Configure Magento 2 Country List

Are you looking to configure Magento 2 Country List?

Magento is a powerful ecommerce platform with multiple features to help scale the ecommerce business. One amazing feature is you can set the country list where you operate the business.

In this quick tutorial, we will learn how to configure a country list in Magento 2.

Why Configure Magento 2 Country List?

Your website can open anywhere in the world. But it does not mean business is global. Would you be able to process a shipment internationally?

There are a number of taxes, forms, and shipping requirements to ship the product into different countries. That’s why brands set up different stores (under multisite) for different countries. The different stores are often run by different teams.

For a small team, it would be better to remove the option to place an order from the location you do not sell service. So if someone buys the product, they will not see the place in the list where you do not ship the product.

How to configure Magento 2 Country List Options?

Follow the steps to configure Magento 2 country list options:

  1. Login to admin panel
  2. Navigate to Stores > Configuration
Configure Magento 2 Country List
  1. Select General from the General section

Sorry, we do not ship orders to your location. We are processing the refund and you will see the amount in your account in a few days.
