WooCommerce: Set country by default in checkout page

I am using WooCommerce in my Wordpress web site. The customers billing and shipping details are populated by default on checkout page. I want that the country will not be set by default. Instead it will asked to select country even if user is logged in.

Any suggestions? What I should do in order to achieve this?


This are the woocommerce hooks for this purpose (see in here). I am not sure, but you could try this (untested):

 * Manipulate default state and countries
add_filter( 'default_checkout_country', 'change_default_checkout_country' );
add_filter( 'default_checkout_state', 'change_default_checkout_state' );
function change_default_checkout_country() {
  return null;
function change_default_checkout_state() {
  return null;

You have to paste that code in the function.php file of your active child theme or theme…
I have replaced the country code 'xx' by null
