Restricted Products Can’t Ship to Outside of Certain Countries.

In this scenario, our requirement is to prevent shipping certain products to countries outside of the European Union (EU 27).  Similar to the last blog, you should set up an unpublished category for the restricted products.  Then, in SD, we check if both the shipping address is outside the permitted countries and the cart contains restricted products.  If this condition occurs, the ErrorExit line will cause the message "Sorry, we can't ship restricted products outside the EU" to appear to the customer, and prevent them from checking out. (The double quotes are required because Description Expression is an expression)
