    PrestaShop Marketplace Block Product {User Guide}

    PrestaShop Marketplace Block Product offers sellers of the marketplace to block their product by customer IP or country.

    In order to determine the country of the customers, this module reads the shipping address of the customer.

    In case, if a customer is not logged in, then a customer will be able to add the product to the cart. However, the cart gets empty as soon as the customer logs in.

    The cart becomes empty only if a customer country is in the block list.

    This module will restrict the customer from buying/viewing the product if a product is not available on their IP address or country.

    Workflow of the module

    After the successful installation, a seller will get a new tab on the edit product page to block the product.

    A seller can choose to block the product on the basis of the user’s country or for specific IP addresses.

    Block product settings

    From the “Block Product” tab, a seller can block that product for particular/multiple countries & IP addresses.

    But to do so, a seller needs to save the basic details of the product first.

    save product beforehand

    There are two options. Let’s see what happens if you enable or disable the settings.

    If you disable the block product settings, then the product will be available for each and every country and IP address.

    And, if you enable, then select the country or add the IP address for which the product will not be available.

    Front-end workflow

    There are various cases according to the configuration settings. The view of the product page will differ as per various conditions.

    When the admin chooses to block the product by customer’s address.

    Case 1

    • Admin enables the display of product page.
    • Seller chooses to block the product in some specific countries.

    Now, when a customer view the seller product and the shipping address of the customer is from one of the selected countries, then the product will display along with the configured message.

    Note: Similarly, the following message will display when you block a product by the customer’s IP address. In this case, the IP address of the customer is from one of the selected countries.

    15

    Case 2

    • Admin disables the display of product page.
    • Seller chooses to block the product in some specific countries.

    When a customer views the seller product and the shipping address of the customer is from one of the selected countries, then the customer will not be able to view the product page.

    The “add to cart” button will not be available to the customer and when a customer clicks on the product to view the product detail page then the customer will be redirected to the home page.

    Note: Similarly, the following message will display when you block the product by the customer’s IP address. In this case, the IP address of the customer is from one of the selected countries.

    3-1

    Case 3

    • Admin enables the display of product page.
    • Seller chooses to block the product in some specific countries.

    But, now the customer is not logged-in i.e. store does not have a customer shipping address yet.

    So, the customer can continue “add to cart” but after entering the shipping address for the order automatically the cart will get empty as the product is not available at that address.

    When admin chooses to block the product by customer’s IP address

    In the following case, the workflow of the module will differ from blocking done by shipping address.

    • Admin enables the display of product page.
    • Seller chooses to block the product in some specific countries.

    But, now the customer is not logged in i.e., the store does not have the customer shipping address yet but the store has the customer’s IP address.

    So, a customer cannot process the order as the add to cart button will not display and configured message will be visible on the product page.

    17

    The “Add to Cart” button will not be visible on the products unavailable at customers location on seller shop page too.

    2-14

    These are some of the cases and they will depend on the configuration setting and restriction done by the admin and seller for the product.

    In this way, the seller can easily block the product from the countries as per the customer shipping address or IP address.

    So, this was all about the PrestaShop Marketplace Block Product module. I hope this document will help you in checking the functionality of the module in a better way.
