Geo-IP Default Store View (1.0)
Geo IP Magento Store Switcher extension automatically redirects your website visitors to pre-defined store views. Pre-defined stores are configured by admin e.g. you can create a store view targeting Asian users, means it serves Asian content and products, you will assign this store to Asian region and any user coming from here will be automatically redirected to this store view. Customers can manually switch to other stores as well. Continue reading below for more details.
Geo IP Magento Store Switcher extension enables you to set default store for users from different regions e.g. separate store view for French visitors, separate store view for US visitors etc. You can also break this down in to provider types such as for retailers and wholesalers. This is useful for situations where you want to provide Geo targeted data to your website visitors e.g. you may want to offer different sets of products, you may want to hide some of your products from some countries and so on.
This addon uses Maxmind database for Geo location. Create as many store views as you want, assign each store to a specific country, region or IP. Now your website visitors will be automatically redirected to pre-defined stores. Customers can also switch to any other store view manually. Popup for store view selection is shown on the very first time they arrive on your website. A link in the footer enables them to switch over at any time
This ‘Store View Switch’ extension automatically detects IP addresses of users who are visiting your website. It will then redirect users based on the pre-defined criteria. Exceptions are supported, means that you can grant access to any IP address to any store.
