Some countries in zones off, then...
« on: October 06, 2013, 01:42:42 PM »
Hi, I put come countries in the zones configuration off, then I guess that then , if someone tries to register from those conuntries, they cannot do, is that correct? or I must delete the countries from the list

The thing I want is that only people from a few countries can buy in my shop.

Thank you.

If you want to exclude countries from customers registration, you need to remove them from system completely.

You need to remove zones related to the country first  system -> localization -> zones

And country next. system -> localization -> countries

In removing the zones,  is there some better way to remove unwanted zones?   There are almost 400 Pages
and the best I can see is to increase the number shown on a page  to 50,  click the Master check box to turn all of them on,  then one by one uncheck any you want to keep and then select deleted.

If one only wants 2 or 3 countries this is quite a task.

What database(s) contain the zones and countries?  If one is knowledgeable in accessing the database
this would be a faster method.

You can delete from ac_countries and ac_zones (watch for prefix)

Remember to clear cache!!!

A curiosity, once you delete the countries, if someone for those deleted coutries acces to your site, what can he/she see?, a normal site and cannot register, what message do  they recieve ?

There will be no county option shown. If customer is already registered, they will not see any country in the address profile
