  1. Currency Switcher in Frontend
    The extension identifies the GeoIP location of the user using the Maxmind database and shows the currency of the products accordingly. Here are some of the examples of web page visits from the different IP addresses of various countries and currency is auto switched based on the IP addresses.
     
  • Page Visit from USA
    The extension identifies the IP address from US and hence the price is displayed in USD.


  

  • Page Visit from the UK
    The extension identifies the IP address from UK and displays the price in Euro.


 

  • Page Visit from India
    In this case, the visitor is from India, which is identified from the IP address, and hence the price of the product is displayed in INR.
