Create Rules for Blocking Users
WooCommerce geolocation based products plugin helps you to create rules to restrict users of certain countries from accessing your eCommerce website or selected products and categories. Add a custom title to each rule and prioritize it to take effect as per your choice.
Auto-detection of IP Based Location
WooCommerce geoip plugin is backed by the MaxMind database that automatically recognizes the physical location of a visitor from his IP address. This ensures real-time automatic detection of users’ location to ban them straight away from accessing the entire website or parts of it.
Block Users by Region and Countries
A list of countries is available with segregation to its continent to help you easily select and ban visitors. With WooCommerce location filter plugin, you can select an entire region to ban or choose countries one by one from multiple continents. Create a region of your own to stop them browsing your store.
Option to Block Entire Website
You can block your entire website for a specific country or regions. If your entire eCommerce website is set to target Europe, you can straightaway ban visitors from Asia or another region who are not relevant to your online store.
Option to Block Specific Products and Categories
With WooCommerce geolocation plugin, you can select products and categories to block for a country. This helps you increase exposure of certain products to your desired territories, and the irrelevant users will be unable to browse them.
Option to Hide CMS Pages from Users
WooCommerce location filter allows you to hide CMS pages from users of specific countries to make sure the content is communicated to the right audiences. It can help you restrict information like shipping details and return policy for a region that may not be applicable to the other one.
Redirect Banned Users or Show Custom Message
With WooCommerce geoip plugin, you can either redirect the banned users to a more relevant page or show them a custom message to communicate restrictions. Provide an alternative URL if you select the users to redirect or write compelling text for error message.
Whitelist Web Users with IP Exceptions
With the help of IP exceptions, you can allow users to bypass the restrictions you have created for their country. You will need to add their IP addresses in the exception field to let them continue browsing the store despite regional restrictions.
Schedule GEO IP Ban Rules
Select a start and end date for the rule you create to schedule user restrictions for a specific time period. This helps you in banning users from a country or region for a limited time and allowing them to visit the website once the rule expires.
Import GEO IP Database to Your Store
WooCommerce geolocation plugin is powered by MaxMind Country IP database that supplements auto-detection of users’ location with respect to their IP addresses. You can import another GEO IP Database if not satisfied with the available one.
