|Countries that require "State" in billing info|
Anyone know which countries use "State" which dont?

Most of my customers are from the US and so therefore I've made the "State" field required on my payment page.
HOWEVER - i've noticed a lot of Non-US orders where the State field causes a problem....and others where it is used just like a US order.
Does anyone have a list of countries and which use "States" and which dont? (for a shipping address...for a billing address).
I just notice my cart software allows me to pre-choose which countries have the state field required...i just dont know which do!

If your cart software offers that - it then should have the list I would think.
I put together a spreadsheet a few years ago similar to what you are asking after I just searched thru a few different websites.
I take it there is not a way to just disable it as well if they are not in the United States?

We used a catch-all "Not Applicable" option in the state field, just for this particular purpose!

We ship throughout the European Union. No "State" field required anywhere.
