OverviewBack to top
Customers sometime hesitate to shop on eCommerce sites that serve a global audience. Every new visitor needs to tell the eCommerce website, which language they are comfortable in and what currency they would prefer. Some customers get annoyed seeing the content in a foreign language and just leave the website not even looking to change the default language. A new visitor dropping out without even browsing through the products would be heartbreak for any eCommerce merchant. Some customers also find it arduous to search for exchange rates and calculate the product prices to know their actual cost in their local currency. Catering to global customers and giving them a blue-chip experience at the same, is always paramount to any eCommerce merchant. ‘GeoIP Currency & Language Switcher Extension’ brings you a step closer to achieving that.
Once a merchant installs this extension and updates the MaxMind database, GeoIP location feature automatically identifies a visitor's geographic location based on their IP address and redirects them to the respective Store or URL and displays content localized based on their Language and Currency. This immediately makes the customer feel connected to the store resulting in better conversion. GeoIP Currency & Language Switcher extension allows you to automatically switch and display the product prices in the base currency of the visitor’s county (Geo IP). For example, after installing the extension, the product prices would be displayed in USD for US residents, in Canadian Dollars for Canadian residents, in Euro for Eurozone residents or any respective currency based on the visitor’s country. With our GeoIP Currency & Language Switcher extension, the customers will automatically see their local currency selected as the display currency for the product prices. Exchange rates can also be set manually for each country. Customers always have the option to manually change the displayed currency as earlier.
MaxMind is the industry leader in providing IP intelligence through the GeoIP brand. ‘GeoIP Currency & Language Switcher Extension’ allows the merchant to use MaxMind’s GEO Lite2 Database to detect a visitor’s IP Address and map it with their geographic location.
