    I'm completly new in Shopify & Aliexpress Dropshipping.
    On shopify checkout settings there isn't 'State/Province/Region' option...
    however this information is required on aliexpress..
    I don't get it...

    How can I order for costumer if I don't know this info...

    This is a popular method.
    No one faced with this problem except me?
    I don't think so...

    I think that on Ali this is just wherever the customer is located...so say if your customer is in San Francisco then just tap in Cali. A Google search or even better, general knowledge is all that's needed to solve this in a blink. Province/Region is because Ali is a very international site; if you shIP abroad then just pick the county or whatever, say you are shipping to London then you might put "Westminster" or wherever.
    It's not an impossible problem thankfully.

    What's your order volume like?

    Try the Oberlo plugin. It autofeeds order information.

    I second this. Gone free as well for starter sites so no investment needed

    Does Oberlo also buy from Aliexpress?

    How does it do it? Does it have access to your paypal ?

    Does it order to my customers address?

    Yes, it buys from Aliexpress and autofeeds your customer's info from your shopify store so you don't make a mistake in transcribing the info
