Support » Plugin: WordPress Simple PayPal Shopping Cart » restricting shipping destination

  • Resolved tfenton


    I need to restrict the shipping destination customers can choose. I am in Australia, and I can only do domestic shipping.

    Unlike US paypal, the Australian version doesn’t appear to be able to restrict to specific shipping destinations. I contacted them, and they implied I need to do it through the website.

    As a first step, I tried changing the default country to AU:

    I had a look at HTML variables supported by paypal which suggests I should be able to pass the variable “country” to Paypal, so I inserted
    `<input type=”hidden” name=”country” value=”AU”/>
    into wspsc-cart-functions.php at line 193, but it didn’t change the default on the checkout-with-credit-card page.

    So, is there a way of excluding international orders, or at least a workaround?

    Hi Tony, to understand how this plugin works with PayPal and shipping please read the following documentation.

    Let me know if this helps you in any way.


    Thanks for your reply.
    I have read this article before. I’m using “option 2”, that is, I have a base shipping cost plus a charge per item. That bit works well.

    However the shipping cost is for domestic orders only. I cannot offer shipping outside Australia (my country), so I need to prevent international shipping.

    Unfortunatly the Australian version of Paypal does not offer the ability to turn off international shipping. Paypal said I need to do it through my website.

    You will need to block users from outside of your country from being able to see the cart or do the checkout. We don’t have anything like that for the simple cart.

    We do have an option for this in our WP eStore plugin.
