You can choose to limit the suggestions appearing in the address autocompletion list shown below to just zip (post) codes and cities if you don't want the first line of street addresses to appear.
You might want to be able to have your store names, addresses or other fields on the locator displayed in a different language. For example, a French or Thai version of the locator which is fully localised in terms of the details presented to the user (and not just the language of the interface). Here's our guide to setting this up.
In this guide we describe how to integrate your store locator with Google or Bing Analytics. This guide can also be used to integrate your locator with any external script.
When you start typing an address into the input field at the top of our locator, it will pop up a list of suggested addresses which match the partial address that you've entered. You have the option of choosing countries from a list.
One useful piece of functionality that you might want to add to your website or online store is the ability to link an address search field to your store locator so that when customers enter an address into the search field, an address lookup is automatically performed in the store locator. For example, you might have a small search box on your home page which allows customers to enter a zip code or post code to search for which will immediately open up your store locator.
One of the questions we get commonly asked is "Can I set up my Store Locator so that our customers can filter based on the type of product a store sells?". The short answer is yes you can and in this blog article we explain how this is done.
As you probably already know, access to the Google Maps API is almost certainly required for your locator to work properly. The background for why and when this is needed can be found in our blog article.
