WHAT ARE GEOBLOCKS?

Geoblocks are limits or restrictions you can impose on the purchasing of your Products from certain countries. This means when you set up a geoblock, only those countries you allow can purchase, or only those you restrict cannot purchase. Geoblocks are helpful for movies that have rights restrictions for certain areas. Geoblocking does not block watching in those territories, just purchasing. 

PRO TIP:

We strongly encourage global, simultaneous release and our platform supports subtitling and internationalization. Indie Game: The Movie launched worldwide and over 60% of sales were international.You can setup geoblocks on your products in 2 methods: allowing & blocking on any product edit page.
