Payment Field: Allow to set default country in the "Country" field of the billing address

    I'm wondering if it's possible to set up a default country in the payment widget like there is in the address field? I see that, when both an address field are asked for, as well as the payment widget, people tend to rush through the payment address, and miss that country field, which causes the form to have an error. I just like to eliminate all of the possibilities of error whenever possible. Thank you so much!

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to set a default country in the country field in the payment tool. It is however, possible by prepopulating the form link like this:[country]=United%20States 

    In that link, I'm setting the country in the billing address in the payment tool to "United States".


    Here's a guide about it prepopulating the URL: 

    Let me forward this to our developers as a feature request and see if they can apply the same option to set a default country in the payment field. However, please note that I am unable to guarantee that this will be implemented anytime soon. But rest assure that we'll update you on this thread when we hear any news.
