I’m setting up a new Magento installation, i’ve configured it to use Paypal Direct.

Afer I enter the credit card details and click on Place Order, I get a pop-up error that says “Invalid data. There’s an error with this transaction.  Please enter a valid state in the billing address”

This is despite a valid state being types in the billing address.

Has anyone else faced this problem ?

I wrote to paypal to check this. Their response is that it only works in countries where Paypal Payment Pro is supported, so if the state you are selecting is not supported by paypal, you’ll get the error.

I have noticed the opposite.
Paypal give an error if you leave the state/province field empty.How do I make it a required field?
Btw,I have this problem with paypal website payment pro,using paypal express and paying normally without the express checkout.

I just noticed this affect only paypal italy,because in italy province is a required field.
How can i change the state/province field to be always required for all countries?
