Hi Kershnee,
Yes, I am refering to sales on my own store.
I have also had the same question asked of me on another forum.
The Merchandise that I wish to market can only be sold within Australia due to postage prices.
I was wondering if it was possible to sell just within Australia.
I can put a notice on the Home page, but as you probably know, many customers don't read!!
On other websites, it is possible to restrict sales to just one or a few areas and I was wondering if it was at all possible for a Yola site.

Hi Jenny,
I am not aware of a way to only allow a certain demographic to purchase your product. I would say that the best way to do it would be to state that you only ship in Australia in quite a few places on your site, possibly even in the product description area. You could put in a support request to PayPal and ask if they have a feature like this, and if they do you would be able to create your own PayPal button and put it on your Yola site using the HTML widget. Here is a link: PayPal Help Center.

Jenny, like Emmy said, if you use PayPal, you can limit your shipping to the countries you wish. It's in your profile, where you set up shipping regions. You might still want to put a notice, or three, on your site, because, like you said, often people don't read.
