Hello good wcfm team,
First of all, this is a highly requested feature, it can be done somewhat by GEO my WP and I’ve tested it, but it is not optimal.
Without needing to add GEO my WP and doing extra pages and steps, it would be really cool if people can simply search location as categories in store search sidebar, search based on shipping settings Vendor sets,
Desired Example :-
If Vendor has shipping settings to ship to all India, then in website/shop categories/filters if you click on India then you will see products shipped to India including his.
Screenshot Example : https://www.dropbox.com/s/l3hz0aveks47x28/Countries%20and%20States%20search.png?dl=0
Is this possible ?

I understand this requirement, we will implement soon.
Will update you both as we will work on this.

Just an update,
You already implemented something similar to stores list, you can search them by Country / State.
I wish we can have whatever we put in shipping settings show up in sidebar filters

“You already implemented something similar to stores list, you can search them by Country / State.”
– Actually, Store has an address so it’s easy to implement. But products does not have any such thing.
So first it’s required to have city/state for each product.
Well, I think this can be easily achievable by using product custom field, category assignment.
But, it will be very dangerous to search using Shipping setting! Site may goes down.
Think about 10K+ product and 1K+ vendors, how much resource this search will take!

“– Actually, Store has an address so it’s easy to implement. But products does not have any such thing.”
You’re the expert I will go with your judgment.
I currently use separate category called state/city for vendors to choose while editing product to help customers search products by state/city, but it is not connected to the shipping, so it is extra step I wish I can remove it somehow.
Check screenshots of my way :
1- (Product Manager) : https://www.dropbox.com/s/c2cgz383hqos0oa/shipping%205.jpg?dl=0
2- (Shop Sidebar) : https://www.dropbox.com/s/ft7gervjpznke7g/shipping%203.jpg?dl=0
So, do I stick with my solution or you have a better way of doing this instead of adding extra inconvenient steps for vendors everytime they add/edit products ?

Actually, I am also thinking about suggesting you the same.
WordPress filter best works with taxonomy filter, so this is most easiest solution.
If we store city/state/country as product meta and filter using those then site will slow down.
