OFAC country restrictions

The United States Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is a legal entity that enforces and administers economic and trade regulations according to US foreign policies and national security goals.

Regulations and sanctions administered by OFAC are meant to protect shoppers from terrorists, traffickers and other national security threats.

Avangate is fully compliant with OFAC regulations, restricting shoppers from the following countries from placing orders.

  • The Republic of Cuba
  • The Islamic Republic of Iran
  • The State of Libya
  • The Republic of Sudan
  • The Syrian Arab Republic
  • The Democratic People's Republic of Korea

Shoppers from restricted countries are unable to finalize payments or place orders, as the 'Buy' button is not accessible to them during the checkout process.
