WooCommerce: Detecting Current User Country (Geolocation)

by Tutor Aspire

In the redesign of Business Bloomer homepage, launched recently, I wanted to add some “personalization” to the main headline. In detail, I wanted to make use of PHP and WooCommerce inbuilt MaxMind Geolocation (when enabled from the General Settings Tab of course) to print a custom greeting on the screen.

The detection of the current user country could be very useful for other tasks, such as disabling payment gateways and shipping methods, printing country-specific content and so on. And as usual, this “detection” is done with one line of code!
