That is correct Kristin, the 'default' for a buyer, for some time, will remain the last country they selected in drop down for all shops visited. You will, at some time, I still make tests to understand how, revert to what is Etsy 'guess' for default country versus 'last country selected'
Jana, since you have EveryWhereElse in your 'old style' then any country selected in drop down will have that shipping price defined for EveryWhereElse,
The Etsy 'guess' is correct in some number of instances but what has not been explained yet is the mechanics of make that initial 'guess'......
See first paragraph above - if you have selected a drop down country they you have a new default so validation of initial setting is not possible.
