Magento Currency Switcher

This language and currency switcher extension is a highly useful tool for businesses looking towards expanding their selling parameters and opening stores in new regions. To increase sales in new regions the store must be equipped with their local currency options to allow locals to pay without losing their money into conversion. The currency can be set to change based on the customer’s location.

Magento Language Switcher

Similarly, to get better understanding of the product and the store policies, you can show your store content in their local language. Users can be auto-directed to their relevant store view allowing them to easily read descriptions of products and services. With native language explaining features of a product, the conversion rate automatically rises.

Auto Detects Visitor Location

This GEOIP Language switcher and currency selector extension detects the location of the user automatically with the help of MaxMind IP database. This allows the user to immediately be redirected to their designated store view without wasting any time. This prevents the user from abandoning page due to language barrier or currency in compatibility.

Manual Store Switching

For those customers that prefer international store views, you can also allow them the option to be redirected or remain on their current store view. Once the customer lands on the store, he/she can change the store view from the option on the header of the website. This way customers can stay on English store if they don’t prefer their local Indian or Russian store.

MaxMind Database

You can import a new CSV based IP database for location detection or use our exisitng MaxMind database. You can keep the MaxMind database upto date to correctly detect the customer location.

Support IP Exceptions

To make some regional customers access the website by ignoring the language and currency switching, you can set IP exception for them. These users can be whitelisted from the back end so that when they land on the website they can be exempted in the language and currency switching process.
