I currently have some custom coding the geolocates my customers to with the EU or outside the EU for VAT purposes.
The coding refers to this link: http://freegeoip.net/json/?callback=?
I've see that from July 1st Free GEOIP won't work anymore, can anyone point me in the direction of an alternative geolocation link that I can add into my coding?
Hi Laurelin! There are a few apps that you could check out in the app store — try searching for "geo" / "country" / "redirect"... We went with this plugin some time ago because the reliablity / uptime of that freegeoip server was already pretty sketchy and it was a one-time purchase fee, rather than a monthly subscription: https://www.blackbeltcommerce.com/country-selector
You can use our app Geo-IP Redirect Manager
It allows you to redirect customers to the relevant store by detecting their IP address. To comply with EU’s ban on geo-blocking, the app let your customers choose their store through a pop-up. It does not add codes to your theme; adheres to SEO best practice, and Google would love the way you suggest localised content to your customers.
You're welcome to send me a message if you have any question. Happy to assist.
