For Digital Download Retailers
For example, retailers selling digital goods "ship" instantly. This prevents the retailer blocking the shipment of the order once they realize the order is fraudulent. Embargo prevents fraudulent digital downloads before the bad actor is able to complete checkout.
Skipping international shipping or compliance hassles
Pass on international import or export regulations for countries you don't want to do business in. Embargo will block visitors from countries your store doesn't support before an order is made.
How does it work?
Embargo uses as proprietary database to turn your customers' IP address into their real world location within milliseconds. Then it will verify that the visitor is allowed to enter your site based on the countries you selected in the app.
Embargo has the fastest IP to geolocation algorithm on the marketplace. It can determine the location of your customers a fraction of a second. This allows it to prevent fraud well before a bad actor can place a fake order.
Embargo runs silently in the background of your shop without hindering the experience of your target customers. Your primary customers experience will be unchanged.
Do I need to modify my theme to enable it?
Nope, unlike other apps on the marketplace, Embargo does *not* require you to change your frontend theme code whatsoever. Simply install it and that's it. If you choose to disable it through the app or uninstall it, your store will reopen to the world.
