checkout page broken by wp-admin .htaccess protection (1 post)

    I have a problem with the WooCommerce checkout page if I protect my wp-admin folder with a dedicated .htaccess file like this :

    <FilesMatch ".*">
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from x.x.x.x
    Allow from y.y.y.y

    If this protection is set, any access to the website from an ip that is not x or y is broken: the bottom part of the checkout page (the various totals, shipping, etc.) freeze in an AJAX style : there is a white layer above this part of the page with a "loading" circle "circling".

    In my chrome developer's tool, I have the following error:

    POST *URL*/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php 403 (Forbidden) ?f=wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js,wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery-migrate.min.js:3

    So I understand that if my .htaccess is set, a POST request from any IP address (except x or y) will fail as it demands access to a file in wp-admin (is this normal ?).

    My question is:
    as it is quite often recommended to protect wp-admin with an .htaccess file that prevents access to all but the admin IPs, how can I protect this directory whitout making the woocommerce checkout page brake ?
