GeoIP is a useful extension which supports store owners to detect customers’ location based on their IP addresses, then redirects the customers to the appropriate store views, languages and currencies. This feature contributes significantly to enhance user experience on shopping sites.
You've just added this product to the cart:
There is the fact that the stores which target their businesses in multiple nations need to redirect the visitors to the suitable store view with their common language.
For example, visitors coming from Vietnam will be switched to Vietnam store view with the Vietnamese language.
Product price should be converted to the appropriate currency which is commonly used or native to the customers from specific countries.
It is much more convenient for customers to go shopping in the site whose language and price currency is familiar.
The risk of visitors’ navigating away from the site shortly will be possible if they do not understand the language on site. Therefore, automatically switching store view is essential to decrease the bounce rate from this reason.
Overview of IPs The "IP" part of IP address stands for "Internet Protocol." The "address" part refers to a unique number that gets linked to all online activity you do, somewhat like a return address on a letter you have just sent out.
Working theory of GeoIP There is the fact that IP addresses are not static and can change at any time. This can be different when there is change in all information technology devices (printers, routers, modems, etc).Depending on this theory, in online shopping stores, Geo IP will work based on customers’ IP addresses.
Depending on the difference in IPs, Geo IP supports store owners to detect the estimated customers’ location, especially nations.
This detection is really useful and significant to any international stores which open various branches in different countries.
Redirect to specific Store View and language Visitors coming to an international store will be redirected their appropriate store view with the familiar language. Thanks to the detection of IP addresses from Geo Ip and the switching function of Store Switcher, customers can totally feel relaxed with their familiar language when they are surfing on any international page.
Automatically switch to the appropriate currency
Besides, this mixture helps customers view products in appropriate price currency which is widely used (such as USD) or native to the customer’s country. Customers do not need to change the product price to their wished currencies by themselves. Every currency converting action is totally automatic
GeoIP and Store Switcher supports greatly in enhancing user satisfaction by improving the usability and accessibility of users when they visit store sites.
Being automatically switched to the appropriate store views with the familiar languages and currencies, customers will feel the shopping sites much more friendly and convenient. As a result, customers can invest their time to focus on shopping and picking up their favorite items with ease.
This can be done properly if you install GeoIP and Store Switcher. Two extensions support each other effectively to make your wish come true.
