Shipping restricted means that it has to go by ground. Batteries
usually count as "dangerous goods" and thus are not allowed to
be shipped by planes, which rules out most of the delivery services.

At least in Switzerland, mouser shipped batteries fine, they just took
2-3 weeks instead of 2-3 days as they came by post and not with a delivery

Alternatively, you can try to find a local electronics distributor that
has them.
