Unfortunately, due to the new digital tax laws that will be put in place by the European Union (EU) on January 1, 2015, I will be disabling sales of tutorials to all countries within the EU. This change will be made in all places I sell tutorials, including Etsy, Craftsy and my personal web-site. I am hoping that this will be a temporary measure, however, I cannot guarantee at this time that it will not be permanent.
Also, in order to make this change, For my Etsy tutorial shop I will have to disable all payment options that do not use PayPal. This means that Etsy Direct Checkout will also be disabled (ONLY in my tutorial shop). You will still be able to use a credit card to pay for your purchase through PayPal. In the future, if Etsy makes changes to their system to either block EU payments, or comply with the new EU laws, other payment options may be returned. I apologize for the inconvenience.
**Note to other sellers of digital goods**
I've noticed a lot of other sellers are considering removing all digital goods from their shops due to this law because they don't know how to block countries in PayPal. You can find written instructions to block countries in PayPal by clicking this link. This may not be available in all countries, however if you are in the US, you should have this feature available.
I've also taken a few screenshots for those who have told me the instructions in the link above are too confusing.
These are shown using the "Classic" PayPal interface.
If you are using the new PayPal interface, the first two steps are shown below. The remaining steps look almost the same as the Classic interface.
