Hi! im looking to have a local store and an international store. The reason is because I offer different prices (not currencies, prices). I need to restrict the shipping options on the local shop to only local and no other country. The international store would ship everywhere else. 

 

I would also have my local clients to be redirected to the (lower priced) shop, the same goes for the international clients, id like them to be redirected to their shop.

Generally done with shipping profiles.

If you have multiple stores try to negotiate a multi-store rate plan.

 

As for redirection that is a separate issue that depends on things like where do customers land, is there a third non-store site, will the stores themes be customized to redirect between each other,etc

Hi Paul thank you for the suggestions. I have the basic shopify plan.

 

My initial idea was to have my international store as my main store and domain with higher prices, then have a subdomain that would redirect my local market to the lower prices store. Everything has same theme and inventory. The only difference between the two is prices and products offered.

 

The problem came in when i tried to limit my local shop to only ship locally. If i deactivated any market in that subdomain, it would also deactivate them in the main store. 

 

What do i have to do to work around this? do i have to open two separate shopify accounts and run them separate?

You can achieve this within a single store using Shopify Markets. Happy to help with any specific questions you have, but different pricing and shipping restrictions can all be handled.

Hi Cole! How can achieve the shipping restriction in only the subdomain?

 

I managed to make a subdomain for my local clients and redirect them there, and I see that I can change prices in that market which is great.

 

The only thing I'm missing is restricting my local clients in that redirected subdomain to ship only locally, without messing my international store shipping options.

You can unpublish the products you don't ship internationally so they aren't viewable by people outside of your domestic market: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/markets/publishing-products-with-markets

 

And you can customize your theme messaging: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/online-store/themes/customizing-themes/store-contextualization
