    There is an autofill on the checkout form for the State and it says – California and it is causing some issues. I want to leave the State field blank for the customer to fill.

    Some customers are receiving order confirmations that have the wrong state, California.

    “California” is auto defaulted in the State field on the checkout page. How can i make it blank?

    Please, contact administrator
    for this information.
