    If your account being a US PayPal account, the United States should be the default country. If otherwise, the UK should be set as the default county.

    If you are having an issue on this case, you should contact PayPal on your account to get this corrected.

    I don't think its a feature that I can control.

    Our Paypal Business account is set up in the United Kingdom and defaults to that country.

    Your 'Paypal Checkout' utility sends you to the Paypal United States site by default so each of our our 420 Soccer Club parents will have to change it to United Kingdom if they choose to make a payment by Credit or Debit card.

    I'm really looking for the simplest payment method that you provide with the least number fo keystrokes for the payer.

    Thank you for contacting us. I will create a ticket for this thread so our developers could check if UK can be set as default country. We will keep you updated via this thread.
