GeoIP location detection

The FireCheckout includes the GeoIP module in the package. It helps your customers to see the already predetermined address in checkout address fields and consequently avoid typing more. And then, there will be fewer steps left that users should fill in.

The module provides an autodetecting user address by his IP address. Based on the GeoIP2 City database provided by MaxMind and IpStack services, the extension automatically detects customer current location such as Country, Region, City. It also predefines the Postal Code.

From the point of FireCheckout page usability, the GeoIP feature will help you to:

  • accurately detect the current geolocation of visitor right during a checkout
  • provide more relevant address suggestions without making user to type
  • simplify the process of filling address fields
  • speed up the checkout process
  • significantly improve the customer experience

Magento 2 GeoIP extension includes simple configuration. You can:

  • enable/disable the module
  • choose data provider to use between MaxMind Database, MaxMind Service, IpStack

Get in touch if you have any questions about using the module.
