Frequently Asked Questions:
1. How do I enable or disable a given sub-region within a country?
The regions listed above can be enabled or disabled under a particular product’s Edit International Shipping Options page, as seen on the View All Products page under that particular product's "Country Shipping Price" column.
Specifically, click the link under the "Country Shipping Price" column in the row of your desired product.
On the Edit International Shipping Options page that follows, you will be able to click the button under the "Enable destination" column to enable or disable shipping for a certain sub-region within a destination country. Click Save Changes to save your settings.
A merchant is unable to ship to Alaska, US for a given product, but is still able to ship this product to other US states.

Then merchant can select Save Changes in the top right of the page. Once the sub-region has been disabled, the merchant will not receive orders for Alaska, US. Please allow 24-48 hours for updates to reflect future orders.

2. Can I still ship to a given sub-region when the destination country as a whole is disabled?
If the destination country as a whole is disabled, all sub-regions will also be disabled. Orders will not be received for that given country.
3. Can I set shipping prices for certain sub-regions within a country?
Yes, shipping prices for sub-regions within a country are editable. The sub-region price can be set to max 2 times the country’s shipping price (merchants based in Mainland China may learn more here; merchants based outside of Mainland China may learn more here).
4. Can I edit the sub-region shipping price of a promoted product?
Yes. Per Merchant Policy 3.1, raising the product or shipping prices of a promoted product is allowed, as long as the increase is within the acceptance range.
5. How do I update the sub-region shipping options via CSV?
Sub-region shipping options can be updated by going to the Merchant Dashboard Products > Edit Shipping Prices for Existing Products > Product CSV File page.
Sub-region shipping can be edited the same as editing overall country shipping. To learn more on how to update shipping prices per product per destination via CSV file, check out this link here.
Similar to editing overall country shipping prices, you can specify ‘disabled’ or ‘enabled’ to determine whether customers in this sub-region can buy the product. You can also specify ‘use country shipping price’ to unset the sub-regional shipping.
To update the shipping price for a different sub-region, use their country code + ’_’ + region code defined here (example: US_HI).
Merchants may also edit max delivery days (a part of the shipping options on a product level, along with shipping prices) via CSV file (merchants based in Mainland China may learn more here; merchants based outside of Mainland China may learn more here).

Note that sub-region max delivery days currently cannot be set via API.
