Prevent International Purchases of Digital Products

We have digital products we sell but I only want to sell them in the US and Canada. What is the best way to make this happen?

I can't figure it out natively - perhaps the Shopify App "Fraud Filter"? If so, I can't figure out how to configure that one either. USA and Canada is valid for us but nowhere else. How would I create that rule?

Hey Doug,

Digital Downloads should work in the same way a regular download does: if you have the country in Shipping, you should be all set.

Do you offer products that are available all over the world, and this is the exception?

Lemme know. :)

  • Here's the solution we came up with
  • Set Digital Downloads to require shipping
  • Set Weight to be 0.0
  • In Carrier Shipping, create a "Free" shipping rate for products that weigh 0.0

When you do this, the checkout process requires the user to use a Credit Card issued in the country that you ship to.

What wasn't clear in my post was that we wanted to RESTRICT digital downloads to only US and Canada.
