I'm using magento 2.0.7 and I'm trying to change the default Country on the checkout page, from United States to United Kingdom. I have already set from STORES > CONFIGURATION > SALES > SHIPPING METHODS, the method option to specific country, and only selected UK, but it still doesn't work, probably because I have to edit any file.

Change Sales/Tax/Default Tax Destination Calculation

for more information on how this logic works:

vars config:

  • defaultCountryId
  • defaultRegionId
  • defaultPostcode
  • This is not the right answer.

In the Admin area, Stores > Settings > Configuration > General > General > Country Options > Default Country, select desired country from the list.

Then clean 'Configuration' and 'Page Cache' caches (System > Tools > Cache Management).

And finally you have to clear cookies from the browser.
