Example of restricted trading zones situations:

  • Products restrictions in some geographic zones (legal restrictions)
  • You are selling your products only in your countries (your business policy)
  • You encounter problems with products sold in certain countries and you decided to avoid in future such problems (your business policy)

The editable field is a text field.
Write allow to allow shipping only in countries set bellow.
Write disallow to restrict shipping in countries set bellow.
Write no_rule if you do not need any shipping restrictions. If this field is set no_rule the bellow setting (countries ids) will not be considered.

Countries ids list to apply above (comma separated)

This setting has effect only if the Basic rule (allow, disallow, no_rule) is set allow or disallow.
If the Basic rule (allow, disallow, no_rule) is set no_rule the list set here will be ignored.

To set shipping restriction, you need to list the ids of countries with shipping restrictions.
If the list of countries where you allow user to buy is smaller, than the restricted countries, than it will be easy to set the Basic rule (allow, disallow, no_rule) on allow and list here the countries ids which have no restriction.
If the restricted list is smaller than the allowed countries list, than it will be easy to set the Basic rule (allow, disallow, no_rule) on disallow and list here the restricted countries ids.
The editable field is a text field.
Write the countries IDs comma separated. The IDs of the countries can be found in Countries & taxes under Shop configuration (see Countries & taxes snapshot). In first column is the country ID and second column is the country name. Based on the name you find the IDs you need and add them in this filed one after the other comma separated.

To setup or change this setting, click the Edit button. Add or alter the input in pop-up window. Click the Update button to make the change and close the pop-up window or click the Cancel button to abandon changes.
