The app was installed automatically while I was looking at the market section on Shopify. The app lacks everything, is not smooth to adapt, and doesn't work every time. This needs a lot of improvement even to be released to merchants. The idea is great but the application is bad. The ideal scenario is to make something smooth without pop-ups and everything so it redirects each customer to their own country/currency if we select that to happen.

Update- The thing related to what you have shared is that the app doesn't really direct people to their own country-language-currency. It works some times and some times doesn't.


1. Have a video that showcases how to set up-make it work. The guide Shopify offer is not very clear. We don't know if languages will be translated automatically, same for currencies.
2. If not, should we translate every word for each language? Every time?
3. The app doesn't match or sync with the theme's aesthetics. For example, our theme uses a currency selector, the app just adds another one instead of syncing them together.

The idea scenario is to have an app that we just can customize, and just translates everything in terms of currency, and languages to each country and works 100% of the time so we can be sure it's working properly. I don't believe the popup at the beginning is a good idea, either this is to be shown at the footer or be done automatically.

Hi there, you can already automatically show the right country to your customers:

If you would like to share with us what exactly was not working about the app we would be happy to take a look.

First why the popup works only "sometimes" ? And why the language selector is on the footer ? Finally, this app is useless. The only solution to get an multi-language boutique is to pay an app (and it's about 29$ / month).

Hi there, thanks for your review. To clarify, the Geolocation app does not translate your store for you - it redirects people to the right language based on what you have configured in your Markets.

You can translate your store into different languages for free using the Translate and Adapt app:

I wish I had written a more positive review...
I just want the plugin to redirect the user to the appropriate currency and language for my site and it doesn't work, only the local currency is applied but it's impossible to redirect to a language automatically (while manually, everything works).
After two hours of support with Shopify, this does not seem to work, the support does not seem to understand anything...

Edit following your reply:
For information, the window indicating that the site must be adapted into English is displayed, but when I click on continue, the language of the site chosen does not apply. However, when I use my classic manual method to change the language, it works.

We do not automatically change the currency or language based on a visitors location because this goes against Google's guidelines and can be detrimental to your SEO.

The application could also have the option to automatically show the language for the selected country without any popup.

gracias vamos a probarlaUn tema que se menciona en relación con los factores tangibles e intangibles tiene que ver con las ventajas competitivas de
las empresas españolas, las cuales enfrentan la competencia de
los nuevos socios de la Comunidad Europea, caracterizados porque tienen economías que ofrecen menores costos de factores
de producción, como el precio del suelo y la mano de obra. Dos
últimos aspectos que enriquecen el texto se relacionan con la
búsqueda de indicadores que permitan identificar las fuerzas (de

This app is useless when Shopify does not allow to change currency to my country. Shopify only allow to some selected countries to auto change there store currencies.
