In Selling Service, you must explicitly define which countries that you would want to sell tangible products in. The application will check the address country of the buyer in their profile and only allow a buyer to make an order or credit card purchase if they reside in one of your allowed countries.
The PayPal 'Buy Now' and 'Subscription' buttons allow for credit card purchases in all countries. Country restrictions only apply to the 'Add To Cart' button.
You will specify each allowed country in the Shipping section.
Local shipping is a term used for selling in your own country or region. If you sell locally, you can specify that a buyer who makes an order or credit card purchase can pick up their products at the seller's physical store. The seller also has the option to deliver the products to the buyer using a local courier service. If a courier service is used, the buyer is billed for the shipping cost.
International shipping applies to buyers who lives outside of the seller's country. For international buyers, the option for in store pickup at your physical store is not usually available.
