GeoIP location is a very common technology which automatically detects user location through IP addresses and then performs suitable actions depending on store owners’ aims.
GeoIP usage will improve the shopping experience effectively because customers can go shopping in their own store views. Customers in each region have specific insight, demands, and shopping behaviors; therefore; redirecting them to their relevant store will be a better way to enhance personalization and also create a convenient shopping experience. Furthermore, by allowing store owners to restrict IP addresses, Magento business can limit blacklist visitors to access websites and efficiently avoid spam that causes harm to their stores.
