    I have one popular item on my website that for strict licencing reasons can only be sent to two countries.

    Is there a way to restrict only this product? Yet allow all other products to be sent worldwide.

    I have large instructions stating this on the page concerned and even statements on the product description, but thats not working! (incredibly)

    No, There is no perfect way to restrict a person from buying it.

    I guess you could put a checkbox as part of your form that says they are from the country you ship to and have a java script making it so they cannot add the product to the cart unless they from the right one but even with that there is no guarentees.

    You could check their country before sending to the cart, but as Debbie says, it's not 100% - I find that people lie.
