WooCommerce: Set Default Billing State / Country @ Checkout

by adminkys

This is a simple PGP snippet that I successfully used on a bunch of websites in order to set the default Billing country or state. This is a great way to save the user some time during checkout (and therefore increase your conversion rate) in case you almost exclusively sell to customers located in a given country or state. Nothing else to say, just… enjoy!
