One More Great Extension in Our Portfolio: GeoIP Redirect

The ultimate goal of any online store is a simple, fast, smooth shopping process, and great customers’ experience, as a result.

A lot of tiny and significant improvements of web store functionality aim to bring customers to the checkout and order completion naturally.

However, things change when you sell to not only the local community of your town or, perhaps, national customers, but to international visitors, as well. In this case, multiple obstacles appear, from the language and currency to cultural differences, which are able to negate all your seemingly successful initiatives.

The whole process is absolutely invisible for your customers, and it seems that they do not even leave their national internet area, and the store owner is, perhaps, their close neighbor.

So, if you sell products to several customer groups originating from different locations, you need a small still highly valuable Magento extension from our partners – GeoIP Redirect.
