Search Ban Rules

Ban Rules are used to prevent certain customers from placing orders in the store.

The Search Ban Rules page displays a list of all Ban Rules currently present in the store and includes a search tool and sorting filters.  By default, the tax rules are displayed in order by the SID (System ID) number.  A different mode of sorting is available by clicking the up and down arrows in the heading of each column.
