X-Cart has a built-in list of 249 countries with states configured for 11 of them (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, United Kingdom, and the United States). All information on countries and states in X-Cart is based on ISO_3166-2.

You can check the countries list in your online store on the Countries page in the Admin area:

  • X-Cart 5.4.x - Store Setup > Countries, States, and Zones > Countries

  • X-Cart 5.5.x - Store Management > Localization > Countries

A store admin can enable/disable countries and add states to countries if necessary on this page. The management is the same for both X-Cart 5.4.x and 5.5.x.

Updating Country Status

To change a country status, a store admin should:

  1. Locate a country you want to modify.
    For this purpose, the store admin can either check the list of the countries one by one or use the search bar available on the Countries page of the store's Admin area:

    • Switch the "ON/OFF" button opposite the country in question from green to grey:

    • Select the countries that need to be enabled/disabled, click the "Status" button that will appear at the bottom of the page, and change the countries' status in bulk:
