can create a zone called Canary Islands to establish after different cost of shipments to that specific area.

assigns different price of transportation to Canary Islands which in the rest of Spain

This is done we can begin to configure the provinces/States that you receive different names depending on the country. PrestaShop 1.7 already contains by default the provinces of countries (including Spain), so it will not be necessary to add them manually.

To create a new province or State click on the button Add new State to open the form of creation.

PrestaShop 17 already contains the provinces and States from all countries

1. go to the following page:

2.-beam click in the two letter code of the State, the entry in the table column.

3. it will open a page where you can check the status code.

4. When you find it, deletes the prefix of the country with the purpose of obtaining one less than 4 character code. For example, the ISO complete code for Madrid, ES-M. Just use "M" as ISO code and link this State to the corresponding country using the list of Country.
