Geo IP Currency and Language switcher allows your stores to change their language and currency with respect to the region the customer is from. A personalized shopping experience is all about giving the ideal features and facilities to the user without them asking about it. It works by detecting the IP location of the customer with the help of MaxMind database. To give customers even greater functionality, you can allow them to switch stores according to their preferences.

Features GEO IP Default Language Currency Switcher

Currency Switcher

This GEOIP default language currency 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 on the region of the customer’s location.

Language Switcher

Similarly, to get better understanding of the product and the store policies, you can show your store 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 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 time in store view options. This prevents the user from abandoning page due to language barrier or currency in compatibility.

Manual 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 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

To make the store view available for more users, you can increase the MaxMind database. This is simply done by importing more data from the back end in the form of CSV file. This enables you store with modern detection tools and gives you a much larger span of customer who can interact and purchase from your online store.

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.
