Overview

Back to top

The Store Locator extension allows sellers to have their customers locate physical stores/dealers with the help of Google Maps. Upon successful installation of the Store Locator extension, the link to the Store Locator page appears on the top navigation menu of the website. On the Magento back-end, the seller can add multiple physical stores one by one or through CSV file import through the Store Locator extension interface. The Geo-coordinates of the stores are automatically fetched based on the store address.

On the website, the Store Locator extension provides multiple search fields for the customers to search for the stores/dealers near their location. They can also set a distance range limit to search for the stores nearby. For example, if they set the range as 5 miles, all stores within the selected range will appear in the list and on the Google map.

Results will appear on the Google map as Markers as well as a list.  Clicking on the marker will display the details of the store. The Stores that appear as a search result will display the Store name, Address, Contact info, Store Open/Close time and day etc. Upon clicking the 'Get Directions' button, the customer would navigate to the store detail page where they can select the mode of travel to the store to estimate the time it would take to reach the store.

 

Account & Pricing

You must create a separate Google Cloud Account to generate a Google Maps API key.  Additional charges apply to use Google Maps API.

 

Features:

  • Add Multiple Stores
    Multiple physical stores can be added. The store details can be added one by one or by uploading a CSV file.
  • Import/Export Stores 
    The extension provides a link to download a sample CSV file which can be updated and uploaded to the Magento store through the extension. The extension also validates the data of the uploaded file and gives the count of valid and invalid rows. The extension also has the feature to export store details as a CSV file.
  • Store List 
    As soon as the Store Locator extension is installed, it automatically generates a Store Locator page. When the store details are updated in the extension, these would appear on the frontend. Customers can search the store by Name, Address, Radius and Zip code. When a customer clicks on the location icon, the details of a store will be displayed in a popup.
  • Directions
