How to limit the WooCommerce checkout form to specific countries for each language?


This is part of the solution for the issues that were presented in this thread.

You can try and use this custom code in the functions.php file of your theme.

function woo_override_checkout_fields_billing( $fields ) { 
    $fields['billing']['billing_country'] = array(
        'type'      => 'select',
        'label'     => __('My New Country List', 'woocommerce'),
        'options'   => array('TR' => 'Turkey')
    elseif (ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE=='en'){
        $fields['billing']['billing_country'] = array(
            'type'      => 'select',
            'label'     => __('My New Country List', 'woocommerce'),
            'options'   => array('AU' => 'Australia')
    return $fields;
add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_fields' , 'woo_override_checkout_fields_billing' );

Of cours, that this is an example and you will need to do some adjatments for this code to your case/countries.

Hi, Baljot.

You are right unfortunately the code does not work.
The thing is that the original code, the one from this link (hidden link), does not work either.
Even without our suggested modification and if this code is added to the functions.php file of the theme, the countries list does not change.
I'm sorry but as I already mentioned these custom modifications relate to WooCommerce and not to WPML and out of the scope of this support forum.
If you are stuck then, please consider again getting professional help as I've already suggested here

Best regards,
