Hide the shipping banner based on visitor location
If you're running a split test, for example, only in the Germany & Austria then you likely will not want visitors from other countries to see a "Free shipping over €50" banner.
Below we have some javascript you can include that will hide the banner for all visitors from outside of Germany or Austria.
You will need to modify line #4 so that it's an array of the countries included in the current test.
We recommend placing this script just before the closing </head> tag but it can safely be placed anywhere including an external javascript file.
