"You mention at the end that I can choose a Localization for destination! How is that?

As I am facing a problem that certain products can't be shipped to certain countries! I know I can hide the product with localization, but what if someone decides to buy it from a different country and ships it to another country (the one that I can't ship that certain product to)?

Thanks,"
