since the magentocommerce board isn't available for new topics I give it a try on StackExchange.

Today we received an order from a "blocked" country (not allowed via country options). Our customer entered a valid, allowed shipping address but an address from a "not allowed" country for the billing-address. My questions is: can we fully deny (shipping- and billing-address) orders from "not allowed" countries or is there something just misconfigured? The main problem with such a behaviour is, that we just have a tax-table for allowed countries, disallowed countries will get an incorrect, tax-free, bill.

We're using Magento CE

Thanks in advance.

If memory serves, the billing address is restricted based on the System > Configuration > General > Allowed Countries options.

  • Country is not marked in System > Configuration > General > Allowed Countries options, so either there has to be another option or something else on the magento installation is wrong. I'll try a fresh demo installation and check if this behaviour persists tomorrow.

We recently had to change our allowed countries to restrict shipping to only one country. Now we received an order from a registered customer that had registered with a country that is now no longer supported, however the order went through. Can anbody confirm this issue?
