Magento 2.x ~ 2.2.x

Our Regional Manager extension allows you to create and manage geograhical regions with customized settings. It assigns the customer to a certain region depending on his/her place of residence.

With M2 Regional Manager you can finally detect exactly where your customers are located. You will have the ability to identify countries, continents, states, cities, and language enclaves throughout the world, we call these 
Regions. With Regional Manager you can assign default languages (store views) to these Regions and automatically redirect users from within a Region to the assigned Store View.

Magento's Native Functionality and Where It Falls Short

Magento allows you to create Store Views which can be used to translate the text of your website to a specific language. Magento also makes it possible for you to offer multiple currencies on your website, by automatically converting your product pricing to each of the offered currencies. What Magento offers natively is not sufficient to run a truely globalized ecommerce website.

Magento Websites are used by administrators to offer separate brands to different demographics of customers. Magento Websites allow you to have separate categories, products, currencies, configurations, orders, customers and more. These websites allow you to run completely different businesses from a single Magento installation.

 - Maintain a separate customer base
 - Separate orders
 - Offer different currencies
 - Payment Methods
 - Shipping Methods
 - Products
 - Categories
 - Website CMS pages and static blocks of content
 - Different email templates
 - Different brand names, hours of operation, contact information
 - Provide a completely different theme from other websites
   and Create a completely separate brand for a separate demographic
 - Offer specific Websites based upon the web domain that was accessed
   (requires a developer)

Example Websites:

 - Pet Store Brand
 - Software Brand
 - Women's Fashion Brand
 - Travel Accessories Brand
 - Car Dealership Brand

Magento Store Groups, also known as just Stores, allow you to change the look and feel of your brand (Websites). You would use Store Groups when offering your brand to businesses verses offering it to the general public. Store Groups also allow you to change the categories, products and prices offered.

 - Offer a different theme within the same brand (website)
 - Offer different product categories and products
 - The customer base is the same between store groups
 - The orders are the same
 - Pricing, currencies, and payment methods are the same
 - There is little to differentiate between store groups
 - Offer specific Store Groups based upon the web domain
   that was accessed (requires a developer)

Example Store Groups:

 - Dealer Website
 - Public Website

Magento Store Views allow you to change only the translation of your cms pages, static blocks, categories, products and other labels throughout your brand. Store Views allow you to create a "localized" copy of your brand for different countries.

 - Specify different language translations between store groups
 - Offer specific Store Views based upon the web domain that was accessed (requires a developer)

Example Store Views:

 - English Translation
 - Spanish Translation
 - Chinese Translation
 - French Translation

Magento does not know where a customer is located and cannot redirect the customer to the correct localized store view. You can only offer a dropdown or choice of languages (store views) and currencies to your customers. This creates a frustrating experience for users that are looking to purchase from an international brand.

Regional Manager Creates A Truly International Business

Geolocation Detection

With M2 Regional Manager you can finally detect exactly where your customers are located. You will have the ability to identify countries, continents, states, cities, and language enclaves throughout the world, we call these Regions. With Regional Manager you can assign default languages (store views) to these Regions and automatically redirect users from within a Region to the assigned Store View.

We use a number of factors to determine a customers Geo Location, such as:

  1. When a user is logged in and we already know their location
  2. GPS Coordinates offered by their mobile device (location sharing enabled)
  3. IPv6 is the second most accurate form of geolocation without actually knowing the customers coordinates
  4. IPv4 cross-referenced with the GeoLite coordinates database stored locally
  5. We make it possible for you to easily ask your customers where they're from

Once the customer's geolocation has been determined, Regional Manager will switch them to the assigned Store View or Website.

Complete Localization For Store Views

With the help of a developer you can separate your Store Views by domain name, such as .com for America, .br for Brazil, .co.uk for Europe, .ru for Russia and more.

With the addition of the Regional Manager to your Magento installation you will have the ability to assign specific offerings to each of your Store Views. Here's a few of the things that you can specify for each Region that you create.

 - Assign multiple store views, including a default
 - Includes the ability to automatically redirect your
   customers to the default store view within a region
 - Specify a default currency to display your products in
 - Specify shipping methods available within a region
   and assign a default shipping method
 - Specify payment methods available within a region
   and assign a default payment method
 - Product Categories
