For Digital Download Retailers
For example, retailers selling digital goods "ship" instantly. This prevents the retailer blocking the shipment of the order once they realize the order is fraudulent. Embargo prevents fraudulent digital downloads before the bad actor is able to complete checkout.
Skipping international shipping or compliance hassles
Pass on international import or export regulations for countries you don't want to do business in.
Blockage will block visitors from countries your store doesn't support before an order is made.
How does it work?
Embargo uses as proprietary database to turn your customers' IP address into their real world location within milliseconds. Then it will verify that the visitor is allowed to enter your site based on the countries you selected in the app.

Easy installation and easy to use. Also, prompt response from Dylan to a query we had regarding whether the app places cookies on visitor's devices - it doesn't; so no GDPR concerns in that respect.

I downloaded this app to block a specific country. I blocked thespecific country with the app and I still saw views from this country days after I installed this app. So I reached out to them for help and no response. I then deleted the app and they sent me an auto email asking for my experience with it so I said again it didn't block the country and I got no help. Days later and still no response with that?? Glad I tried the free version before paying because there is obviously no support.
Hi, so sorry I missed your messages. That's unfair to you and you're right.
But I'd at least like to explain why Blockade & other blocking apps on Shopify will still show in your analytics like GA or Shopify Analytics.
Blocking apps work on the frontend of your site, at the same time as analytics tracking apps.
However, Blockade provides a baseline of protection that's going to redirect & block the vast majority of your unwanted traffic.
Again, so sorry I didn't get to your messages. Thanks for trying the app at least!
Good app, simple and efficient. Thanks to the developer Dylan who is kind and helped us for the security.
