    We ship primarily in the US and Canada but we offer shipping world wide.
    Have made the country selections that now show up in the Countries List in the shipping cart, but it's a little long and would really like to be able to force our most used ship to countries to appear at the top of the Countries List, to be followed by the rest of the countries in alphabetical order.
    Can this be done please and if so, how to do it?

    And further to that, is there a way to thin/delete some of the country names within the geographic zones? We don't need many of those countries and when included the list of countries in the shopping cart is extremely long.

    After several consults with Mal on the difficulties of changes to shorten the Country List I've hit upon a solution that helps. In our case we are a Premium Account, using UPS and USPS autofilling shipping quotes.
    The work around to scrolling down the long list is the discovery that you can type in as well as scroll down to select the Destination Country. Type in the country name you want and you don't have to scroll through the list of countries. But as it is now the window says "Please Select", so the shopper thinks one must scroll down.
    In the Advanced Shipping section - Countries List page there is a text box for entering your own text on what goes next to the left of that window. We are using that text box to tell shopper to "Type in or Scroll to Destination Country" and help them realize they can type the country in the box instead of scrolling.
