Limiting Sales to US and Canada for Digital Products

New Member

I have a store. I only sell digital products. I want to limit the sale of my digital products to the United States and Canada only. So I don't have to deal with international taxes.


What is the best way to do this? I've searched the forum and Google but can't seem to find the answer. I went through the shipping tutorials but since my products are digital products I don't have shipping checked. 


If I can get help with how to set this up I would appreciate it.

Hi Shelly,


I know there are apps that block visitors based on their country based on the IP address. You can search for them using this link.


Hopefully, this helps you!

Hi @ShellyO,


Nick here from Shopify. 


To add more to what @Jason_Beacon said. There are some other apps in the Shopify app store that you could look into here. They are lock feature apps which can restrict certain countries from seeing certain products, pages and much more. For example in the Locksmith app description they mention this which you can see in the screenshot below:




You can see a link to Locksmith and some other popular lock feature apps below:


Hopefully, this helps and can do what you need it to. 


All the best, Nick
