About Blockade

Block visitors from unwanted countries with ease. Control which countries cannot enter your store. Unwanted visitors will be outright blocked from visiting your store.

There is only one very bad mistake!!! Hopefully does not lead to me being sued !!!!

There is written: The store you tried to access does support your region. => It must be: The store you tried to access does not support your region.
