Shopify Geolocation updated: 03/2022

Shopify Geolocation App: Advanced Store LocalizationReduce visitor confusion by tailoring your online shop directly for their region. This app introduces unprecedented level of localization control to Shopify.  The ease-of-use interface, coupled with powerful features, can work with almost any template. 

The Advanced Store Localization app is lightweight, makes minimal/reversible changes to a single Shopify theme file. Instead of tediously configuring actions per-country, the Advanced Store Localization app for Shopify allows you to organize countries into zones that can then be used to set rules for country-specific products, pages, & currency based on the visitor IP address. 

Each rule is set for all zones at once, providing a simple data entry interface. This rule set up allows multi-directional redirection with 1 row of settings.

Quickly configure rules to allow you do capture misdirected traffic and convert visitors by pointing them to products they can buy. Reduce visitor confusion by hiding products and other features of your store from those who shouldn't see it.

Stock & Inventory Based On Region
If you have inventory or products that are in stock at some warehouse locations but not others, Advanced Store Localization will show these products as out of stock based on the IP of the customer. Reliable and customizable, you can hide products that are out of stock or allow customers to purchase products when sold out.

You can input any word or number verbatim and have it automatically altered based on your preferences.

Redirection Based On IP

NEW - Speed Optimizations
Advanced Store Localization comes geared with new speed optimization, making filtering and redirects load at speeds that are much more friendly for SEO and your customers.

If you have one store with multiple currencies, multiple languages, or different markets to show different layouts with the best service of developers then this app is for you. I found this app very interesting for my store and very useful. Their development team is super helpful and always available. Thanks for all your hard work.

Impressive app!! It solves a ton of e-commerce issues and needs. You can run one shop for several countries and still offer to each country a specific content, contacts, currencies, information,... It's the perfect tool to sell globally and serve locally. Very impressive.

This app stands head and shoulders above the other currency conversion and product blocking apps in the Shopify store. Not only did it allow us to modify products and pricing automatically based on location, but it also allowed us to target specific layout elements based on location as well. And the best part is that our site did not slow down AT ALL after installing the app.

I have always been looking for an app which permits product restriction based on geo location. the product does exactly want is required, and the flexibility for home-page layout based on geo is ideal .. support from Devon has been exceptional .. timely .. with me in Australia and him in Canada.

We are using this app for multi currency and localization. It's been a great app so far doing exactly what we need it to do. Alex the dev helped us implement everything we needed. He is super fast in replying and cooperating. I think this has been the best app customer service I've ever encountered. Thank you Alex for all your help!

I used this app to work around the disappointing shortfall of Shopify when you are using multiple warehouses to store and fulfill orders. It required additional help from the developer to function for my custom requirements, but I am happy to say it is a functional workaround.
