Prestashop how to enable geolocation and use it

In PrestaShop, geolocation is used to determine the location of a customer based on their IP address. This information can be used for various purposes, such as automatically setting the customer’s currency or language, or for displaying location-specific information on your website.

Here are the steps to enable geolocation in PrestaShop:

Log in to the back office of your PrestaShop website.

Go to the “International” menu, and select “Geolocation”

On the “Geolocation” page, you will see a section called “Geolocation” with a checkbox to enable it. Check the checkbox to enable the geolocation.

You can also choose the service you want to use for geolocation, either the built-in one or a third-party service.

After enabling geolocation, it will automatically set the customer’s language and currency based on their location.

You can also use the geolocation information in your themes and modules by using the $context variable in the Smarty template engine.

To use the geolocation information in your own code, you can use the Tools::geoIP() method of the Tools class, which returns an instance of the GeoIP class, containing the geolocation information.

Note: if you’re using a third-party service for geolocation, you may need to sign up for an API key and enter it in the configuration settings.

You can also use geolocation to show different contents based on the customer’s location. You can use the customer’s country, state, city, and other details to personalize the content of your website.
