Commerce APIs: Countries and Regions - SAP Commerce Cloud Release 1808
From openSAP Microlearning on July 11th, 2018
The new Countries REST API allows you to get a list of countries defined for either billing or delivery. The Billing Countries REST API is new and compliments the existing /delivery countries REST API. The new functionality provides the benefit of being able to distinguish between countries you deliver to versus countries you can bill from. For example, if your storefront deliveries only to European Community countries, you can still allow billing from countries outside of Europe. This call is meant to be used to populate address forms; final acceptance of the country is through a payment provider. Using the new billing countries functionality will increases data accuracy and improve the user experience for your decoupled storefront.
The new Regions API allows you to get all regions (states/provinces) associated with a specific country. This call is meant to be used to populate address forms, such as for billing or delivery.
