Checkout: Country Default

Shopify Partner

Hi - is there any way to select the the default country in the drop down list on the checkout page? My shop is in Australia, but it defaults to 'United States' if I have it in the list. I do want to ship to rest of world, but I want the default selection on this page to be 'Australia' - or failing that, the 'Please Select' option. Is this possible? It should be!

Cheers.

This defaults to the country that has placed the most orders in your shop. We look up all addresses for your orders, sort by country, and pick the one country with the most occurrences. Worth noting is that this also includes test orders, so you can manipulate what the default country is.

Hello Caroline,

It seems that the country drop down is empty and it wont allow us to add any countries at the check out. Do we need to add them one by one or is there another way?


Thanks.
