    https://wedevs.com/dokan/modules/geolocation/

    With this extension, admin will be able to:
    Set the location of the map in where it will be shown in the page
    Enable filtering option for customers to search for their location
    Enable the location tab in the single product page
    Set a maximum/minimum distance which the users can set when searching
    With this extension, customers will be able to:
    Search for a product in a specific area
    Set the radius distance when searching
    Search using differenct metrcis. Such as Kilometre/Miles
    Set a maximum/minimum distance which the users can set when searching

    I am looking to create a marketplace which will allow the customer to search products in their vicinity for hyper fast deliveries.

    Using the geomywp plugin, i am able to search stores which belong in that region but a user cannot search it by product.

    So say if someone searches for apple iphone, they will find it but they will not know which store or whether they will be able to deliver HYPER FAST (this is the USP of the idea)

    Looking for a way to allow the customer to predetermine the product location and also the vendor to set their radius of coverage for delivery with in 24 hours (hyper fast), currently we can do it using pin codes, but again there is no way to display the shipping description to the customer.

    Anyway, the way currently wcfm is built up, it will not allow product search according to location, which IMHO sucks.

    Dokan has this but doesnt have delivery + other features of wcfm.
    wcfm has all other features of dokan but i wonder how they forgot this.

    Any customer searches using product name, not vendor store name, geolocation displays stores and then user has to check out products inside the vendor store, one way will be to ask user to first search for vendors in their region and then using widget of the store product search would allow to further search for products in that store.

    it would be so much nicer if the customer can search for product name, geolocation already detected and entered in the location tab and then display results and show distance from the current location to the store/product.

    Geomywp offers nearby locations extension but i am not sure if we can integrate it on the vendor level.

    Looking for a solution to this, and i am sure when we have a solution for this we will also have a solution to allow users to search for products without the location filter as a mandatory field, this is for rural area orders, where 24 hour delivery is not possible but loss on revenue / customer is also unacceptable.

    Please help guys! Hope a few more customers of WCFM would like to do this as well, please reply if you do guys.

    Well, WCFM Marketplace already has this module and even in Free version.

    You just have to setup WCFM Admin Setting -> GEO Location – https://ibb.co/YBBwXxF

    Hence you will have radius filter for store list page – https://wcfmmp.wcfmdemos.com/stores/
    and product archive pages – https://wcfmmp.wcfmdemos.com/

    Thank You

    I was testing it, thanks a lot!
    Just one question, is it possible to enter the adresse from the profil of the user and block it?
    I would love to define a maximum ratio to 10 KM?

    Thanks a lot this product is amazing!

    Hi,

    is it possible to enter the adresse from the profil of the user and block it?
    – Sorry, not get this. Do you want to disable “address” edit once it filled up by vendors?

    I would love to define a maximum ratio to 10 KM?
    = Please add this snippet to your site –

    add_filter( 'wcfm_max_radius_to_search_options', function( $max_radius ) {
    	$max_radius = array( '10' => '10', '15' => '15', '20' => '20', '50' => '50', '100' => '100', '150' => '150', '200' => '200', '500' => '500' );
    	return $max_radius;
    });

    Add this code to your child theme’s functions.php
    In case you do not have child theme then add code using this plugin – https://wordpress.org/plugins/code-snippets/

    Thank You

      Thank you!

      For the center of the radius, the user is now entering (or is geolocated) the address.
      Is it possible to take it from his profil?
      (he has enter a location for delivery)

      THanks a lot,

    Hi,

    Well, vendors are adding only one address at their setting -> Location – https://ibb.co/nk0kB6W

    What you want to change for this?

    Thank You

    My problem is that wih my phone I’m located in an other city, So I belive that the clients of the website will have the same problem.

    It’s why I would like to have the clients located directly with the address that they enter in the form “postcode”.

    For the sellers it’s perfect like that.

    Hope it’s more clear?
    Thanks,
    Hugo

    I also urgently require this. The customer location is automatically detected or the customer is prompted to add their address.
    Then with a set radius, the particular vendors products are shown which can be delivered to them. The products will be shown if they are in the particular radius.

    Kindly please reply.
    Regards.

    if we can use google place api to get location of customer and give them result of shop which is nearby to them and we can set specific range from the shop where we deliver product .
    why we need this feature in multi vendor marketplace??
    1) we receive many orders but it is outside the delivery area customer make payment through payment gateway then we cancel order (payment stuck for minimum 74 hours) because of shop can not make delivery at their place customer get disappointed for that and they rely on us and we can not complete their wish .

    *can is it possible we get location of user and then display them shops nearby them using google place upi -> we already store longitude and latitude of shop ->then we set specific km radius to shop where they can deliver the order.

    it can helpful for us to make vendor and customer connect using google place api
    if there is plugin like this please let me know sir if wcfm can able to add this feature its much more helpful for me
    please reply ASAP

    Distance rate shipping intergration has been pending for almost a year now.

    That should make so many users happy.

    Pluginhive offers good shipping plugins for WCFM but doesn’t have distance wise.

    This is the time of UBER/SWIGGY.
    Lets do this.

    Hi guys, I don’t know if we are looking for the same thing, but, we are trying to set the site to show only vendors and products which are in a defined area.

    In other words, if a customer enters the vendors page, no matter where he is, and no matter if there are vendors in other places, it should only show him the vendors that are in the area that I set.

    Is this possible in any way, tweaking the code or anything?
    Thanks a lot in advance.
    Kind regards.

    Hi Japerez, You can already do that 🙂

    I just want to have a Geo location more efficient and set with the city of the user.

    Hi, I want to create a grocery store with a multi-vendor and I want that user can only order in his location. Means – All products will be location-specific. Users can view products as per Pincode.

    If the seller is from location A then he can only sell his product in his location and if the customer is from location B then he can’t order that product. (but the product should be visible for all)

    Is it possible with this? Please reply fast thanks 🙂
